MONDAY, Aug. 27, 2018 -- More Americans are now dying from suicide and drug overdoses combined than from diabetes, a new report reveals.
In 2016, there were 29 deaths from suicide or drug overdose per 100,000 Americans, compared to just under 25 deaths per 100,000 from diabetes. That was up from just two years before, when death rates from the two causes were comparable, the researchers said.
SUNDAY, July 22, 2018 -- Your age doesn't determine how long you'll live after a dementia diagnosis, new research contends.
"These findings suggest that, despite all efforts, and despite being younger and perhaps physically 'healthier' than older people, survival time in people with young-onset dementia has not improved since 2000," said study author Dr. Hanneke Rhodius-Meester, from VU University Medical Center, in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
