FRIDAY, March 9, 2018 -- Mental health problems can last into adulthood for girls who start having their periods at an early age, a new study suggests.
Previous research had found that girls with early periods have more frequent and severe mental health disorders, such as depression, anxiety and eating disorders. They're also more prone to substance abuse, delinquency and failing or dropping out of school.
MONDAY, March 5, 2018 -- Seeing too many social media posts from friends about their fitness activity can harm your body image, a new study contends.
"When people received more posts about exercise, it made them more concerned about their weight -- more self-conscious -- and that's not a good thing," said study co-author Stephen Rains. He's a professor of communication and an associate professor of psychology at the University of Arizona.
