If your father was overweight during puberty, your risk of developing asthma doubles
If a father is overweight during his adolescence, his future children have a more than doubled risk of having asthma, a large generational study shows.
Children born with a hole in the wall between heart chambers are often viewed as sickly or feeble. But a new study shows that kids with this relatively common congenital heart defect are just as healthy as other children. A researcher claims we are doing them a disservice by pathologising them.
Certain children demonstrate a remarkable talent in sports at an early age. Why do some of them fade away, while others rise to the big leagues and earn millions doing so? Being born early in the year is a clear advantage, according to a Norwegian researcher.
