Neurologists, who may know headaches better than anyone, report a much higher-than-average rate of migraines, a new survey from Norway finds. The national survey found that of 245 neurologists, 35 percent said they'd ever had migraine headaches. And 26 percent had had one in the past year - double what's reported among Norwegians as a whole.
Patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) may be able to avoid developing dementia by drinking several cups of coffee a day, the results of a new study suggest. The study showed that patients with MCI who have a plasma caffeine level of 1200 ng/mL avoided progression to dementia over the following 2 to 4 years.
Unless you're at high risk for cardiovascular disease, you probably shouldn't take a low-dose aspirin every day, a new study suggests.

The common cold is one of the most bothersome infections across all age groups, and seasonal and personal risk factors increase the risk for the development of the common cold. Cohen and colleagues examined the role of psychological stress in the pathology of the common cold. Their results, which were published in the August 29, 1991, issue of the New England Journal of Medicine, demonstrated that higher levels of stress promoted higher rates of infection and common cold symptoms after inoculation with different cold viruses. In fact, stress accounted for nearly a 2-fold increase in the risk for clinical symptoms of the common cold.
