Eating meat may lead to bowel cancer
Feb 1, 2006: The digestion of red meat, such as beef, pork or mutton may also result in the creation of cancerogenic cells according to the scientists at the MRC Dunn Human Nutrition Unit in Britain. Previously, the studies have shown that people who regularly consume red meat are 30% more likely to develop bowel cancer than those who adhere to a vegetarian diet or people who rarely consume meat.

Future appendectomies may leave a nasty taste in your mouth
The "New Scientist" reports that the advances in the field of endoscopic surgery had led to a possibility that future appendectomies will be performed under local anesthesia and the recovery time will be greatly reduced.

The technique known as natural orifice translumenal endosurgery, or NOTES, involves pushing a small camera and a bunch of surgical tools through a patient's mouth into the stomach. A surgeon then manipulates those instruments through a small incision in a patient's stomach.

Increased mortality found after hospitalization of a spouse
Hospitalization or death of a spouse significantly increase the risk of death of the other spouse, with women being at a higher risk reports the New England Journal of Medicine.

The nine-year study that involved more than 50,000 couples aged from 65 to 98 demonstrated that the death of a wife increases the risk of death of the husband by 53% over the next month; and, in case of the death of a husband, his wife's chances of dying within the next month increase by 61%. The percentage increase in case of a hospitalization is lower: 35% increase of the risk of death for a husband (in a month following a wife's hospitalization) and a 44% risk increase for a wife.
