Editor’s Selections: Vaccines for drug addiction, anti-oxidants for cancer, and autism rates in the USA.October 7th, 2009 Editor's Selections 20 Comments
Travis Saunders selects several notable posts each week from Health and Clinical Research. He blogs at Obesity Panacea.
- Could a vaccine help treat or prevent drug addiction? Drug Monkey thinks so.
- Are anti-oxidants actually good for you? Lisa Faulkner of Cancer Research UK explains why they may reduce cancer risk, while paradoxically assisting the survival of some cancer cells.
- Science and Sensibility examines the safety and effectiveness of midwife care during childbirth.
- Are autism rates increasing? It’s hard to say. Nestor Lopez-Duran of Child Psychology Research Blog explains (I know Dave mentioned this post earlier this week, but it really was a great read).
See you all next Wednesday!
