Prince Harry's galpal Meghan Markle always had something for Brits men

Washington D.C. [USA], Nov. 14 : Looks like Prince Harry's lady love Meghan Markle has always had something really strong for the English guys.

' The Suits' recently gushed over her fondness for British men in a newly resurfaced interview with Esquire U.K. magazine, reports Us Magazine.

"I'm from L.A. so I'm used to seeing people in sunglasses and flip-flops. There's something so romantic about a man in a scarf and a knitted hat," she continued.

Washington D.C. [USA], Nov.14 : A new study has found that sexually selected species can adapt faster to new environments, and are less likely to go extinct.

Healthy lifestyle reduces even genetic heart attack risk

Healthy lifestyle reduces even genetic heart attack risk

Washington D.C. [USA], Nov.14 : A recent study has found that even among those at high genetic risk, following a healthy lifestyle can cut in half the probability of a heart attack or similar event.

It is a well known fact that following a healthy lifestyle, not smoking, avoiding excess weight and exercising regularly can keep one away from risk of heart disease.

But what about people who have inherited gene variants known to increase risk?

"The basic message of our study is that DNA is not destiny," says Sekar Kathiresan.

"Many individuals - both physicians and members of the general public -- have looked on genetic risk as unavoidable, but for heart attack that does not appear to be the case."

Two differing medications safe for patient undergoing heart procedure

Washington D.C. [USA], Nov.14 : According to a new study, two differing blood clot prevention medications are safe and effective for patients undergoing a non-surgical procedure to open blood vessels narrowed by plaque buildup.

The scientific community has proposed both medications as potentially superior to longer-term anticoagulation treatments for patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention.

The new study sought to discover which of the two short-term treatment methods --using the drug heparin combined with a short-term (less than six hours) infusion of tirofiban, or short-term periprocedural bivalirudin, another medication that helps prevent blood clots during the procedure -- was more effective.

Washington [USA], Nov. 14 : United States President Barack Obama's successor Donald Trump, who has been a consistent opponent of marriage equality, has said that he is "fine" with same-sex marriage remaining legal across the country.

He said in an interview that he wouldn't appoint Supreme Court judges with the goal of reversing the ruling on same sex marriage, reports the CNN.

"It's irrelevant because it was already settled. It's law. It was settled in the Supreme Court. I mean it's done," he said.

FBI letters were double whammy to Presidential campaign: Hillary Clinton

Washington D.C., [U.S.], Nov. 13 : Speaking out on her stunning loss to Donald Trump in the race to the White House, Hillary Clinton asserted that FBI Director James Comey had delivered a double whammy to her candidacy in the final days of the campaign by taking another look at emails related to Clinton's private server before abruptly saying he found no wrongdoing.

A member of her national finance committee who was on the call told CNN that Clinton placed at least some of the blame on Comey for her stunning defeat to Donald Trump.

She said the first letter from Comey, sent to Congress on October 28, stopped the momentum she had built after three debates and the release of Trump's "Access Hollywood" tape.

Skipping breakfast, insufficient sleep increases risk of obesity

Washington D.C [USA], Nov. 12 : According to a new research, child obesity is linked to multiple factors such as mothers smoking in pregnancy, children skipping breakfast and not having a regular bedtime or sufficient sleep.

All three issues appear to be important factors in predicting whether a child will become overweight or obese. Since they are early life factors, they can be modified and the research highlights the possibility that prompt intervention could curb the growth in childhood obesity.

Being overweight or obese is linked to a child having poorer mental health, which can extend into adolescence and adulthood. This poorer psychosocial well-being includes low self-esteem, unhappiness as well as risky behaviours such as cigarette smoking and alcohol consumption.

Food-allergic students feel vulnerable in college

Food-allergic students feel vulnerable in college

Washington D.C [USA], Nov. 12 : In a recent study it was found that most colleges don't have integrated systems in place to support food-allergic students.

"Our study found that while many colleges offer support for students with food allergy in the dining hall, the same support doesn't carry over to organized sports, dormitories or social events" says food allergy researcher Ruchi Gupta. "That leaves students feeling vulnerable and scrambling to inform all the various departments of their needs."

The study found that while these students don't want to be defined by their allergies, they value feeling safe. They are willing to work with school officials to create more education around what administrators and other students need to know about food allergies.
