“The greater cause of the stagnation in cardiovascular death rates is that the obesity epidemic, which started in this country in about 1985, is finally coming home to roost,” says Donald Lloyd-Jones, a physician and chair of the department of preventive medicine at Northwestern University.

Women in Western populations enter menopause at an average age of 51, write Dr. JoAnn Manson, of Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, and Teresa Woodruff, of Northwestern University in Chicago, in an editorial accompanying the new analysis.

Professional societies agree that women with early menopause should be considered for hormone therapy – if eligible – to manage symptoms and protect bone and vascular health, Manson and Woodruff write.

“When we talk about pneumonia, we don’t necessarily talk about whether it’s communicable or not unless it’s one of the diseases of great public interest, such as influenza, Legionnaire’s disease, and tuberculosis,” Dr. Richard Wunderink, professor of pulmonary and critical care at Northwestern Medicine, told FoxNews.com. “It’s very important to report tuberculosis, but we don’t even report if you have, say, pneumococcal pneumonia, the most common bacterial pneumonia, or mycoplasma pneumonia, another common bacterial pneumonia.”

In a study recently presented at the International Conference on Memory in Budapest, researchers examined 62 super agers and found that their brains shrink at a much slower rate than the brains of other people. But if there’s a habit all super agers have in common, researchers haven’t found it yet. “They don’t all have pristine diets or exercise regimens ― some of them drink, and some have been smoking for many years,” Emily Rogalski of Northwestern University told New Scientist. “They don’t all have a high IQ, and they aren’t all doctors and lawyers. Their health history is very variable, but cognitively, they’re doing much better than their peers.”

There are people developing autonomous cars, boats, planes and, heck, even garbage-munching aquatic drones — so why not wheelchairs, too? That’s the mission of Brenna Argall, an assistant professor of Rehabilitation Robotics at Northwestern University. Argall and her team are developing autonomous wheelchairs designed for people with severe disabilities, such as significant motor impairments or the physical inability to operate a traditional control mechanism like a joystick.

“What parents and families can do is use the Medicaid coverage they have to make the most of primary care their children have access to, as a way to prevent serious illness and injury that would require hospitalization,” said Dr. Matthew M. Davis of the Feinberg School of Medicine at Northwestern University in Chicago who coauthored an editorial alongside the new findings. “The priority for an ill or injured child in a parent’s mind is to find the best care they can at that moment,” Davis told Reuters Health by phone. “The last thing parents want to worry about is who is going to pay for that healthcare when they’re very worried about their child.”
