Chronic stress can steal years from caregivers' lifetimes

COLUMBUS , Ohio The chronic stress that spouses and children develop while caring for Alzheimer's disease patients may shorten the caregivers' lives by as much as four to eight years, a new study suggests. The research also provides concrete evidence that the effects of chronic stress can be ...

One-third of Adults Have Had Some Form of Alcohol Use Disorder During Their Lifetimes

A survey conducted by researchers at New York based Columbia University Medical Center has shown that nearly 30 per cent of US adults have had some form of alcohol use disorder at some point in their lifetimes. Some 17.8 per cent of the adults surveyed reported experiencing alcohol abuse,...
