Try this on the kids: If you do drugs, your head might explode. A new study reveals that one-fifth of young adults with a frequently fatal type of stroke caused when a blood vessel bursts inside the brain were drug abusers.
Cocaine was the drug found most often in these patients, but marijuana and amphetamines were also popular choices, report researchers at the American Stroke Association's International Stroke Conference.
The American Psychological Association reported last week that Americans engage in unhealthy behaviors such as comfort eating, poor diet choices, smoking and inactivity to help deal with stress. They say it took a national survey in partnership with the National Women's Health Resource Center and iVillage.com to reveal this -- more evidence that science is sometimes no better than your best guess.
