  • Study supports screening to reduce advanced colon cancer risk
    A study in the Annals of Internal Medicine showed people who underwent colonoscopy in the past 10 years were 71% less likely to develop advanced colon cancer than those who did not receive screening. Researchers found those who had sigmoidoscopy had a 50% reduced risk of colon cancer, but they noted sigmoidoscopy was associated with prevention of advanced tumors on only one side of the colon.

    Anxiety after giving birth was more common in mothers than postpartum depression, particularly among first-time mothers and those who had cesarean sections, a study in the journal Pediatrics showed.

  • C-section deliveries occur in wide variation across U.S. hospitals
    A study in the journal Health Affairs found a wide range in the rates of cesarean deliveries in 593 U.S. hospitals, from 7.1% of births to 69.9%. For lower-risk pregnancies, the rates varied from 2.4% to 36.5%. "Vast differences in practice patterns" are a likely factor in the variation, because hospital type, size and location did not explain the differences, a researcher said. Nurse.com (3/4)
