Study looks at impact of ADHD through adulthood
Men who were diagnosed with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder in childhood had worse educational and financial outcomes than those without the condition, a study showed. Researchers also noted that men with ADHD as boys were more likely to be divorced, abuse drugs and show signs of antisocial behavior. The findings appear in the Archives of General Psychiatry.

Exposure to secondhand smoke may put babies at risk for asthma
The changes in the airway's smooth muscle cells caused by exposure to cigarette smoke were the same as the effects of inflammation in asthma, a study showed. Researchers studied cells from the airways of deceased fetuses and found that greater smoke exposure caused cell death. The study was presented at the American Society of Anesthesiologists meeting.

Greater stimulation at age 4 boosts later brain development
Getting more cognitive stimulation from books, educational toys or musical instruments at age 4 improved the development of several parts of the cortex during late adolescence, a study found. Researchers noted that such stimulation at age 8 and parental nurturance had no lasting impact on brain development. The findings were presented at the Society for Neuroscience meeting.

Researchers: Young children need 3 hours of exercise daily
A commentary in the Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine says medical organizations in Australia, the U.K. and the U.S. agree that children younger than 6 should be active for at least three hours a day, spread throughout the day. Researchers said, however, that studies have yet to determine how much physical activity is needed for young children to avoid obesity.

Data reveal uptick in physician office visits
Primary care visits from patients with insurance rose to 12.7 patients per day in the third quarter of 2012, compared with 12.4 per day during the same period last year, while visits to specialists also inched up, according to Truven Health Analytics. Accountable care organizations, patient-centered medical homes, and other federal and private initiatives designed to improve health care and curb costs may explain the uptick, a Truven official said.
