Scientists calculate the perfect amount of sleep for folks over 40

Are you over 40 and wonder what the magic amount of sleep every night might be? A new study arrives at an answer.

Finding ways to improve sleep for older people could be crucial to helping them maintain good mental health and well-being and avoiding cognitive decline, particularly for patients with psychiatric disorders and dementias,” said study author Barbara Sahakian, from the University of Cambridge’s department of psychiatry, in England.

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are common and often easily managed, yet some women are plagued by one infection after another. Now, a new study hints at a culprit: the antibiotics used to treat them.

UTIs can affect anyone, but are particularly prevalent among women. Studies suggest that up to 80% of women develop a UTI at some point, and about one-quarter of them have frequent recurrences.
