Published Compounds in female ginseng could lead to new osteoporosis treatments (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
With ever-increasing life expectancy comes the challenge of treating age-related disorders such as osteoporosis. Although there are effective drugs for treating this metabolic bone disease, they can be expensive and have side effects, limiting their availability to some people. In the search for alternative drug candidates, researchers have discovered and fully replicated a compound from a botanical source, female ginseng, that had potent anti-osteoporotic activity in cellular tests.
Published How AI can help spot early risk factors for Alzheimer's disease (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Scientists have found a way to predict Alzheimer's Disease up to seven years before symptoms appear by analyzing patient records with machine learning.
Published Annual breast cancer screening beginning at 40 saves lives (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Annual breast cancer screening beginning at age 40 and continuing to at least age 79 results in the highest reduction in mortality with minimal risks.
Published Stress during pregnancy can lead to early maturation of first-born daughters (via sciencedaily.com) Original source

Published To boost a preschooler's language skills, consider reminiscing (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Book sharing is a popular way parents engage young children in conversation. However, not all parents are comfortable with book sharing and not all children like having books read to them. Research provides an alternative. To boost the quality of a preschooler's language experience and skills, consider reminiscing with them. Findings show reminiscing is very good at eliciting high quality speech from parents, and in many ways, is just as good as book sharing (wordless picture books).

Women who have both migraines and a long-term history of hot flashes and/or night sweats have a slightly higher risk of heart disease and stroke, and young women who have migraines have a higher risk of later persistent menopause symptoms, according to two new papers based on a data from a long-term study of the same group of women from their young adult to middle-age years.
Published Strongest contender in decades in fight against breast cancer (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
For decades, hormonal treatment of breast cancer has been going in one direction -- blocking estrogen. Now a global study has discovered there may be another, less toxic way to defeat the most common form of breast cancer.
Published Novel technique has potential to transform breast cancer detection (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
An innovative breast imaging technique provides high sensitivity for detecting cancer while significantly reducing the likelihood of false positive results. Researchers said the technique has the potential to offer more reliable breast cancer screening for a broader range of patients.

Published Destroying tumor cells with calcium (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Calcium ions are essential for cells, but can be toxic in higher concentrations. A team of researchers has now designed and prepared a combination drug that kills tumor cells by modulating the calcium influx into the cell. An external calcium source is not necessary because only the calcium ions already present in the tumor tissue are used, according to a new study.
Published Women exposed to toxic metals may experience earlier aging of their ovaries (via sciencedaily.com) Original source

Published Walking fitness can predict fracture risk in older adults (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
The ability to walk one kilometer comfortably can help predict fracture risk, according to researchers.
