A fifth of cancer patients experience post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), a Malaysian study has found.

About one-third of these still had consistent or worsening PTSD four years after diagnosis.

The researchers said PTSD needed to be identified, monitored and treated early.

A new study has found that although the risk of having a heart attack after sex is very low, the results found men are at more of a risk than women.

Men are more likely to suffer from a heart attack after sex than women.

According to researchers from the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute in Los Angeles, the odds of going into cardiac arrest after getting jiggy between the sheets are very low, but they did find that it is higher for guys compared to ladies.

The researchers rummaged through more than 4,5000 cardiac arrests recorded over a 13-year period in the Portland...

Wounds heal more quickly if they occur during the day rather than after dark, a study suggests.

It found burns sustained at night took an average of 28 days to heal, but just 17 for those that happened in daytime.

The effect was explained by the way body clock ticks inside nearly every human cell across a 24-hour cycle.

To give you an illustration: your dentist or hygienist will probably do a regular check on your teeth that awards you an overall “plaque score”. This score reflects the percentage surface area of your teeth that is covered or partially covered by plaque. Many patients who diligently...

Lots of studies have shown that cutting back on sleep, deliberately or otherwise, can have a serious impact on our bodies.
