Canadian study finds cases rose for men after heavy snowfalls
Shoveling is the probable reason why men are more likely to suffer a heart attack after a heavy snowfall, researchers report.
In a new study, investigators analyzed data on heart attacks between the months of November and April in the province of Quebec between 1981 and 2014. About 60 percent of hospital admissions and deaths due to heart attack were in men.
The findings showed that men's risk of heart attack hospitalization and death was higher after heavy snowfalls. The highest risk was on the day after a snowfall and after snowfalls lasting two to three days. The risk of heart attack after a snowfall was higher regardless of age, cardiovascular risk factors or other health

Type 2 diabetes onset or worsening may be early sign of deadly, hard-to-detect cancer, study suggests
Developing or worsening type 2 diabetes could be an early sign of pancreatic cancer, new research suggests.
Researchers analyzed data from nearly a million patients with type 2 diabetes or pancreatic cancer in Italy and Belgium. Half of all pancreatic cancer cases were diagnosed within a year of patients being diagnosed with diabetes, the findings showed.

Contrary to popular opinion, work-related noise not the main culprit, CDC reports
The noise of modern life causes permanent hearing damage to many U.S. adults who don't even suspect they've experienced a loss, federal researchers reported Tuesday.
Up to now, it's been suspected that work-related noise has been the culprit behind most hearing loss, the researchers said.
But about 53 percent of adults with noise-induced hearing damage reported no exposure to loud sounds while on the job
Patients who took NSAIDs were also 2.5 times more likely to suffer gastrointestinal side effects
Painkillers like aspirin, Aleve and Advil don't help most people with back pain, a new review finds.
The researchers estimated that only one in six people gained a benefit from taking these nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
Meanwhile, previous research has suggested that another common painkiller, Tylenol (acetaminophen), isn't very useful either, the study authors added.
