Fumar marihuana puede ayudar a aliviar el dolor, pero sólo cuando se usa en la potencia adecuada, encuentra un estudio de los EE.UU. Un equipo de la Universidad de California en San Diego encontró que una dosis baja de marihuana no producía ningún efecto, una dosis moderada ofrecía alivio moderado del dolor, y una dosis alta en realidad aumentaba el dolor del fumador.

Un estudio reveló que dormir la siesta por la tarde ayudaría a disminuir la presión sanguínea, un efecto benéfico que no se produciría descansando despierto durante el mismo lapso de tiempo. "Es interesante que se produce una reducción importante en la presión arterial durante el período de inicio del sueño vespertino sólo cuando (la persona) se dispone para dormir", dijo el doctor Greg Atkinson a Reuters Health.

Las cesáreas que no se realizan por emergencia sino por elección de la madre duplican el riesgo de la mujer de morir o desarrollar complicaciones graves luego del procedimiento, informaron el miércoles investigadores. El estudio, publicado en British Medical Journal, también mostró que en algunos casos las cesáreas aumentan el riesgo de muerte del recién nacido un 70 por ciento y se sumó a la evidencia sobre los peligros del procedimiento en comparación con el parto natural.
