Study Uses Diuretic To Treat Acne In Women


Researchers at the Perelman School of Medicine found that a diuretic medication may help treat acne for women. Their study focused on, Spironolactone, to see if the diuretic could be used as an alternative for antibiotic treatment. Branded under the names Aldactone and CaroSpir, the diuretic is approved to treat high blood pressure, heart failure and conditions that cause people to retain fluid. The study's lead author stated that a safe alternative to oral antibiotics could be beneficial for treating acne, so patients don't develop antibiotic resistance over time. But Spironolactone blocks the effects of male hormones, so it can only treat acne in women.

  • Study: Raise The Minimum Wage And It's Likely To Stop 1,230 People From Committing Suicide

    A working paper from the National Bureau of Economic Research has discovered a connection between so-called "deaths of despair" and the minimum wage and earned income tax credits. According to Business Insider, the study found that higher minimum wages and EITCs have had a positive impact on non-drug-related suicides among low-income Americans--especially with women. Not only do suicides generate tragedy and human suffering, they're also highly costly to the economy. One study estimates the average cost of a suicide suicide at $1.3 million, primarily due to lost productivity. The researchers predict that raising the minimum wage and EITCs could lead to 1,230 fewer suicides a year, which could save $1.6 billion annually.

  • New Study Finds Cannabis Could Improve Women's Sex Lives

    Cannabis could potentially make sex more satisfying for women, according to a new study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine. For the study, researchers surveyed 373 women about whether they used cannabis before sex, says Business Insider. Of the 127 women who said yes, 87 reported that sex was more pleasurable than sex without marijuana use beforehand. The researchers also found that women who used marijuana before sex were about two times more likely to have satisfying orgasms. Researchers said these results could be due to the substance's ability to reduce stress and anxiety.

  • Jonathann Daval face à la reconstitution du meurtre de sa femme

    Jonathann Daval est arrivé lundi peu avant 5 heures sur les lieux de la reconstitution judiciaire du meurtre de son épouse Alexia, qu’il a avoué avoir commis en octobre 2017 à Gray-la-Ville (Haute-Saône), dans une zone pavillonnaire bouclée depuis la veille au soir par la gendarmerie. La reconstitution a débuté ce lundi à l'aube, afin de coller peu ou prou aux circonstances du meurtre commis de nuit dans la maison du couple. Cette reconstitution a pour but d'éclaircir deux points : la violence des coups constatés par le médecin légiste et la crémation, en partie, du corps de la jeune femme.
