4 your health: Socializing tough on dieters

Posted: Updated:

Tucson- A new study reveals socializing and dining out are not a good combination if your trying to diet.

Researchers, at the University of Pittsburgh, followed 150 people who were trying to lose weight. The dieters had a 60 percent chance of overeating in a social setting especially at a restaurant.

But having company during meals wasn't the only diet risk. They admitted to over-indulging almost half the time when they dined all alone.

Boomers skipping Hepatitis-C test

Very few baby boomers are being screened for Hepatitis-C, despite recommendations they have the test done.

New data shows only 14-percent of boomers were tested last year and that's up from 12percent in 2013.

Baby boomers make up 80-percent of the over three million cases of Hepatitis-C in the U.S. but most are unaware they even have the infection.

Noise heard while sleeping helps seniors

Gentle sound stimulation could improve deep sleep and memory in older adults.

Researchers at Northwestern synced acoustic noise to the brain waves of 13 seniors as they slept. The next morning, their memory scores were three times higher than the night before.

This technique is currently being tested in patients already diagnosed with memory loss.
