4 Your Health: Anti-inflammatories that fight cancer; low job numbers mean low college enrollment.

Posted: Updated:

Tucson- Adolescents who live in areas with widespread job loss are less likely to go to college.

A Duke University study looked at college admissions in states with high unemployment rates. In areas that suffered a 7-percent job loss... college attendance by the poorest youth dropped by 20 percent.

But it's not just a money issue.

Researchers say job loss can trigger emotional and academic problems in students putting college out of reach.

N-SAIDS help prevent cancer

Anti-inflammatory drugs, like aspirin, ibuprofen and naproxen, may improve survival in patients with colorectal cancer.

Scientists at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center found N-SAIDS cut the risk of dying from the disease by about a quarter.

The drugs were even more effective for patients without a specific tumor mutation and when they began taking them right after being diagnosed.
