4 Your Health: sexting teenagers; success begins in high school; tale of two diets

Posted: Updated:

Both vegetarian and Mediterranean diets are good for the heart.

Researchers in Italy put 100 adults on a low-calorie vegetarian or Mediterranean diet, with some meat and fish. After three months, they switched. People on either diet lost similar amounts of weight and body fat.

However, the vegetarian diet was more effective at lowering cholesterol and the Mediterranean diet was better for reducing triglycerides.

High school behavior sign of success

How teens behave in high school may predict their job success and income later in life.

That's according to a new study of 2,000 high school students. Teens who showed a greater interest in school and were more responsible, tended to end up in more prestigious careers, with higher salaries.

This was true regardless of IQ, parent's income, or personality traits.

Teen sexting

A new Canadian study finds sexting is not uncommon among teens.

Data shows about one in seven adolescents has sent sexually explicit messages, photos or videos. One in four has received them. About 12 percent of teens said they have forwarded a sext without permission of the original sender.

Experts said parents should discuss the risks and possible legal consequences of sexting with their children.
