  1. Chicago hospital system scraps merger over U.S. antitrust concernRead the original story w/Photo

    Tuesday Mar 7 | Reuters

    NorthShore University HealthSystem said on Tuesday it was scrapping plans to merge with another Chicago hospital system after losing a court fight with U.S. antitrust regulators who said the merged hospital system would control more than half the area's general acute care inpatient services. NorthShore said in a statement that a federal judge had ruled for the Federal Trade Commission, which argued that NorthShore's deal to merge with Advocate Health Care violated U.S. antitrust law and would harm consumers by hiking healthcare costs and reducing incentives to upgrade services and improve quality, according to the December, 2015 complaint.

    Feb 1, 2017 | Reuters

    Bookmakers have long factored home-field advantage into a baseball team's odds of winning, but a new study suggests that jet lag could wipe it out. Researchers analyzed more than 46,000 Major League Baseball games played over the course of 20 years - from 1992 until 2011 - and saw the home-field advantage disappear when the home team traveled two time zones east and the away team visited from the same time zone.

    School shootings in the United States rise as the economy slows and unemployment increases, according to a university study published on Monday. Over the past 25 years there have been two periods of increased gun violence in U.S. schools and "the timing of these periods significantly correlates with increased economic insecurity," said researchers from Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois.

    An appeals court sided on Monday with U.S. antitrust enforcers trying to stop a merger of two Chicago hospital systems, handing the government a victory in its effort to block deals that it believes will lead to higher prices.

  5. Chemicals in indoor dust tied to antibiotic resistanceRead the original story w/Photo

    Sep 16, 2016 | Reuters

    Slowing the rise of antibiotic-resistant "superbugs" may take more than just curbing overuse of antibiotics or eliminating antimicrobial chemicals from household products like soap and cosmetics, a new study suggests. It may also require taking a closer look at antimicrobial chemicals like triclosan that are found in indoor dust, said lead study author Dr. Erica Hartmann, a researcher at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois.

    Girls who suffer maltreatment and abuse may be less likely to survive into middle age than their peers who don't experience physical or mental torment growing up, a U.S. study suggests. Researchers examined data on self-reported abuse from a national sample of almost 6,300 adults, and then followed them for two decades to see how many of them remained alive by 2015.

  7. Families can encourage mothers' breastfeedingRead the original story w/Photo

    Jul 12, 2016 | Reuters

    Why do some women breastfeed and others don't? Family culture can play a role in that decision, researchers say - as can hospitals that introduce formula to newborns. Breastfeeding rates are known to differ among racial and ethnic groups in the U.S. Now, the researchers report, their new study suggests that Hispanic women are encouraged to breastfeed by relatives, while black mothers are discouraged from breastfeeding by hospitals that introduce formula to their babies.

    Jun 6, 2016 | Reuters

    Children born in the 41st week of pregnancy - which is considered "late-term" - have better test scores and are more likely to be classified as gifted in elementary and middle school, compared with children born "full-term," that is, at 39 or 40 weeks. "It has been well-established that late-term births are associated with higher levels of neonatal health problems," Dr. David N. Figlio from Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois told Reuters Health by email. 3 comments
