People with a Strict Bedtime are More Successful, Study Reveals

People who go to bed at the same time every night are far more healthy and successful than their more spontaneous peers, new research reveals.

While the growing swell of sleep research tends to focus on the amount of time we sleep, scientists have found routine is just as key.   

A team measured sleep and circadian rhythms in 61 undergraduates for 30 days using sleep diaries, then compared that data to their academic performance, According to the Daily Mail.

Could GRAPES do Wonders for Your Teeth?

A natural compound found in grapes has been found to strengthen teeth and prevent tooth decay, a study says.

Scientists claim that the discovery could stop people from losing teeth and also boost the strength of fillings, allowing them to last longer, according to Daily Mail.

Grape seed extract has long been linked to health benefits such as improved heart function and better circulation. 

Now the substance could reduce tooth extractions by increasing the longevity of composite-resin fillings – or tooth-coloured fillings – which typically last only five to seven years.

An egg a day appears to help young children grow taller

An egg a day might help undernourished young children grow to a healthy height, according to a six-month study in Ecuador.

Whether soft or hard-boiled, fried or whisked into an omelette, eggs appeared to give infants a boost.

It could be a cheap way to prevent stunting, say researchers in the journal Pediatrics, according to BBC.

The first two years of life are critical for growth and development - any stunting is largely irreversible.

Poor nutrition is a major cause of stunting, along with childhood infections and illnesses.

Being married 'protects your health'

Marriage appears to be good for your health, boosting your survival chances if you have a major heart risk factor such as high cholesterol, say researchers.

A loving spouse might spur you on to look after yourself better, they told a heart conference, based on their study of nearly a million UK adults, according to BBC.

All of these people had high blood pressure, cholesterol or diabetes.

The married ones fared much better than those who were single.

Dr Paul Carter and colleagues at Aston Medical School, who carried out the work, have already shown that marriage is linked to a better chance of surviving a heart attack.

Pfizer drug delays lung cancer growth

Pfizer drug delays lung cancer growth longer than Astra's Iressa, according to study

A targeted drug being developed by Pfizer Inc held advanced lung cancer in check longer than AstraZeneca's Iressa in newly diagnosed patients, but with a higher rate of side effects, according to data.

The late-stage study of 452 patients with EGFR-positive non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) compared Pfizer's next generation oral drug, dacomitinib, with the older standard treatment that also targets abnormal epidermal growth factor receptor genes in advanced lung cancer.
