Women in Ohio Appalachia are 41.7% more likely to die as a result of cervical cancer than the general population. Previous research has identified both smoking and exposure to gender-based violence (GBV) as individual risk factors for cervical cancer, with significantly increased risk if these factors co-exist. Dr. Julianna Nemeth and her colleagues surveyed Ohio Appalachian women to see how common GBV and smoking were in this population, and whether they were related. This week,...

For example, childhood physical abuse can impact later drinking behavior and increase risk for alcohol abuse. This week, as part of our Special Series on Addiction and Domestic Violence, The DRAM reviews a study that examines whether specific patterns of childhood physical abuse lead to more risk for future adult drinking problems. What is the research question? Does the timing of physical abuse play a role in alcohol use during young adulthood? What did the researchers do? Researchers recruited participants...

Similarly, people who experience maltreatment during childhood are at risk for a wide range of mental health disorders. This week, as part of our Special Series on Addiction and Domestic Violence, The WAGER reviews work by Samuel K. Shultz and his colleagues that studied past childhood maltreatment among those suffering from gambling disorder. What is the research question? Are people suffering from gambling disorder (GD) more likely to have suffered from childhood maltreatment? What did the researchers do? Shultz and his colleagues...

It affects not only the abused, but also their friends and family. Children exposed to domestic violence can experience emotional and psychological consequences including anxiety, depression, and substance use. This week, as part of our Special Series on Addiction and Domestic Violence, STASH reviews a longitudinal study by Scott Menard and colleagues that explored the effects of adolescents’ exposure to violence either, themselves or their parents, on drug use as an adult.

Domestic violence can take the form of financial, physical, or verbal abuse from an intimate partner or other family member. Domestic violence leaves a lasting physical and psychological impact on the victim and their family members, including children. Victims and their loved ones exposed to domestic violence often deal with psychological problems including anxiety, depression, and substance use disorders. The reach of domestic violence is far and wide. The World Health Organization reports that globally about 35% of women have experienced physical or sexual violence in their lifetime. According to the National Coalition...

  • Pink Ribbon 09 - LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCE

    I have been using this lotion for about one year now. Yes, it is fantastic for dry skin. It's absorbed quickly and it has a barely noticeable scent that fades away almost immediately after applying it. There are plenty of reviews vouching for what it does for dry skin.

  • Chris - Album Of The Year

    I swear if Iggy or Eminem win a Grammy for album of the year, I'm giving up hip hop. This is Coles best album, if you liked Friday Night Lights then you'll love this.

  • Ackasha - loved this book!

    Where is the second book! I love books like this where all the mystical factions are represented. I loved the characters and i loved the story line!

  • FWag506 - Fuel

    I am a female who has an underactive thyroid si I have a harder time building muscle. I recently lost over 35 lbs and am trying to get toned and tightened. I tried this because I felt that a testosterone boost may stimulate some musclerosis production or overall just build stamina so that I can work harder and have some relief with better recovery. I was surprised to find that very potent fenugreek was one of the main ingredients. I used to take that to stimulate production when breastfeeding so not sure how that correlates with testosterone or building lean muscle. Anyway, it gave me a boost of energy. I took it in the morning and it made me really nauseous. So definitely take it before bed per the directions on the bottle. I have not experienced any other negative side effects and will continue taking it until I run out. I will update then hopefully I am leaving an honest review for this item because I received a dis count. Hope this helped if it did please vote helpful below.

  • T. Priest - Great for our baby

    Our little one was having some diarrhea issues that were ongoing and unexplained. She is exclusively breastfed and no formula or other foods yet. Our pediatrician recommended trying probiotics so we ordered these. Within two or three days her stool was the normal look and consistency for that of a breastfed baby. I am so happy and relieved. The dropper is glass and has the line for the dose which makes it super easy. You have to make sure you shake it well, but baby isn't bothered by taking it.

  • D. Holzer - Pricey for what it is, but decent product overall!

    Nice item. Seems to be of decent quality for what it is, although I feel like it would be at a better price point at under $50. It is a bit wobbly when attached, but that is not because of the arm rest itself as much as it is a result of the whole console wobbling a bit. Height is perfect for me (I'm 6' exactly) to rest my arm on, but I do wish that the rest extended 2-3 more inches out over the parking break area. All-in-all, a nice product.
