MedMinute: Link between moms with migraines, babies with colic

Local News

A new study finds mothers who have frequent migraines were more likely to have babies with colic. Researchers from the University of California said the risk was especially high if the mother had a headache 15 or more days a month. Colic is defined as excessive crying in otherwise healthy infants.

New findings suggest a possible link between sugary drinks and cancer. Researchers in France found that adding about a half cup more of sugary drinks to a person’s diet each day increased the person’s overall risk of cancer by 18%. The risk of breast cancer increased by 22%.

New research found no connection between mothers who received the flu vaccine while pregnant and health problems later on in their children. Researchers in the U.S. and Canada followed the children until age five and found no elevated risk for cancer, infections or chronic diseases.
