A team from the University of Helsinki looked at nearly 280,000 youngsters born in Finland between 1995 and 2000. Around one in 20 were born through IVF, artificial insemination and ovulation induction — known as medically assisted reproduction (MAR). While the group scored higher in school tests and were less likely to drop out of high school, they were also one per cent more likely to suffer mental health problems.

The best sleeping position to prevent Alzheimer’s, ALS and Parkinson’s, according to new study 

On your back, face down, on the side—when you’re napping or going to bed for the night, what position do you tend to sleep in?  A pre-clinical study suggests how we sleep, especially if it’s in a lateral position (also known as side-sleeping), can help flush out waste in the brain as we sleep.
