A study from the National Institutes of Health last month showed women who use chemical hair relaxers or straighteners may have a higher risk of the cancer.
The survey found that 11% of young adults reported using marijuana on a daily basis in 2021 and 43% had used it in the past year. About 8% of young adults reported using substances such as LSD, PCP and psychedelic mushrooms in the past year, up from just 3% in 2011.
After decades of scientists basically using male laboratory animals for medical research, the National Institutes of Health is ending the gender bias practice in research. The shift, as published in the journal Nature, should help minimize side effects and dosage miscalculations not discovered until after products hit the market.
