High-competitiveness of medical schools is driving many students in the path of depression and at times suicidal ideation.
A recent study is shedding light on the reason nearsightedness has become so widespread among young adults. Hint: It has to do with modern living.
Researchers from the University of Texas at El Paso studied fourth and fifth grade children to see how air pollution affected their school work. Even after accounting for other possible contributors, they found that children exposed to higher concentrations had lower GPAs.
It turns out that children who don't like school aren't merely lazy, but could blame their lack of interest on the genes inherited from their parents, according to new research.
