The Food and Drug Administration will show adolescents fake websites the agency will create for fictitious prescription drugs that treat acne or ADHD and examine how the teens respond compared with parents and young adults.

Research may prompt more people to act earlier to tackle wrinkles
The Harley Medical Group
Wrinkles may be genetic, according to findings of a recent Swedish survey. According to the researchers, signs of age don't just come from damage to our own DNA, but also to the DNA we inherit from our mothers. Leading scientific journal Nature published the findings, which came from an in-depth study into how mitochondria, or the power sources for the cells in the human body, degenerate and set off the body's aging process. As a result, medical professionals may one day gain a better understanding of that process and to enable them to develop more effective anti-aging treatments.

Get the best skin of your life
Do injectables slow down the aging process — or just minimize the signs we already see? Doctors insist they actually slow it down. Injectable fillers that plump or add volume, such as Restylane or Juvéderm, inflate a problem area like deep wrinkles or sunken skin, keeping fine lines from turning into deep grooves and minimizing sagging and jowling.

The Philippine STAR
