Children's Health: Brain anatomy, Academic achievement, and family income ♦ Develop healthy eating habits in a child ♦ Many teens try e-cigs, but few become regular users

Many teens try e-cigs, but few become regular users  E-cigarettes are popular with teens, including those who have never smoked, but few of those who try them become regular users, while most of those who do so are also smokers. The use of e-cigarettes at least once was more common than having smoked a conventional cigarette among all age groups, except the oldest (15-16 year olds).

Improvement in teacher-rated anxiety and social withdrawal also contributed to improvements in parent-rated disruptive behavior. Children who showed reduced anxiety also showed less disruptive behavior
Study links brain anatomy, academic achievement, and family income Many years of research have shown that for students from lower-income families, standardized test scores and other measures of academic success tend to lag behind those of wealthier students. After imaging the brains of high- and low-income students, they found that the higher-income students had thicker brain cortex in areas associated with visual perception and knowledge accumulation. These differences correlated with one measure of academic achievement -- performance on standardized tests
