Baby boom or bust

As fertility rates generally decline, researchers are using 2024 data to project world population trends for the year 2100. A new study estimates that by 2050, 155 of 204 countries territories – or 76% of nations on earth – will fall below the total fertility rate needed to sustain long-term replacement of the population. An accompanying news release has more details.

Princess Kate and cancer

Catherine, Princess of Wales, is undergoing chemotherapy to fight cancer that was found after her major abdominal surgery in January. Among numerous news reports, you can hear it in her own words in this video statement published on social media website X, formerly Twitter.

Avocados and patient diet

If an apple a day keeps the doctor away, what does an avocado a day do? It turns out it the nutrient-dense tropical fruit may help patients adhere to healthy dietary guidelines, according to a new study and accompanying news release.
