    2. HPV vaccine may also help women who already have the virus
    Researchers from the U.S. National Cancer Institute found that the HPV vaccine, which protects against cervical, anal, and oral infections, may also help prevent future infections for some women who are already diagnosed with such illnesses. It may stop the virus from popping up in different areas over time. HPV or the human papillomavirus is the most common sexually-transmitted disease in America, and can lead to genital warts and cancer. The current U.S. federal guidelines recommend that girls as early as age 11 or 12 get it. (nydailynews.com)

    4. Probiotics could help fight depression
    New research has found that eating yogurt not only is a great source of calcium but is also a good pick-me-upper. Researchers from the Leiden Institute for Brain and Cognition in the Netherlands discovered that live probiotics or microorganisms in yogurt can reduce the feelings of depression.

    Although the former beauty queen has yet to file a formal complaint against Dody Puno, the father of her 11-year-old son Cody, she’s not giving up her son’s rights just yet. Dody reportedly has stopped giving financial support for Cody and has refused to communicate with her or Cody. Alma said, “I don’t have any problems being a single mom… I’m an interior designer now, aside from being an actress ... pero hindi naman ibig sabihin nun na kailangan nang huminto ng father ng anak ko... to stop supporting his son.” (pep.ph)
