Study: Female Smokers Starting Early, Less Likely to Quit


New research shows female smokers are now just as likely to die of a tobacco-related disease as male smokers.

In the past, men were more likely to die from smoking because they tended to start at a younger age and smoke more heavily.

But researchers have found women are now starting earlier, too, and were less likely to quit smoking than men.

Researchers say people who quit smoking by age 64 can gain at least four years of life.



New research shows more than two-thirds of college students think they're good at multi-tasking while driving -- a prospect that's pretty unlikely.

Researchers found that people who spend the most time talking on the phone or texting while driving are actually the worst multi-taskers.

The study shows people who multitask tend to do it because they're impulsive, overconfident and seek sensation, not because they're actually good at it.

Many states and communities have bans on texting or talking on the phone while driving, because so many studies have show it's unsafe.
