Study: Doctors Should Wait Before Performing C-sections


 New recommendations say doctors should wait longer before performing most C-sections.

This new report comes from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, and the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine.

 It says doctors should wait and let labor happen without surgical intervention -- even if it takes longer than initially thought.

 Doctors say the risks and benefits for a C-section still need to be weighed, but in most low-risk pregnancies, vaginal delivery is better.

 Expert say cesarean delivery poses greater risk for women -- especially related to future pregnancies.

New research shows having the drinking age at 21 saves lives.

Researchers looked at several studies done since 2006. They found that a drinking age of 21 meant fewer young people died in drunk driving crashes.

It also lowered incidences of binge drinking, dating violence, unsafe sex, and suicide in young people.

Studies have also shown that in college towns, student drinking declines when those communities boost enforcement of the drinking age and warn students about the crackdown.

The study was published in the Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs.
