Today's Globe: naps, stents, Jon Lester
Could midday napping save your life? Researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health and in Athens reported that Greeks who took regular 30-minute naps were 37 percent less likely to die of heart disease over a six-year period than those who never napped.
Studies show drug-coated heart stents are no better at preventing heart attacks and death than the older, cheaper devices they replaced, and in some cases may be slightly worse.
Jon Lester doesn't look any different from the Red Sox pitcher who was winning a bunch of games as a rookie last season until a doctor discovered that he had a rare form of blood cancer known as anaplastic large cell lymphoma.
