Today's Globe: loud lunch hour, fruit and nuts for hay fever, exercise for menopause, health accounts for women
An experiment to test just how loud is loud during lunch hour at Smith Leadership Academy in Dorchester surprised even Sharon G. Kujawa, the director of audiology at Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary.
Children who eat lots of grapes, oranges, and tomatoes are less likely to have hay fever, researchers found, suggesting that a Mediterranean diet may have health benefits for youngsters as well as adults.
A little exercise, even just a long walk, may go a long way toward helping women feel better while going through menopause, according a Penn State University study.
High-deductible health insurance plans favored by many employers often wind up being an unfair burden to women, a Harvard Medical School study says, largely because women need many routine medical exams that quickly add up.
