CDC finds earlier sex, declining use of family planning services
Modern Healthcare
The Centers for Disease Control reports use of a number of family planning services by women in their prime child-bearing years dropped across the board in the late 2000s even as the median age for beginning sexual activity dropped to just past 17. Among the 62 million women ages 15 to 44, 70 percent used family planning services such as birth control, pregnancy tests and emergency contraception, down from 73 percent in 2002, according to the latest National Survey of Family Growth. Also falling were use of birth control, birth control counseling and use of the cervical cancer screening Pap test.

Scientists grow mini brains from stem cells
CNN
Researchers have taken another important step forward by growing mini brains from programmable stem cells. They're not actually functioning brains — in the same way that a car with the engine on its roof or wheels on its hood isn't a drivable vehicle – but the parts are there, and that's an important scientific advancement, according to Juergen Knoblich, senior author of a new study on using stem cells to grow brain tissue.

Stopping cancer in its tracks?
North Carolina State University via Medical Xpress
We've come a long way in cancer treatments — we have powerful, effective drugs for many types of cancer and we're moving toward ever more specific, less invasive therapies.
