Research published in separate medical journals this week suggests conflicting findings in relation to caffeine and health. One of these claims that caffeine may lower the risk of ovarian cancer. However, the other study shows that it doubles the chances of miscarriage. What both studies agree on is that a person's health may be directly impacted by the amount of caffeine he or she consumes. Shelley Tworoger of Harvard Medical School wrote on Tuesday, "With regard to caffeine and...

Energy drinks like Red Bull, Red Devil and Sobe "No Fear" typically contain a mix of...

The findings, according to researchers, suggest that a genetic vulnerability...
