Using behavior and relaxation techniques could help children who suffer from migraines.

A new study from Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center looked at 135 children with chronic migraines.
 
Researchers found children who received cognitive behavior therapy had fewer days with headaches who just received education about the pain.
 
Diabetes Risk
 
Scientists from the United States and Mexico have discovered a new genetic clue that could  determine if a person is at risk for type 2 diabetes.
 
People who have the newly identified gene are 25 percent more likely to develop diabetes and people who inherited the gene from both parents are 50 percent more likely.
 
Scientists believe the gene might explain why Mexican and other Latin American populations are at greater risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
 
No Hangovers?
 
Is there a way to avoid a hangover this holiday season? Moderation might be the key.
 
Evidence suggests five to seven drinks for men and three to five drinks for women will almost always mean a hangover.
 
An ingredient found in many dark liquors could also increase the frequency and severity of hangovers.
