WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - A new study in the Journal Pediatrics reveals a racial disparity in teen suicide attempts.

In 2017, researchers found more than 100,000 black teens between the ages of 12 to 18 went to the ER after trying to harm themselves, while other groups saw a decline.

Traumatic brain injuries

Researchers in New York are taking a closer look at traumatic brain injuries such as concussions.

They found greater signs of blood vessel damage, rather than nerve damage, in deceased brain-injury patients.

Causes of Acne

Researchers in Spain have identified some underlying causes of acne.

According to their study, acne sufferers consumed more sweets, sodas, and chocolate in their diet than people with clearer skin.
