ABSTRACT
The article presents several health and psychology research news briefs. A study found children with a lack of self-control had a three-time greater chance of multiple health and financial problems by adulthood. Studies have clarified the risk tobacco use has on increased breast cancer occurrence due to its ability to block estrogen. High-efficiency particle air filters can reduce inflammation markers in blood by 33 percent and improve the functioning of vessel cells.
