Does Stressing Out Cause Your Hair to Turn Grey?

Does Stressing Out Cause Your Hair to Turn Grey?

iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- Grey can be a difficult color to pull off especially when it’s on your head. So is the only way to avoid grey locks to live a life free of stress and strain?Not so fast. Each of us have two chemicals in our bodies: melanin, which is the pigment in our hair, and hydrogen peroxide. Early in life, it seems that melanin overpowers the hydrogen peroxide, allowing us to have a colorful head of hair.Later in life, though, the hydrogen peroxide seems to overtake the melanin, causing a loss of pigmentation and a greying of the hair.

“But in terms of stress causing grey hair, there is no scientific proof whatsoever,” Dr. Michael Stern, an Emergency Medicine Physician at New York Presbyterian Hospital, says.You may now resume your stress-filled lives without the added weight of worrying about hair color.

Andreas Seppi Ousts Roger Federer at Australian Open

Andreas Seppi Ousts Roger Federer at Australian Open

Comstock/Thinkstock(MELBOURNE, Australia) -- For the first time in over 12 years, Roger Federer will not be playing in the Australian Open semifinals after being upset by unseeded Andreas Seppi on Friday.

Federer didn't look like the dominant player we've grown accustomed to seeing as he fell 6-4, 7-6 (5), 4-6, 7-6 (5).

"The way he hits it you think, 'This can't possibly land in.' You kind of go and you're there and you're like, 'No, I'm going to let it go,'" the second-seeded Federer said. "As you're telling yourself that, you look behind you and you already know it's done."

The 43rd ranked Seppi advanced beyond the second round of the Australian Open just once in the previous nine years.

"I just tried to enjoy to play on the center court again, so I just tried to do my best," Seppi said. "It was one of my best matches, for sure, or else I couldn't win against Roger. It was fun to play in front of a full stadium."

This was Federer's earliest exit in Australia since 2001.

Braves Agree on One-Year Deal with Outfielder Jonny Gomes

Brian D. Kersey/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Atlanta Braves have signed veteran free agent outfielder Jonny Gomes to a one-year deal.

ESPN.com reports the deal is worth $4 million.

The 34-year-old Gomes spent last season with the Boston Red Sox and Oakland Athletics. In 112 games, Gomes hit .234 with six home runs and 37 RBIs.

During his 12-year career, Gomes has hit .244 with 155 home runs and 500 RBIs with the Tampa Bay Rays, Cincinnati Reds, Washington Nationals, Athletics, and Red Sox.

Gomes is expected to be in a platoon in left field with Zoilo Almonte. The rest of the outfield will be made up of Nick Markakis and B.J. Upton.

The Braves have remade their outfield this offseason. They traded outfielder Justin Upton to the San Diego Padres and Jason Heyward to the St. Louis Cardinals.

Deadline for ISIS Ransom Passes, but Fate of Captives Unknown

zabelin/iStock/Thinkstock(TOKYO) -- The deadline set by ISIS for a ransom payment has passed, leaving the fate of two Japanese captives unknown.The captors, specifically the ISIS fighter dubbed "Jihadi John" because of his British accent, gave the Japanese government 72 hours to pay a $200 million ransom earlier this week.The deadline expired in the early hours of Friday morning, but there have not yet been any public announcements from the captors about the fate of Kenji Goto and Haruna Yukawa.“The situation is dire, but the government is determined to continue its utmost efforts toward an early release of the hostages,” Japan’s chief cabinet secretary, Yoshihide Suga, said at a news conference in Japan Friday. "And Japan will continue to contribute to the international fight against terrorism."Goto's mother also made a plea for her son's safety during a news conference Friday in Japan, saying that he should be saved because he has a wife and 2-week-old baby.

Coroner Investigates Death of Girl Who Refused Chemotherapy

Coroner Investigates Death of Girl Who Refused Chemotherapy

Bhakpong/iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- The death of an 11-year-old girl who sparked headlines after her family agreed to let her stop chemotherapy will be investigated by a local coroner.Makayla Sault, a member of the First Nations tribe in Canada, died after suffering a stroke on Sunday, according to a family statement.Makayla’s case grabbed headlines after, at the girl's request, she stopped chemotherapy treatment for her acute lymphoblastic leukemia in May. The move led to the family being investigated by a division of Canada's Children’s Aid Society, which ultimately allowed the family to continue to care for Makayla without requiring the chemotherapy treatments.In a statement released this week, the girl's family blamed her death on the 12 weeks of chemotherapy she had undergone before she stopped treatment. The family said it was not the disease that killed Makayla, but rather the effects of the chemotherapy.“Makayla was on her way to wellness, bravely fighting toward holistic well-being after the harsh side effects that 12 weeks of chemotherapy inflicted on her body,” the family said in a statement. "Chemotherapy did irreversible damage to her heart and major organs. This was the cause of the stroke."McMaster Children's Hospital in Hamilton, Ontario, where Makayla was treated, said it had no comment on the claims in the family's statement. However, the hospital, part of the Hamilton Health Sciences family of hospitals, released its condolences for Makayla's family."Everyone who knew Makayla was touched by this remarkable girl," said the statement, signed by Peter Fitzgerald, the hospital's president. "Her loss is heart-breaking. Our deepest sympathy is extended to Makayla’s family.”Cheryl Mahyr, a spokeswoman for the office of the chief coroner in Ontario, told ABC News that there was an ongoing investigation into Makayla’s death, but that it was a routine investigation sparked by the earlier Children’s Aid Society probe.Brant Family and Children’s Services, the Children's Aid Society division that investigated the family, expressed its condolences in a statement issued after Makayla’s death."Makayla was a wonderful, loving child who eloquently exercised her indigenous rights as a First Nations person and those legal rights provided to her under Ontario’s Health Care Consent Act," the group’s statement read, in part. "The parents are a caring couple who loved their daughter deeply."Chief Bryan LaForme, a spokesman for Makayla's family, told ABC News that the girl did not have any signs of leukemia at the time of her death. He noted that it was Makayla, herself, who asked to stop treatment and that her family supported her decision.Dr. John Letterio, chief of pediatric hematology and oncology at University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital in Cleveland, said it was unlikely that chemotherapy drugs could have caused a stroke months after Makayla stopped treatment.“The drugs we use, literally thousands of patients have had these,” said Letterio, who did not treat Makayla. “One of the chemotherapy agents we use has the risk for some heart problems [but] it’s so very, very rare.”Letterio said the chance of complications would also be further reduced if Makayla was out of chemotherapy treatment for months.However, Letterio said if Makayla did have active leukemia disease, there’s a chance cardiac complications could occur.“Leukemia, in essence, goes everywhere the blood stream goes. Those cancer cells can accumulate,” said Letterio. “It could be a complication of her disease if it began to march along. It’s hard to tell.”Makayla’s death came a few months after an Ontario judge ruled on a similar case in which an unidentified girl, also part of the First Nations tribe, refused chemotherapy. In that case, the judge ruled the family of the girl would be allowed to pursue alternative treatment and stop chemotherapy in part because of their "aboriginal right."

Rosetta Probe Reveals New Facts About Comet 67P

Rosetta Probe Reveals New Facts About Comet 67P

ESA/Rosetta/MPS for OSIRIS Team MPS/UPD/LAM/IAA/SSO/INTA/UPM/DASP/IDA(NEW YORK) -- After a decade long journey to intercept a speeding comet, the real work is just beginning for the Rosetta probe.The spacecraft made history in November when it sent its Philae lander to the surface of 67P, a comet that is whizzing through space at speeds as fast as 80,000 miles per hour.After a less than ideal landing that included a few bounces, the Philae lander came to rest in an area where it could not get good, direct sunlight, forcing the European Space Agency to rely on batteries that have since been depleted.Since then, the Rosetta probe has continued to orbit the 2.5-mile wide comet, collecting data and making observations to send back to the team on Earth.Several reports published in the journal Science on Thursday shed new light on the comet's composition and behavior as it continues to approach the sun.The rubber-duck shaped planet was leaking 1.2 liters of water per second into space through the "neck" area of the comet in August. Researchers estimate the rate has increased since Philae landed in November.Samuel Gulkis, the principal investigator at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, who worked on Rosetta's instruments, said the comet is incredibly active."That situation may be changing now that the comet is getting warmer," Gulkis said.Perhaps the most exciting discovery: Rosetta has the building blocks of life.Researchers expected to find organic molecules in the comet's halo, however "the molecules Rosetta has detected are more complex than those seen on other comet," they wrote.The comet also emits a diverse variety of gases in certain areas, while other parts of the oddly shaped mass only leak water.Gulkis said there's plenty more to learn as Rosetta continues its "up close and personal" orbit around 67P.Rosetta "has provided us with an unprecedented opportunity to see how comets transform from cold, icy bodies to active objects spewing out gas and dust as they get closer to the sun," he said.

Why Google’s Eric Schmidt Believes the Internet Will Disappear

Why Google’s Eric Schmidt Believes the Internet Will Disappear

Miguel Villagran/Getty Images(DAVOS, Switzerland) -- Google executive chairman Eric Schmidt has a jarring prediction for the future of the Internet."The Internet will disappear," Schmidt said during a panel at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland on Thursday, where the world's brain trust has gathered to discuss everything from technology to the economy.The comment made plenty of heads spin.Schmidt expanded on his comments, saying that the Internet will become so seamlessly integrated into our daily lives that it will simply fade into the background.As wearables gain traction and our homes become smarter and more connected, Schmidt sees a future where the Internet is all around us."It will be part of your presence all the time," Schmidt said, according to CNET. "Imagine you walk into a room, and the room is dynamic. And with your permission and all of that, you are interacting with the things going on in the room."

Oil Prices Spike on News of King Abdullah’s Death

Oil Prices Spike on News of King Abdullah’s Death

Stockbyte/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- Following the news of King Abdullah’s death on Thursday, crude oil spiked 2.5 percent.Oil prices have fallen by half in the past year, dropping 3 percent earlier on Thursday before the death of the 90-year-old leader of Saudi Arabia was announced.Saudi Arabia is now the world’s second-largest energy producer, behind the U.S., which became No. 1 this year. The Saudis have a great amount of control over where world energy prices go. They’ve been continuing to produce large amounts of oil, even as prices are tanking, which in turn has driven prices lower.Many analysts think King Abdullah’s half-brother and successor, Price Salman, will keep the same policies in place, but the market is reacting anyway, expecting him to face growing pressure.Why would the Saudi’s intentionally drive oil prices lower when oil is fundamental to Saudi Arabia’s economy?Reasons might include to weaken Iran and to drive some of the competition out of business.Still it’s a risky proposition for Saudi Arabia’s economy. Some 80 percent of government revenue and 40 percent of GDP come from oil. And it’s risky for its people, who rely on the government to subsidize education, healthcare, etc., and provide jobs.Saudi Arabia is forecasting its biggest deficit ever this year, $39 billion -- and it’s because of oil.

‘Six Pack’ Mom Reacts to Uproar over Her Abs-Baring Photo

‘Six Pack’ Mom Reacts to Uproar over Her Abs-Baring Photo

File photo. (Artem_Furman/iStock/Thinkstock)(NEW YORK) -- When Abby Pell posted a photo on Instagram showing her slim belly and toned, defined abs, she never expected the uproar that would erupt.In the photo, Pell, 33, a nutritionist and fitness competitor, posed next to her 6-year-old daughter, who pointed to her mother’s bared abs with a shocked look on her face. The photo’s caption read: “I have a kid, a six pack and no excuse.”“I just thought it would be funny,” the British woman said.Not everyone laughed. In fact, many people accused her of fat shaming other mothers and setting a bad example for her daughter, Bella.One commenter wrote: "She's teaching her kid that anyone who doesn't conform has no excuse, they're just lazy.”But many others have defended Pell, including one who wrote: “U have inspired me to work harder at the gym."Now, Pell, of West Sussex, England, is explaining herself. She said she simply wanted to motivate other mothers.“My message was about having a choice, and showing people that it can be achieved if you want to achieve it, and just by leading by example,” she told ABC News.The reaction to Pell’s photo was similar to the backlash against Maria Kang in 2013, when she posted a photo of her slim and toned figure with her three young sons. Her photo caption was “What’s your excuse?”Kang, too, said she wanted to encourage other women. She said she was an example of a mother who was healthy and could be a positive role model to other mothers.Still, some say photos like the ones Pell and Kang posted can send a far different message.“Let’s give props to this person who obviously is in great shape,” said ABC News’ Dr. Jennifer Ashton. "But let’s also recognize that shaming people is usually not a powerful motivational tool. And I think that, certainly, when you’re talking about moms bouncing back from pregnancy, we have enough pressure on us as mothers."

Dustin Diamond Pleads Not Guilty in Bar Stabbing Incident

Ozaukee County Sheriff's Office(OZAUKEE COUNTY, Wis.) — Dustin Diamond pleaded not guilty Thursday to charges that he stabbed a man in a Wisconsin bar altercation last month.The former Saved By the Bell actor, 38, appeared in Ozaukee County Circuit Court, along with his fiancée Amanda Schultz, to plead not guilty to second-degree reckless endangering safety, disorderly conduct, and carrying a concealed weapon, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.Diamond was arrested on Dec. 26 after officers responded late the night before to the Grand Ave. Saloon regarding reports Diamond "had stabbed another male patron and left the bar," police told ABC last month.A conviction on the recklessly endangering safety charge could result in up to 10 years in jail for Diamond, according to documents obtained by ABC News.Diamond told police that at the bar, "there was a group of intoxicated people being rude and insulting," according to court papers. After an altercation that his fiancée had with another woman, Diamond told police that he saw her bleeding, then he intervened. He did not intentionally stab the man at the bar, but "chaos broke out and people were grabbing at him," a District Attorney's report added.During questioning, according to police, Diamond said that he was holding a knife or a pen during the altercation.Police also spoke with witnesses, the victim and a bartender at the Saloon, according to court papers. The victim, who told police he never saw the knife, suffered wounds that were not life-threatening."Dustin continues to believe the legal process will exonerate him and he is undaunted by the work that lies ahead," Diamond's attorney, Thomas Alberti, told reporters after the hearing.

Women of Child-Bearing Age Should Avoid Taking Addictive Painkillers

Women of Child-Bearing Age Should Avoid Taking Addictive Painkillers

iStock/Thinkstock(ATLANTA) — Prescription painkillers containing highly addictive opioids that can cause birth defects and other serious problems in early pregnancy are taken by more than a quarter of U.S. women of child-bearing age.The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released this information Thursday as a warning to women who are thinking about having a child or might be in the early stages of being pregnant.Although much has been reported about the dramatic increase of overdoses from these medications, this is the first time the CDC has focused on the dangers Vicodin, Oxycontin and other drugs pose to women between the ages of 15 and 44.While women might stop taking opioid painkillers after becoming pregnant, the problem is that they might not know about their condition until after the first few weeks, especially if their pregnancy was unplanned as about half are in the U.S.These drugs can affect the brain and spine of the fetus as well as a pregnant woman's heart and abdominal wall.In terms of prescription use by women, the rate were highest in the South and lowest in the Northeast. Also, white women are one-and-a-half times more likely to take opioids than black or Hispanic women.

House Passes Watered-Down Anti-Abortion Bill

House Passes Watered-Down Anti-Abortion Bill

Architect of the Capitol(WASHINGTON) — As the annual March for Life event took place in Washington Thursday, House Republican lawmakers passed pro-life legislation that was more limited in scope than was previously intended.The bill, which was approved by a vote of 239-to-179, would cut taxpayer funding for abortions.However, due to a rebellion by a group of Republican women, the House leadership changed course and opted not to bring up a measure further limiting abortions after 20 weeks.The bill yanked from the floor schedule, known as the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, would have rolled back the current policy from 24 weeks to 20 weeks.However, many GOP women, including North Carolina Republican Renee Ellmers, opposed a provision in the bill that requires rape victims to report the incident to authorities in order to get an abortion.
