More than one out of every five high school girls report being physically or sexually assaulted by someone they dated.

One out of ten high school boys says the same thing.

These numbers were gathered after the Centers for Disease Control surveyed nearly 10,000 high school students.

Researchers say teenagers who experience dating violence are at a much higher risk for developing a variety of serious problems like considering suicide, fighting, using drugs and alcohol or carrying a concealed weapon.

It’s also possible children who are depressed may be more likely to fall into abusive relationships.

The CDC says the majority of people who have developed measles were not vaccinated.

Eating nuts, including peanuts and peanut butter, may help you live longer.

Researchers studied the diets of more than 200,000 people and found nut consumption was linked to a lower risk of premature death from heart disease and other causes.

Analysts say the findings support previous evidence on the heart-healthy benefits of nuts.
