A new study questions whether C-Sections are really a best option and the flu is hitting young people especially hard this year. Shelby Lynn has the latest medical news in today's Health Minute. Should pregnant women have fewer C-Sections? A new report from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the Society for Maternal Fetal Medicine calls for new guidelines for the procedure. They say doctors should wait and let nature take its course because labor may take longer than initially thought. Doctors say the risks and benefits for a C-Section still need to be weighed, but, in most low-risk pregnancies, vaginal delivery is the way to go. Cesarean delivery poses greater risk for those women, especially related to future pregnancies. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says the flu is hitting your people harder this flu season. People between the ages of 18 and 64 represent 61-percent of all flu-related hospitalizations this season. That's a significant increase from previous years where that age group only accounted for 35-percent. Why this jump? Scientists say this group is more susceptible to one of the main flu strains this year, The CDC says getting a flu shot washing your hands is still the best way to prevent the flu.
