Are drugs used to treat the flu really worth taking and is procrastination genetic? Melisa Raney has these stories and more in today's Health Minute. Drugs that fight the flu may not work as well as the government thought when it stockpiled them in case of a flu pandemic. A new study by a non-profit network of health practitioners, researchers and patient advocates finds Tamiflu and another influenza drug, Relenza, do not reduce the rate of serious flu complications. They do, however, stop adult symptoms about a half day earlier compared to no treatment. Putting things off until the last minute, may not be something you can completely control. Researchers at the University of Colorado at Boulder say procrastination is in the genes. They studied 191 identical twins and 166 fraternal twins. The twins were surveyed on their ability to set and maintain goals, propensity to procrastinate and impulsivity. Based on the behavioral similarities, the results showed procrastination can be genetic. One more reason to cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze. A new study from M-I-T finds coughs and sneezes create gas clouds that travel between five and 200 times farther than originally thought. Scientists say this could spread disease well beyond just a person's immediate area.
