How an erection drug could cure heart failure

Viagra pills

The anti-impotence drug Cialis could be used to cure heart failure, according to new research.

The erectile dysfunction drug Tadalafil, which is similar to Viagra and sold under the brand name Cialis, was found to slow and even reverse the progression of the condition in sheep by researchers at the University of Manchester.

The British Heart Foundation-funded study is a breakthrough in the hunt to cure the disease which kills 66,000 Britons each year.

Surefire signs your child is ready to stop napping

According to a midwife and child health nurse Jane Barry, there are three clear signs your kid is ready to stop daytime sleeps. Ignore them at your peril.

1. It is nap time but your child is really alert.
2. Bedtime is way way later than normal.
3. You have accidentally "missed" the afternoon nap...and there is no tantrum

Exceptions to the rule …

As we know, every child is different so there are a few exceptions to this rule of three.

Being a chatterbox around your children 'boosts their IQ and increases their cognitive skills

Talking and reading to toddlers could boost their intelligence

Being a chatterbox could boost your child's intelligence, according to new research.

It found youngsters exposed to large amounts of speech by their parents had higher IQs and better cognitive skills.

The children, aged two to four, also tended to have better non-verbal skills such as reasoning, numeracy and shape awareness.

Additionally, the study found children who interacted with adults that used a diverse vocabulary knew a greater variety of words themselves.
