A new study by University of Utah sociologist Nick Wolfinger and a colleague from the University of Virginia reveals that Republicans tend to be happier in their marriages than Democrats, and are less likely to be divorced. Wolfinger and W. Bradford Wilcox, a sociologist at the University of Virginia, published the study Monday in Family Studies: The Blog of the Institute for Family Studies. Titled “Red Families vs. Blue Families: Which are Happier?,” the findings add to an ongoing debate over which set of political ideals help to lead people to a happy life, said Wolfinger.

Marriage Can Lead to Dramatic Reduction in Heavy Drinking in Young Adults

Research on alcohol-use disorders consistently shows problem drinking decreases as we age. Now, researchers collaborating between the University of Missouri and Arizona State University have found evidence that marriage can cause dramatic drinking reductions even among people with severe drinking problems. Scientists believe findings could help improve clinical efforts to help these people, inform public health policy changes and lead to more targeted interventions for young adult problem drinkers.

Genetic Tug of War in the Brain Influences Behavior

Researchers at the University of Utah School of Medicine report that a nuanced, targeted version of parental control over gene expression, is the method of choice over classic genomic imprinting. Published in Cell Reports, so-called noncanonical imprinting is particularly prevalent in the brain, and skews the genetic message in subpopulations of cells so that mom, or dad, has a stronger say. The mechanism can influence offspring behavior, and because it is observed more frequently than classic imprinting, appears to be preferred.

NUS Team Discovers Novel Way of Protecting Male Reproductive Cells and Hails New Approach to Addressing Male Infertility

A team of researchers from the National University of Singapore’s (NUS) Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine has demonstrated for the first time that hydrogen sulphide (H2S), when applied exogenously, could protect testicular germ cells, which are male reproductive cells, against heat-induced injury, which is one of the major causes of male infertility. The findings may provide a new approach to treating male infertility.

Do Sex and Violence Sell? Maybe Not, Says New Study

Advertisers hoping to sway consumers might want to rethink running spots within media with violent or sexual themes, and might do better if the ads themselves have a G-rating, according to a study published by the American Psychological Association. Instead, violent and sexual media content may impair advertising’s effectiveness and ultimately deter purchasing, the research found.
