Men who drink several cups of tea a day for decades have a higher risk of prostate cancer, researchers in Scotland say.

Dr. Kashif Shafique of the Institute of Health & Wellbeing at the University of Glasgow and colleagues found those who drank more than seven cups of tea per day for years had a 50 percent higher risk of developing prostate cancer compared with non-tea drinkers or those drinking less than four cups per day. "Most previous research has shown either no relationship with prostate cancer for black tea or some preventive effect of green tea," Shafique, the study leader, said in a statement. "We don't know whether tea itself is a risk factor or if tea drinkers are generally healthier and live to an older age when prostate cancer is more common anyway."

Pests are adapting to genetically modified crops in unexpected ways, U.S. researchers say, showing the importance of closely monitoring biotech crops.

To decrease the need for insecticides that can harm animals other than the target pests, cotton and corn have been genetically engineered to produce toxins derived from the bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis, or Bt, which kill certain insect pests but are harmless to most other creatures including people. However, scientists say, initially rare genetic mutations that confer resistance to Bt toxins are becoming more common as a growing number of pest populations adapt to Bt crops.

Minnesota Attorney General Lori Swanson says a collection agency, Accretive Health, threatened to withhold a woman's baby unless she prepaid for her delivery.

The incident was one of a dozen complaints amended to Swanson's suit against the agency, filed Tuesday. Swanson accuses Accretive of sending agents to patients' bedsides in hospitals to ask them to pay their bills, often misleading them into thinking they needed to pay for treatment before it could be administered. In one case, Swanson alleged a doctor had to chase a debt collector out of an emergency room.

A sudden rise in the number of babies born with microcephaly, or underdeveloped brains and skulls, has forced Brazil to warn hopeful mothers to put off their pregnancy plans to avoid the birth defect.

Health authorities are investigating more than 3,000 suspected cases of microcephaly and 38 deaths of infants that occurred in 2015. In 2014, the country saw only 147 cases of microcephaly. In November, Brazil declared a nationwide public health emergency, calling it an "unprecedented situation, unprecedented in world scientific research", to dedicate resources to investigating the causes of the rise.
