UNDATED (WHDH) - New research revealed that children with irritable bowel syndrome exhibit higher rates of Celiac disease.

A study found that more than 4 percent of those with IBS tested positive for Celiac, which is four times higher than the general pediatric population.

Another study found that blood flow to the brain may be linked to cognitive decline.

Researchers discovered patients with blockages in the carotid artery performed significantly worse on thinking and memory tests.
