- Angels have no wings, says Catholic 'angelologist'
Angels exist but do not have wings and are more like shards of light, at least according to a top Catholic Church "angelologist" who says the heavenly beings are now back in vogue thanks to New Age religions. "I think there is a re-discovery of angels in Christianity," Father Renzo Lavatori told AFP on the sidelines of a conference on angels in a lavishly-frescoed Renaissance palace in Rome. The senior clergyman was taking part in a debate this week on angelic art by the Fondazione Archivio Storico, an Italian art foundation, and was held in the Vatican-owned Palazzo della Cancelleria. Professor Valerio Massimo Manfredi, an art historian taking part in the conference, said the first mention of the word "angelos" came from the Mycenaean civilization in Greece more than 3,000 years ago.

- Aspirin risks may outweigh benefits in healthy adults
By Kathleen Raven NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Healthy adults who take daily aspirin to stave off heart disease may be inviting more harm than benefit, according to a new review of past studies. Adults face a crush of conflicting health messages about aspirin and the role it plays as a preventive medicine. "Too many healthy people think that aspirin will prevent heart attacks and cancer," said Dr. Peter Sandercock of the Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland. Sandercock has extensive research experience in this subject, but was not involved in the current study.
