A national study on sex education conducted by Kaiser Family Foundation shows most parents want their kids to know the bare facts. 85% surveyed want the school to teach their kids how to use a condom. 84% want teachers to discuss other forms of birth control. 94% want sex education to deal with teen pressure to have sex. 79 % say their kids should discuss abortion and 76% even want sexual orientation discussed in school.

Parents say solid sex education can give teens something they may not be getting at home and clear up those popular misconceptions.

The study found that women who ate two to three slices of whole-grain bread daily were 30 percent to 40 percent less likely to have an ischemic (ihs-KEE'-mihk) stroke.
Those are strokes caused by blocked arteries in the brain.
