March 8 (UPI) -- All 28 members of the United States women's national team are plaintiffs in a gender discrimination suit filed Friday against the United States Soccer Federation -- on International Women's Day. The filing comes just three months before the team is to begin its title defense at the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup in France.

Men's bodies may respond better to low-calorie diets than women's, a new study showed. A study in Denmark recruited more than 2,000 people who had pre-diabetes -- meaning high blood sugar, but not yet diabetes -- to look at how low-calorie diets worked for them. In the study, researchers from the University of Copenhagen found that men benefitted in more ways from the reduced calorie counts, and not just in the numbers on the scale. "Despite adjusting for the differences in weight loss, it appears that men benefited more from the intervention than women. Whether differences between genders persist in the long-term and whether we will need to design different interventions depending on gender will be interesting to follow," said lead author Dr. Pia Christensen, of the University of Copen...
