In a heartfelt post on social media Wednesday, Tori Foles said it happened after she suffered from pneumonia.

New research suggests that, as feared, the series caused a “suicide contagion” effect among young people.

An estimated 13% increase in suicide among children and teens, ages 10 to 19, occurred in the three months after the show’s release, the researchers found. This corresponds to 94 more suicides than would be expected, according to the study published Wednesday in the journal JAMA Psychiatry.

Alex Trebek has shared a hopeful health update.

The “Jeopardy!” host — who announced in March that he had been diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer — told People magazine he’s responding well to treatment.

The survival rate for those with Trebek’s kind of cancer is 9% and he said news that he may be beating the odds left him emotional.
