  • The issue of lacking reform for pain drug abuse. When the Drug Enforcement Administration announced last year that pharmacies nationwide could accept and destroy customers’ unwanted prescription drugs, experts in substance abuse called it a significant step toward easing the painkiller and heroin epidemic.

  • One year later, however, the response has been insignificant, dismaying optimists and leaving communities searching for other strategies. Only about 1 percent of American pharmacies have set up disposal programs, with none of those belonging to the two largest chains, CVS and Walgreens, which have balked at the cost and security risks, according to government and industry data. Countless unused prescription pills like oxycodone and Xanax linger in household medicine cabinets, in easy reach of addicted adults and experimenting adolescents. People who develop painkiller dependencies often move on to heroin, which is considerably cheaper and provides a stronger high. About 23,000 Americans died of prescription-drug overdoses in 2013, more than twice the number from 2001, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse.

  • According to a new study done in mice and in cultured human cancer cells, antioxidants may actually speed up the spread of the potentially deadly skin cancer melanoma. Is this medical propaganda, or is there some truth to this claim?

  • A new study has shown that polybrominated diphenyl ethers, commonly used as fire retardants in many consumer goods, has now been associated with attention problems in 3-7-year-olds after prenatal exposure to the product.

  • Lastly RSB will get Buttar’s take on the 3rd generation effects study as we end this epic hour of learning with a bang!
