Weight Loss Scams [Video]

Weight Loss Scams byline AARP Nearly half of American adults and well over half of American women are trying to lose weight, according to a 2018 study by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Those figures fuel a $70 billion weight-loss industry — and a widespread trade in dubious products that will reduce only your bank account. Diet scams rank No. 1 among health care frauds reported to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), with on-the-make marketers deploying a variety of tricks to get people to purchase their wares. Some create websites that look like those of legitimate magazines and news organizations and fill them with phony articles claiming that celebrities have achieved amazing results from their products. The FTC recently obtained a $500,000...

FDA Launches “Remove the Risk” Campaign for Safe Opioid Removal

In 2017, retail pharmacies dispensed more than 191 million opioid prescriptions to almost 60 million patients, according to a press release by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).  And as many as 90% of these patients reported not finishing what was prescribed to them – potentially leaving millions of unused prescription opioids in medicine cabinets and elsewhere in US homes.  Perhaps unsurprisingly, 47,600 people died from an overdose involving opioids that same year. “Far too many Americans, both teens and adults, are gaining access to opioids for the first time from the medicine cabinets of their parents, relatives and friends,” said Douglas Throckmorton, M.D., deputy director of regulatory programs in the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research.  “Millions of un...

Everyone in my family now looks forward to game night thanks to Jackbox

Source: Jeramy Johnson / Android Central If the past few months of social distancing and quarantine have taught this introvert anything, it's that I really miss get-togethers with friends and family. Even silly things like Friday night trivia at a local bar or playing Cards Against Humanity with friends in the neighborhood sound like extravagant getaways to me right now. My family has been pretty good about making time for fun when we can during this gloomy period, and we've even cracked open the occasional old board game like Monopoly or Sorry a few times. Still, as classic as those games are, they've just become tired. Since we've all been cooped up working from home or preparing for final exams, we just want something fun, fresh, and not overly mentally taxing to entertain us. Thankful...

TV cops know their job is changing. Some are more ready than others.

Cops on television have a duty. Yes, actors report to dressing rooms and not crime scenes — and sure, they stop protecting and serving the moment their directors yell “cut.” But for hundreds of millions of viewers around the globe, these “officers” are trusted guides to understanding American justice, which they roll out as an action-packed, morally-right freight train night after night. Only now, it might be coming off the rails. As protests against police brutality and systemic racism continue across the United States, TV cops and their fictional precincts have come under fire. From half-joking cries to defund the PAW Patrol to serious reflections on Hollywood’s historic whiteness, entertainment fans and professionals are using their platforms to amplify the Black Lives Matter movement. ...

Teens Drug and Alcohol Rehab [Video]

Drug and Alcohol Rehab for Teens Reviewed by Dr. Keerthy Sunder, MD, DFAPA Being a teenager isn’t easy. Teen years may involve personal exploration and self-discovery, but they also mark the awkward but necessary transition from adolescence to adulthood. During this journey, teens are faced with more responsibilities, more decision-making, and more pressure to succeed than ever before. It comes an as little surprise, then, that teens are statistically more likely than the general population to dabble in drug and alcohol use. Teenagers in the U.S. have been experimenting with drugs and alcohol for decades. In fact, many people view experimentation as a right of passage for young adults. However, drug use is dangerous for teenagers. Teens who use drugs have a higher likeli...
