More people are trying natural approaches to thyroid problems, but they should proceed with caution (and with the help of a doctor).

Parents, do you battle your kids over saying no to junk food in the checkout aisle? I'm looking for input for my next story.

The long-term effects of war are longer than many realize.
A new study has found that some Vietnam veterans still have symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) decades after the end of that divisive war.

Who is to blame for miscommunication of science? Journalists or the scientists who talk about their research?

Almost 140,000 Americans are on prescription medications that cost more than $100,000 per year. Not all of them have adequate health insurance coverage.
Specialty drugs for diseases like cancer and hepatitis C are spurring a jump in the number of people with very high prescription drug costs, along with an increase in financial difficulties.

It's good to see some small towns taking steps to protect endangered species. Sadly, my town (Sauble Beach) undid years of hard work for the environment.
Kincardine has the greenlight to fly the Blue Flag at Station Beach this summer, while neighbouring Sauble Beach was ordered last week to remove the international symbol of responsible beach management.

Sauble Beach: former home of the endangered piping plover.

The town council has "been provided with a lot of scientific evidence and advice from environmental experts, the [Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry], and [Environmental Defence Canada], and we urged them to make the right decision. Instead they decided to vote in favour of destroying dune habitat and habitat for endangered species."

Food advocacy group +CSPI is calling on stores to ditch the candy at the checkout. How often do you give in to these last-minute sweet buys?

Choosing Wisely encourages patients to ask doctors if tests and treatments are really needed, and whether they are backed by evidence.

#newborns #NICU #ChoosingWisely  
As part of the Choosing Wisely campaign, the American Academy of Pediatrics released a list of five tests and treatments that should not be routinely done on newborns.

The Internet makes it easier for small towns to make the news, especially over controversial topics like breastfeeding in public.
Two women claim they were asked to leave an Ontario restaurant for breastfeeding a baby, but amid the resulting storm of criticism online, the eatery insists the trouble was caused by an unruly customer.

The Jeb Bush 10-hour clock. For all those days when your boss asks you to work longer hours.
