Fountain of youth may be available soon in pill form! The Wall Street Journal reports that scientists at Albert Einstein Institute for Aging Research will begin clinical trials involving seniors and  the drug metformin. The drug is already used to treat type II diabetes, and is thought to have the potential to delay aging and some of the most serious diseases associated with aging. Seniors have begun contacting the Institute and pleading to be included in the study that will begin next year.

Once again, consumers have been stricken with ecoli caused by chicken contaminated by ecoli bacteria. Yesterday, Costco rotisserie chicken salad was identified as the source of an ecoli outbreak in 7 western states that left 5 people hospitalized and 2 with hemolytic uremic kidney failure. While the beef industry was forced to adopt a "zero tolerance" for e coli bacteria years ago after the deadly Jack in the Box ecoli outbreak, the poultry industry has never been required to develop a similar policy for poultry products. That policy needs to be revisited.

The Attorney General (AG) offices of New Hampshire and Vermont have issued warnings to recent bankruptcy filers of a telephone scam. Scammers have been obtaining consumer's contact information from bankruptcy court public files and then call posing as the filer's law office. The scammers use software that alters the person's caller ID system to make it appear the call is actually coming from their lawyer's office and instruct the filer to wire money to pay on a debt.

A Brookline, NH teenage girl received serious burn injuries to her hands and face earlier this week when an e-cigarette exploded. The Fire Administration has found that e-cigarettes often contain a lithium-ion battery that uses liquid electrolytes that can overheat when using. Also the USB ports that connect the power adaptor to an e-cigarette can be plugged into a phone charger which can deliver a higher voltage and lead to an explosion. A California woman was awarded 1.9 million dollars earlier this week after the e-cigarette battery she was charging in her car exploded causing her dress to ignite in a fire.

After several hours, a Florida jury this week awarded the family of Sgt. Garry O'Hara $34.7 million dollars against RJ Reynolds. The award consisted of $20 million in punitive damages and $14.7 dollars in compensatory damages. O'Hara, a decorated soldier, died at age 50 from complications of cancer. In a press release, the plaintiff's lawyer, Mark Avera, stated "If Americans only knew what these companies concealed from us about what they knew about smoking and lung cancer and nicotine addiction. That was all they did, study cigarettes and research how to addict more young teens."

On 9/13/2015, Massachusetts revoked or suspended the nursing licenses of 13 individuals. These individuals had falsely claimed to have passed the nursing exam and had obtained a nursing degree. At least 8 of the nurses had claimed to have obtained nursing licenses in states that do not participate in Nursys, the national database for verifying nurses' licenses. MA regulators had retained Professional Credential Services to verify the nurses' background information. In cases where a state does not participate in Nursys, paper checks would have to be made. There is now broader concern about other medical credentials.
