Drug Safety and Accountability Act of 2010

Official photo of Senator Michael Bennet (D-CO).Image via Wikipedia
Sen. Michael Bennet (D-CO) introduced a bill earlier this month, the Drug Safety and Accountability Act of 2010, which is designed to improve regulatory oversight of drug-manufacturing facilities and improve related quality standards and monitoring.

Bennet's press release, Senate Introduces New Bill on Drug-Manufacturing Quality Standards, says:
The bill would strengthen manufacturer quality standards, enhance the FDA’s ability to protect Americans through improved tracking of foreign manufacturing sites, and give the FDA much-needed authority to recall potentially dangerous drugs.

FDA Says Giving Bones To Dogs Is Unsafe

The FDA says don't give your dog a bone.  Here are 10 reasons why it’s a bad idea to give your dog a bone:

1. Broken teeth.
2. Mouth or tongue injuries.
3. Bone gets looped around your dog’s lower jaw.
4. Bone gets stuck in esophagus, the tube that food travels through to reach the stomach.
5. Bone gets stuck in windpipe.
6. Bone gets stuck in stomach.
7. Bone gets stuck in intestines and causes a blockage.
8. Constipation due to bone fragments.
9. Severe bleeding from the rectum.
10. Peritonitis.

Basically, all of these end up with a visit to a vet due to serious injury or death. For more details and explanations, read on:

I was surprised to discover this service. According to the FDA Drug Identification webpage:

We will identify drugs for you as soon as possible. However, please note that this is not an emergency service. In the case of an emergency, please contact the Poison Control Center 1-800-222-1222."

Be Vigilant - Drowning Is Silent

I was surprised to learn that people who are drowning are actually very quiet, and don't wave their arms above water, according to this Medical News Today article, Do You Know What Drowning Looks Like?

Bottomline, when things get very quiet, you must be vigilant. People drowning aren't likely to be able to shout or wave for help.

Have fun this Summer, be safe, and be vigilant.
