Diet drinks linked with heart disease, death - CNBC:

"Researchers found women who drank two or more diet drinks a day were 30 percent more likely to have a heart attack or other cardiovascular "event," and 50 percent more likely to die, than women who rarely touch such drinks.

The findings, being presented at a meeting of the American College of Cardiology, don't suggest that the drinks themselves are killers. But women who toss back too many diet sodas may be trying to make up for unhealthy habits, experts say."

GlaxoSmithKline flags product tampering as wrong pills surface in alli packages - FiercePharma

GlaxoSmithKline flags product tampering as wrong pills surface in alli packages - FiercePharma:

"The tampered-with packages have cropped up in 7 states, GSK said, and sharp-eyed consumers have reported 5 different lot numbers. The rogue packages may appear to be authentic on the outside, but the bottle could contain a variety of tablets and capsules, the company said in a release.

Also, the suspect alli bottles may not be labeled, and tamper-evident seals may not be intact, or they may not match the official versions. Finally, lot numbers and expiration dates on the bottles and outer cartons don't match."

Combination Products 101 - A Primer For Medical Device Makers - Med Device Online

Combination Products 101 A Primer For Medical Device Makers - Med Device Online:

"Most people have a very limited view of combination products. There are combination products under development today that involve many more things than just drugs, biologics, and medical devices. They involve foods. They involve nutraceuticals. They involve cosmetics, or so-called cosmeceuticals. They involve all kinds of technologies. From a regulatory perspective, these emerging combination products are going to present some real challenges for the future, because we don't have the regulation to support them."

Is the mythical "five-second rule" actually real? - CBS News

Is the mythical "five-second rule" actually real? - CBS News:

"New research finds that there is some truth to the so-called "five-second rule" -- the belief that food is safe to eat if picked up from the floor in under five seconds.

Researchers at Aston University in Birmingham, U.K. studied the rate of bacteria transfer in food items dropped on the floor and picked up within three to 30 seconds. They found that the amount of time an item spent on the floor was directly related to bacteria levels."

To prevent child poisoning, CDC says meds should be 'up and away' - USA Today

To prevent child poisoning, CDC says meds should be 'up and away' - USA Today:

"Budniz said that the message should be "up and away and out of sight" so kids aren't tempted by medicines.

Carr says caretakers should also make sure they don't have medications lying around in purses and coats, and to remember that "child resistant" does not mean "child proof." The government standard for child resistant is that 4 out of 5 children can't open the container within 10 minutes.

"With 64,000 children ending up in the emergency room for medicine poisoning each year, this is just a call that people must be extra vigilant," Carr said."
