Read the full article: UAVs Give New Meaning To Drug Delivery: - Med Device Online

"No More Routine Pelvic Exams...Really?

I am a female general internist. I provide well-woman screening -- including "the" pelvic exam -- for the vast majority of my patients. That's why new clinical practice guidelines from the American College of Physicians (ACP),[1] based on a comprehensive systematic review of 68 years' worth of English-language evidence, really caught my eye.

Food additives on the rise as FDA scrutiny wanes - The Washington Post

Read the full article: Food additives on the rise as FDA scrutiny wanes - The Washington Post:

"The explosion of new food additives coupled with an easing of oversight requirements is allowing manufacturers to avoid the scrutiny of the Food and Drug Administration, which is responsible for ensuring the safety of chemicals streaming into the food supply.

And in hundreds of cases, the FDA doesn’t even know of the existence of new additives, which can include chemical preservatives, flavorings and thickening agents, records and interviews show.

One widely known example is Ranbaxy Laboratories [500359.BY +1.16%], which is prevented from sending products from four of its plants in India and is also operating under a consent decree that requires improvements before the ban can be lifted.
