(Bloomberg) — Juul Labs Inc., the maker of the e-cigarette that is wildly popular with American teens, said it stopped selling its fruit-flavored nicotine pods to stores and shut down its U.S.-based Facebook and Instagram accounts. The move, which was announced Tuesday by Juul Chief Executive Officer Kevin Burns, follows a campaign from the Food and Drug Administration to curtail underage use of e-cigarettes. On Thursday, an FDA senior official said the agency would restrict sales of many fruity flavored nicotine cartridges used in vaping devices. The curb is expected to cut Juul’s in-store retail sales by 45...

By Susan Scutti, CNN (CNN) — The CEO of e-cigarette maker Juul announced plans Tuesday to eliminate some of its social media accounts and halt most retail sales of flavor products as part of a plan to restrict access to minors.

PARADISE, Calif. (AP) — Authorities moved to set up a rapid DNA-analysis system and bring in cadaver dogs, mobile morgues and more search teams in an intensified effort to find and identify victims of the deadliest wildfire in California history, an inferno that killed at least 42 people. Five days after flames all but obliterated the Northern California town of Paradise, population 27,000, officials were unsure of the exact number of missing. But the death toll was almost certain to rise. "I want to recover as many remains as we possibly can, as soon as we can. Because I know the toll it takes on loved ones,&qu...

Authors: Sams-Dodd J, Sams-Dodd F Abstract Antimicrobial approaches (eg, antibiotics and antiseptics) have been used for decades in the treatment of infected wounds, ulcers, and burns. However, an increasing number of meta-analyses have raised questions regarding the therapeutic value of these approaches. Newer findings show that the body actively hosts an ecosystem of bacteria, fungi, viruses, and mites on its outer surfaces, known as the microbiome, as part of its defense against pathogens. Antimicrobials would disrupt this system and thereby work against the strategy the body has chosen. Recently, a new technolo...

Nitric oxide (NO) is known for its pro-angiogenic functions. However, no clear mechanisms are delineated on its role in promoting angiogenesis in reparative wound healing. We propose that NO regulates SA to IA transition and vice versa in wound mi...

CHICO, Calif. (AP) — Casey Peck had never prayed so hard. His fire engine was trapped with dozens of cars and panicked people as an inferno roared through the Sierra Nevada foothills town of Paradise on Thursday, hot enough to peel the firetruck's paint and melt its hoses, blowing relief valves designed to withstand 900 degrees and immolating nearby vehicles. Four people fleeing their flaming cars pounded on the firetruck's doors and were pulled inside, including a nurse from a nearby hospital with her pant leg on fire. The firefighters pressed fire-resistant blankets against the truck's windows to provide insulation...

PARADISE, Calif. (AP) — As relatives desperately searched shelters for missing loved ones on Sunday, crews searching the smoking ruins of Paradise and outlying areas found six more bodies, raising the death toll to 29, matching the deadliest wildfire in California history. Wildfires continued to rage on both ends of the state, with gusty winds expected overnight which will challenge firefighters. The statewide death toll stood at 31. The Camp Fire that ravaged a swath of Northern California was the deadliest. A total of 29 bodies have been found so far from that fire, Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea told a news brief...
