Can Cannabis Help Your Gut?

He started using prescription steroid suppositories to cope with flare-ups of the inflammatory bowel disease...

What 9/11 Survivors and First Responders Have Taught Us About Public Health in the 20 Years Since the Attacks
Dr. David Prezant was knocked fully airborne at 9:59 on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001. He didn’t see the impact coming, but he felt it when it hit—and it nearly killed him. Little more than an hour earlier, Prezant, then the deputy chief medical officer of the Fire Department of New York, was headed for his usual workplace at the FDNY’s Office of Medical Affairs, just across the Manhattan Bridge in Brooklyn. He had already heard that a plane had hit the North Tower of the World Trade Center, and he reckoned that it was an accident. By the time he reached his office, however, the South Tower had been struc...
