25% of Antibiotic Prescriptions Are Unnecessary. Here ’s Why That’s So Dangerous
The overuse of antibiotics is a growing problem. When used too frequently or inappropriately, the drugs can become ineffective for conditions they could normally treat since bacteria can develop resistance to them. As more bacteria are becoming resistant to all available antibiotics, there will be fewer, and sometimes not any, antibiotic options for people who might truly need them to control life-threatening infections. Now, a new study published in the BMJ puts some hard numbers on just how often they’re overprescribed. Nearly 25% of the time, antibiotics are inappropriately prescribed, the study finds.

Are E-Cigarettes Safe? Here ’s What the Science Says
In 1965, when Herbert Gilbert was granted the first patent on a smoke- and tobacco-­free cigarette, he wrote that the product would “provide a safe and harmless means for and method of smoking.” More than 60 years later, however, modern iterations of Gilbert’s invention have sparked debate in the public-health community. E-cigarettes, which have grown increasingly popular in the past five years, were designed as a tool to help people quit ­smoking—and by doing so they should drastically reduce rates of lung cancer and other diseases. But the question is, does that potential outweigh their po...
