Drugs or bath salts choose wisely

The entire year has had a lot of speculations being made over bath salts. And now they have been in the headlines for quite some time. Even so that there are some countries in the world that have banned the usage of these bath salts as well.

Any good company that manufactures bath salts does not as a rule use these substances in their products. They use natural ingredients such as Epsom salts and essential salts. And most importantly they are made out of very good quality of salts and oils and may include sea weed as well which is very expensive. These products are 100% organic and can cause no harm when used. Designer drugs These bath salts are known as designer drugs but there is nothing new in that. These days synthetic marijuana is also easily available and people are selling it as incense and this drug is very dangerous and can prove to be harmful as well. And they are not meant for human consumption.

AbstractLong has the standard of care for substance use disorder (SUD) been pharmacotherapy, psychotherapy, or rehabilitation with varying success.

AbstractOpioid overdose accounted for more than 47,000 deaths in the United States in 2018. The risk of new persistent opioid use following breast cancer surgery is significant, with up to 10% of patients continuing to fill opioid prescriptions one year after surgery. Over prescription of opioids is far too common. A recent study suggested that up to 80% of patients receiving a prescription for opioids post-operatively do not need them (either do not fill the prescription or do not use the medication). In order to address this important issue, The American Society of Breast Surgeons empaneled an inter-disciplinary committe...
