The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt signed a proposed rule on April 24, 2018 intended to restrict the use of science in crafting regulations.

The “secret science” proposal titled “strengthening transparency and validity in regulatory science” was sent to the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) on April 19, 2018. “We need to make sure [scientists’] data and methodology are published as part of the record,” said Pruitt. “O...

White House Rescissions Proposal Could Cut Funding from Omnibus Spending Bill
The White House is expected to send a proposal to Congress, potentially drawing funding cuts, known as rescissions, from the recently approved omnibus spending package for fiscal year (FY) 2018. The White House plan is based on a 1974 budget law that allows the President to propose rescissions, which then need to be approved by Congress within 45 days. In its FY 2018 budget request, the Trump Administration had proposed deep cuts to several agencies, which were rejected in the final FY 2018 Omnibus Appropriations Act. The President had expressed opposition to increased domestic spending and had initially threatened to ve...

Playing Youth Tackle Football Is Linked to Earlier Symptoms of Brain Disease
This study has limitations. The brains used in this study may not represent those of the broader tackle football population, because most ex-football players, and their families, chose to donate their brains to shed light on their cognitive and behavioral struggles. Still, the results are alarming. “The data supports that you should not play tackle football until you’re more physically mature,” says McKee, whose future work will attempt to define a sort of tipping point for tackle football: how long can kids play before the risks rise exponentially?

However, both companies never agreed to a licensing deal. In 2003, Acantha inked an agreement with Stryker (NYSE:SYK)’s...

Conclusion Alcohol labelling provides a relatively low-cost, population-level approach to providing consumers with information about the content and potential harms related to alcohol consumption. In both Studies 1 and 2, we found relatively high levels of support for alcohol labelling interventions, although support for health warnings was lowest. Increased support for health labelling policies was related to more positive responses to health warnings. Our research suggests that a comprehensive alcohol labelling policy should consider a broad range of message content and formatting in order to maximise reach. We have deve...
