Senate Report: The Opioid Industry Has Paid Advocacy Groups $65 Million
A bipartisan congressional investigation released Wednesday found that key players in the nation’s opioid industry have spent $65 million since 1997 funding nonprofits that advocate treating pain with medications, a strategy intended to boost the sale of prescription painkillers.

Discussion Epilepsy is a common problem for the general pediatrician. Its incidence is estimated at 41-87/100,000 children.
