Stung by Yelp reviews, health providers spill patient secrets
by Charles Ornstein, ProPublica. The story was co-published with The Washington Post. Burned by negative reviews, some health providers are casting their patients’ privacy aside and sharing intimate details online as they try to rebut criticism. In the course of these arguments — which have spilled out publicly on ratings sites like Yelp — doctors, dentists, chiropractors and massage therapists, among others, have divulged details of patients’ diagnoses, treatments and idiosyncrasies.

Are Proposed Links between Pornography and Labial Surgery More Than Just Wild, Unmitigated Speculation?
Every now and again, fears of pornography are stirred, often by the religious right, under the guise of a "public health" crisis of some sort. Very recently the governor of Utah signed a decree declaring pornography a public health issue. Although claims of the ills of porn are typically far reaching, some of the usual horrors, such as violence toward women, have been largely questioned, in part because rates of such violence have plummeted during the era of internet porn. Teen pregnancy rates, likewise, are declining to historic lows, somewhat inconveniently for the "sky is falling" set. Claims that ...

(HARTFORD, Conn.) — The Connecticut woman who underwent a face transplant five years ago after being attacked by a chimpanzee is back in a Boston hospital after doctors discovered her body is rejecting tissue from the transplant.
