House tax bill would delay medical device tax by another 5 years
A bill to extend this year’s tax cuts would also put a five-year moratorium on the medical device tax enacted as part of the Affordable Care Act.

The U.S. House Ways & Means Committee yesterday released the tax extenders legislation including the new moratorium, which would pause the tax until 2025.

Once the lifeblood of the community, it also became a cold-hearted killer. Although the mine was closed almost 30 years ago, health officials have since documented more than 400 deaths linked to asbestos-related diseases such as mes...

The Estrogen Dilemma and Alzheimer's Disease
This article cuts across a broad spectrum of diseases, but is focused on hormones, estrogen and something called the timing hypothesis.This proposition, that estrogen ’s effects on our minds and our bodies may depend heavily upon when we first start taking it, is a controversial and very big idea.

January saw the union launch a campaign to encourage local government pension funds to divest from carbon – in other words, to pull their hard-earned money out of environment-unfriendly businesses.
