Mom Was Right. Eye Injuries From Paintball And BB Guns Are On The Rise
(CNN) — Nonpowder firearms like BB and paintball guns aren’t typically considered lethal weapons. But as the rate of eye injuries linked to these weapons surges, researchers say it’s time to take these types of guns seriously, too. Between 1990 and 2016, the overall rate of injuries from nonpowder firearms among children declined more than 54%. But the rate of eye injuries, often severe, jumped more than 30%, according to a new study published in Pediatrics. “Nonpowder firearms should be regarded as potentially lethal weapons,” the study’s authors wrote. Researchers combed through statis...

The sheer numbers can feel overwhelming. The UN refugee agency UNHCR says more than 70 million people are currently displaced by conflict, the most since the Second World War. Among them are nearly 26 million who have fled their countries (over half under the age...

BOSTON (CBS) – Concussion experts in Massachusetts say they are concerned head injuries among student athletes are not being diagnosed, especially at schools with lower funding.
