The FDA approved Novocure’s NovoTTF-100L System under the agency’s Humanitarian Device Exemption. The approval comes eight months after Novocure, which manufactures and markets the dev...

Electric hookahs might be no safer than traditional charcoal-based ones
(American Chemical Society) Waterpipe tobacco smoking, otherwise known as 'hookah' or 'shisha,' is becoming increasingly popular worldwide, especially among youth. Traditional hookahs burn charcoal as a heat source, but recently, electrical heating elements (EHEs) have been introduced to the market. Reinforced by product advertising and package labeling, many hookah smokers believe that EHEs are less harmful than charcoal. Now, researchers report in ACS' Chemical Research in Toxicology that although EHEs reduce some toxicants, they increase others. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)
