The 6 Medications You Should Never Take When Driving
It’s a given that safe driving needs concentration, alertness and an ability to react in a coordinated and timely fashion. But what may not occur to you is that the medications you’re taking can seriously impact all of these things. And it’s not just prescription medications, but over-the-counter products as well. “While laws differ from state to state, you can be charged with a DUI if caught driving hazardously while taking prescription or OTC meds, even if your doctor wrote you that prescription,” adds C. Michael White, Pharm.D., FCP, FCCP, Professor and Head of the Department of Pharmacy Pr...

Voodoo Medicine: Time To Stop
The world's most celebrated athlete standing on the podium in Rio in honor of receiving yet another gold medal has something important in common with your lazy uncle throwing back a cold one in his Barcalounger.

[Report] Sex-specific responses to climate change in plants alter population sex ratio and performance
Males and females are ecologically distinct in many species, but whether responses to climate change are sex-specific is unknown. We document sex-specific responses to climate change in the plant Valeriana edulis (valerian) over four decades and across its 1800-meter elevation range. Increased elevation was associated with increased water availability and female frequency, likely owing to sex-specific water use efficiency and survival. Recent aridification caused male frequency to move upslope at 175 meters per decade, a rate of trait shift outpacing reported species’ range shifts by an order of magnitude. This increase ...

[Perspective] How climate change affects plants' sex lives
Climate change affects wild plant species across their geographical ranges. Studies at the margins of species' ranges reveal upslope expansion, low-elevation range contraction, and, in some cases, a lack of geographic response to climate change (1). However, all populations, including those in the core of species' ranges, are subject to climate-driven natural selection that promotes adaptation to a warmer world (2). Theoretical models show that coupled spatial and temporal responses of populations can mediate the negative effects of climate change (3, 4), but it remains unclear whether these processes can occur fast enough...
