If you’re ever in a car crash, for instance, a simple cell phone can be the key to making sure you’re properly compensated for any damage or injury.
Of course, the first priority in a crash is to attend to anyone who might be hurt. But as soon as it’s safe to …

Tanning salons can be seemingly useful in many circumstances, especially to those who don’t live in sunny states like Florida. If you live in New York and want to look a bit tanner for your wedding in November, you can disregard the chilly temperatures and head to the tanning salon.

According to the American Academy of Dermatology, you’re 59% more likely to develop melanoma if you use tanning beds than you’d be if you didn’t.
The FDA will mandate that future tanning beds contain …

Erika Langhart was 24 years old when she died in 2011 of a pulmonary embolism, an often-fatal complication during which arteries in the lungs become blocked. Langhart’s family contends that the untimely death – which occurred just before Erika was set to begin law school at Georgetown University – was no random accident, but rather the result of the widely-used birth control device NuvaRing, manufactured by pharmaceutical behemoth Merck.

The FDA has just recently released new warnings regarding the popular sleep aid Lunesta (Eszopiclone). In addition to issuing new warnings, the government agency has published new requirements that Lunesta must meet in terms of properly warning consumers of the possible dangers of taking Lunesta.

The case dates back to just over two years ago, when the first in a series of lawsuits were filed against the company, alleging that consumers had been misled regarding the health benefits of the new type of running shoes.
The marketing campaigns for the so-called “barefoot-style” shoes claimed that wearing the shoes could strengthen feet and prevent running-related injuries better than other running shoes could. Although the aesthetic concept behind the shoes was surely innovative, there is …
