Health News on Spark
"Ghostwriting Rampant in Medical Journals: Study
Leading medical journals contained a significant number of articles in 2008 that were written by "ghost" reporters paid by pharmaceutical companies, a new study finds."
That should make us all trust the medical journals.
"6.2 million Americans have abused prescription drugs in the past month in 2008."
That's a decrease from 2007!
"Illegal drug use by 50-59 year olds increased from 2.7% in 2002 to 4.6% in 2008."
The article goes on to say it's because baby boomers are getting older.
We need to spread the spark, people!!! There are better ways to deal with life's issues!!!
