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!!!
