    With a 10-day supply of opioids, 1 in 5 become long-term users

    The longer a person uses opioids, the greater the risk of forming a deadly addiction. But just how long does it take to switch from being a short-term user—say, while you’re dealing with pain after a surgery—to a long-term, potentially problematic user? A few weeks? A month? According to a new study, that transition could take just a matter of days.

    The voice was calm and quiet and desperate: "I'm in a very bad situation, and I need to get out." The caller, a 20-year-old woman, told a Georgia dispatcher that she was being held against her will. And it wasn't just her. "It's a house full of girls and ... if I try to leave, he'll try to kill me and stuff," she said, prompting the dispatcher to ask, "Wait — did you say you're in a house full of girls?"

    Sickle cell anemia patient 'cured' by gene therapy, doctors say

    In a world first, a teenager with sickle cell disease achieved complete remission after an experimental gene therapy at Necker Children's Hospital in Paris, researchers say.

    Buddy was ‘trying to save’ boy who escaped drowning

    THE pit bull cross which “saved” a boy whose mother allegedly tried to drown him in the Murray River has been spared. NSW Police has advised the Murray River Council that the animal was responding to “extreme circumstances” and likely acting in a “reasonable defence” of the boy who remains in hospital in Melbourne. Earlier, a petition had been started to protect the dog, named Buddy, following the drowning tragedy that left the nine-year-old in hospital and his brother, 5, dead.

    Given the choice, patients will reach for cannabis over prescribed opioids

    Video Games Are Better Than Real Life

    On the evening of November 9, having barely been awake to see the day, I took the subway to Sunset Park. My objective was to meet a friend at the arcade Next Level. In size, Next Level resembles a hole-in-the-wall Chinese restaurant. It does indeed serve food — free fried chicken and shrimp were provided that night, and candy, soda, and energy drinks were available at a reasonable markup — but the sustenance it provides is mostly of a different nature.

    President Trump Takes Aim at the Environment

    President Trump brandished executive pen and fresh hyperbole last week in blessing the coal industry’s decades-old practice of freely dumping tons of debris into the streams and mountain hollows of America’s mining communities. “Another terrible job-killing rule,” Mr. Trump declared at a signing ceremony that struck down the Obama administration’s attempt to regulate surface mining wastes. He insisted he was saving “many thousands of American jobs” in sparing coal companies the exp...
