    EPA chief Scott Pruitt: Global warming may be a good thing

    EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt's assertion that global warming might be beneficial because "humans have most flourished" during warming trends is drawing heavy skepticism from many climate-change experts.

    E-cigarettes are overwhelmingly healthier than tobacco smoke, and there is little evidence to suggest they act as a gateway for young people who then progress to smoking, Public Health England (PHE) has said. PHE published the evidence review, which is consistent with the agency's previous findings that e-cigarette use – or "vaping" – is at least 95% less dangerous than smoking cigarettes.

    Democrats are demanding to know if Russian trolls or bots have tried to ‘manipulate public opinion’ on Facebook and Twitter again
