The ongoing debate about e-cigarettes has taken a new turn.
A study shows they’re dramatically less harmful than regular cigarettes.
The study out of the UK shows e-cigs are 95 percent less damaging to your health.
It goes as far to suggest that e-cigarettes may be contributing to falling smoking rates among adults and young people.
This study comes within hours of the release of a U.S. study into smoking among teens.
It suggests e-cigs may be a gateway for them to move to traditional cigarettes.
There may be some steps you can take to ward off some of the rising costs of prescription drugs.
Consumer Reports magazine sent teams out to see if you can save at the pharmacist’s counter and they were surprised to find you really can if you ask the right questions.
“Ask your pharmacist, is there any other medication and preferably a generic even though some generics we have seen some increases and some price spikes, but you want to ask if there is another medication that is equally effective, equally safe that you and my doctor might be able to recommend instead,” said Lisa Gill, prescription drugs editor for Consumer Reports.
Americans on average pay about $39 extra at the pharmacy counter, and some people are paying as much as $100 extra.
The eight glasses of water a day recommendation could be going down the drain.
One doctor claims the number is a total health myth and not meeting the quota might not be horrible after all.
The doctor wrote in the New York Times that not drinking 8 glasses of water a day does not mean you’re dehydrated.
He says there’s no science behind the rule and notes you can get the hydration you need through food like fruits and veggies.
