Zofran, Birth Defects And Injuries To Pregnant Women

A new study has called into question the safety of the popular drug Zofran. GlaxoSmithKline manufactures Zofran, also known as ondansetron. Zofran is approved by the Food and Drug Administration to treat nausea and vomiting caused by chemotherapy, radiation treatment and surgery. It is also prescribed by some doctors to treat nausea experienced by pregnant women. The study indicates that pregnant women who take Zofran may suffer an increased risk of severe birth defects and other injuries.

Deadly Day For Drunk Driving

Alcohol is a major contributor to fatal car accidents. Roughly one-third of all deadly accidents involve a driver who has had too much to drink. Drunk driving incidents tend to increase during holidays when people celebrate with alcohol. March 17 has become one of the worst days of the year, in terms of the number of alcohol-related traffic accidents it sees. St. Patrick's Day celebrations often involve drinking. They should also include safety measures designed to address the potential for drinking and driving before it can become a problem.

Poverty and Workplace Illness

A recent report issued by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration shows just devastating a workplace injury or illness can be to the individuals and families affected. An investigation into these injuries conducted National Public Radio and ProPublica found that severe injuries and illnesses send a huge percentage of lower and middle class workers into poverty. The studies highlight the impact of an attack on worker's compensation payments in a number of states. Since 2004, 33 states have made changes to the law that make it harder for workers who are injured or become sick at work to get financial assistance.

Deadly Truck Accidents In Illinois And Nationwide

Illinois was the site of 991 deadly motor vehicle crashes in 2013. Of those, 142 involved a semi truck. Fatal semi accidents have risen every year since 2009 and have trended generally upward for many years. While total traffic fatalities have dropped, the share of those fatalities involving large trucks has gone up. There are now more than 5.6 million licensed commercial vehicle drivers, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation and the industry is expected to grow rapidly in the near future. The problem of truck fatalities is only going to increase.

The Law And Global Trade In Asbestos

Many countries have correctly labeled asbestos a hazardous substance and restricted its use. Western nations, in particular, have enacted laws to prevent or reduce asbestos hazards. Asbestos abatement programs help remove the deadly substance from schools. In the United States, the Environmental Protection Agency sets emission standards for asbestos as it is considered a hazardous air pollutant. Superfund provides resources to address sites have become unusable due to the expense involved in removing asbestos. In Canada, asbestos has been classified as a hazardous substance. Unfortunately, international law has no such provision. Many developing nations have no regulations concerning asbestos and there are companies and nations seeking to profit from this.
