The opioid epidemic is pushing down the life expectancy in the US, new research says. Once a leader in longevity, the US has dropped behind most other high-income countries — due in large part to accidental deaths from prescription and illicit opioids that are sweeping the country.

That’s in part because deaths from opioid overdoses more than tripled in that same time, according to a study published today in the Journal of the American Medical... Read More

Maggie Shen King’s novel paints a picture of future China that’s not far away

In Business, Government, Healthcare, Legal, Science & Nature, Security by The VergeLeave a Comment

Tech News Keywords: , , , , , , ,

For three decades, China has been running what amounts to a huge social experiment: a one-child policy that limits each family to have only one offspring. The policy has led to a greater gender imbalance than the global average. In 2015, Beijing relaxed this policy into allow two children per family. But in Maggie Shen King’s debut novel, An Excess Male, China continues to face this real-world dystopian scenario. In an alternate timeline set in the near future, the one-child policy has continued for several decades, radically changing the social structure. In this world, a woman can take up to three husbands, depending on how “patriotic” a family decides to be and how desperately in need of c... Read More

A 67-year-old man in Australia got cyanide poisoning from the apricot kernel extract he was taking to beat cancer. The man didn’t die, but he had abnormally low levels of oxygen in his body — a side effect of cyanide poisoning that can be fatal. Doctors in Melbourne realized the patient had low oxygen levels when he was under anesthesia for a routine surgery. Blood tests later revealed he had cyanide levels in his blood 25 times the accepted level. His case, described in the journal BMJ Case Reports, shows how alternative medications, including sham cancer treatments, can put patients at risk. ... Read More

Pleasure was soon replaced by panic: lakes are not supposed to look like swimming pools. When biologists investigated, they found that the turbid swirls of plankton that typically grow in the lake by the million had nearly vanished—consumed gradually, they could only guess, by some ravenous organism. The likely culprits were mollusks: the zebra mussel and its cousin the quagga mussel. The two species—Dreissena polymorpha and Dreissena bugensis—are thought to have ... Read More
