Rising temps could cause as many as 2,100 fatal injuries per year

Rising temps could cause as many as 2,100 fatal injuries per year

Science
Jan. 13 (UPI) -- If temperatures continue to climb as a result of climate change, hundreds more people in the United States are likely to succumb to fatal injuries. Climate change will increase the prevalence of extreme heat, prolonged droughts and even air pollution, all of which will result in the loss of human life. But new research suggests rising temperatures will increase the number of fatal injuries that occur each year in the United States. Scientists analyzed the number of fatalities that occurred in every county in every state except Hawaii and Alaska between 1980 and 2017, as well as unusual monthly temperature changes over the 38-year period. The fatalities data included both unintentional deaths, transportation accidents, drownings and falls, and intentional deaths, homicide...

Oct. 3 (UPI) -- Eighteen people are dead and the number of confirmed and probable lung injury cases associated with vaping has soared to 1,080 in 48 states and the U.S. Virgin Islands, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration said Thursday. An increase of 275 cases since last week includes about half new patients becoming ill in the past two weeks, the federal agencies said in a telebriefing call. The FDA still has not identified any substance or substances on which it can pin the outbreak, said Judy McMeekin, the FDA's deputy associate commissioner for regulatory affairs. FDA investigators have evaluated 440 samples from patients in 18 states, she said. Many of the products handed over to investigators had been drained of liquids and were harde...
Sticking to one sport could up injuries among teen athletes

Sticking to one sport could up injuries among teen athletes

Health
Sept. 29 (UPI) -- Here's a good reason to encourage your teenager to play more than one sport: New research finds kids who concentrate on only one sport may be at risk for stress fractures, tendinitis and knee injuries. "It's wonderful for a child to love a sport and to want to engage in it, but we must keep in mind the number of hours spent playing," said study author Alison Field, a professor of epidemiology and pediatrics at Brown University. "They add up pretty quickly." The findings are a result of following more than 10,000 older children throughout the United States. The bottom line is that kids who do the most hours of intense activity per week, and that happens to be those focusing on a single sport, are the most likely to be injured. Field hopes that coaches, parents and doctor...
