Tamiflu Dosing Confuses Doctors

A new article in the New England Journal of Medicine details the problems two doctors had in administering common medicine to their children. Kara Jacobson (a health literacy researcher at Emory University) and her husband (a doctor operating from Atlanta Georgia) were horrified at contradictory Tamiflu instructions. Warnings on the box state taking over 12 milligrams could be dangerous, but the parents found over 45 milligrams in the instructed dosage of “three-fourths a tablespoon.” Since Tamiflu is commonly suggested by doctors on curing Swine Flu, these parents are trying to stem a tide of overdosing.

Grizzlies Re-Endangered

U.S. District Judge Donald Molloy ruled that the North American Grizzly Bear be returned to “Threatened” status under the Endangered Species Act. Grizzly bears were removed from the list in 2007 due to an increase in population. The court ruled, however, that there is not enough Whitebark Pine (the Grizzly's primary food source) to sustain the population. The 46 page ruling cited that climate change is to blame. Judge Donald Molloy also ruled that Yellowstone Fish and Wildlife Officer procedures are inadequate in protecting the great bear. For more information, click the link below:
