How to Test Your Drinking Water and Why You Should Do It

Zika Virus spreads to North America

Why (and How) to Know the Origin of Your Meat

As often occurs, members of Congress snuck some crusty little barnacles onto the budget bill that would have been hard to pass on their own. One of those was repealing the law that required labels letting you know the origin of your meat sold in US grocery stores.

Should Premature Babies Be Included In The One-Size-Fits-All Vaccination Policy?

According to a fact sheet published by the University of Auckland, premature babies weighing as little as seventeen ounces are supposed to be vaccinated with same dose of vaccines given to an adult.
