f4494f65e8f1617ce83d871aeb3c61_jumbo-238x300The U.S. Food & Drug Administration told Johnson & Johnson to include new warning labels on its diabetes drug Invokana, as well as variations of the drug sold under the brand Invokamet and Invokamet XR.

This latest requirement from the federal regulatory agency comes on the heels of other legal troubles faced by the corporation. Just two weeks ago, a jury awarded $110 million to a woman in Missouri who claimed that that J&J’s popular talcum powder products cause ovarian cancer.

The new black box warning informs individuals that they could face a higher risk of needing an amputation after taking Invokana (known generically as canagliflozin) or one of its derivatives. This comes from two large clinical trials, both of which demonstrated that the diabetes medication causes a significantly increased risk of leg and foot amputations. Black box warnings are the highest level of required warning for drugs manufactured and sold in the U.S.

garmin-black-copy-300x160The editorial board of the New York Times recently published a piece exposing the absurdity of the necessity for states to educate African-American drivers on how to survive being pulled over by police officers.

“For generations, African-American parents have borne a special burden in mentoring their teenage children as they begin driving, having to say, be calm and extra polite when stopped by the police, and do nothing unexpected that could get you killed.

It’s horrifying that any parent has to have that conversation. But racial profiling by the police is a reality, and in these days of repeated and sometimes fatal highway confrontations, captured by cellphone videos, such warnings can be a matter of life and death.

85 mph sign Reyes Browne ReilleySince the removal of the national maximum speed limit in 1995, most states have slowly increased speed limits across the country. Areas once restricted to 55 miles per hour now allow speeds up to 85 miles per hour. This large increase escalates the number and severity of crashes throughout the United States. Approximately 28 percent of crash fatalities in 2014 resulted from high-speed collisions. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, high speeds affect the number of crashes in three ways.

Less Reaction Time

As speed increases, a driver has less and less time to react to a hazard in the roadway. The human brain needs time to process the information before the person knows how to react. Though it may only take a few seconds to realize you must break or swerve, if you’re driving too fast you may not have time to react safely.
