Lab-grown meat is OK for human consumption, FDA says. That’s the headline of an article I read.
Donald Trump presided over radical deregulation of our health care system by presidential execution order. Fears that Joe Biden would completely reverse course are proving premature.

Over the years I have talked to people who faced medical bills for care they needed but could not pay. In a couple cases I told them about CareCredit, the largest medical care lender. For example, the lady who owns the salon where my wife used to go needed eye surgery. She was happy to learn there was an easy way to make payments for surgery. Our dog’s veterinarian and the equine vet that cares for my wife’s horse both take CareCredit. I’ve even met a plastic surgeon who accepts CareCredit. If your budget can’t take an $8,000 hit for a facelift you can finance it over time putting down a couple thousand dollars and maybe pay $200 a months for several years with interest.
Overdose deaths were up in 2021 and the fastest growing segment is teenagers. There were 108,000 overdose deaths in 2021, of which 71,000 were due to fentanyl or fentanyl-laced products. The reason fentanyl is so deadly is because as little as 2mg can be lethal. Fentanyl is 50 times as powerful as heroin and 100 times as powerful as morphine.
