LA news anchor died from meth overdose during sexual encounter at hotel, autopsy reveals

Police say a male who’d been with Burrous at the time placed the call. Burrous was transported to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Initial reports suggested that Burrous likely suffered a possible overdose. The Los Angeles County coroner released a report on Friday ruling his death an accident by means of meth toxicity. It also elaborated on the circumstances of his death. According to the report, Burrous was engaging in “various sexual activities with his companion” when he inserted a “rock” of meth into his rectum. He reportedly inserted a second rock later on in the encounter, placed a mask on and “doused the filters with ‘poppers.’”

Trump administration to ban abortion referrals by taxpayer-funded family planning clinics

COUPLE SUES PLANNED PARENTHOOD FOR CHILD SUPPORT AFTER FAILED ABORTION Title X costs approximately $260-million-a-year and is intended to pay for birth control, STD-testing, infertility testing and other screening services. The release by HHS notes that from the beginning of the fund in 1970, Congress “was clear that Title X funds cannot be used to support abortion.” “Consistent with the statutory requirement that no funds may be expended where abortion is a method of family planning, this regulation no longer requires, and affirmatively prohibits, referral for abortion as a method of family planning,” it says. The new regulation “permits, but no longer requires, nondirective pregnancy counseling, including nondirective counseling on abortion.” PLANNED PARENTHOOD ACCUSED OF MISTREATING PREGNANT EMPLOYEES: REPORT The …

Shocking Rate Of Untreated PTSD Among British Teens

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) might be seen as an occupational hazard from serving in combat, but almost 8 percent of people in the UK have it by the time they turn 18. Yet most are not getting treatment, despite the shockingly high risk of suicide. Trauma in young people, and the long-term effects on their mental health is a relatively under-researched area. Studies of the frequency of childhood PTSD in the US and Europe used diagnostic criteria now considered out of date. To address this, Professor Andrea Danese of King’s College London led interviews with more than 2,000 adolescents born in England and Wales when they were 18. In The Lancet Psychiatry, Danese reports that 31 percent of those in his …

FDA Warns You Shouldn’t Inject The Blood Of The Young

In a horrible indicator of how messed up everything is, the FDA has been forced to issue a warning that you shouldn’t inject the blood of the young into your veins.

Deer in 24 states infected with chronic wasting disease

(CNN) Chronic wasting disease has been detected in wild deer, elk or moose in 24 states, with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warning hunters to avoid handling or eating potentially infected meat. Currently, there is no evidence the disease can spread to humans, but the CDC warned hunters to be cautious around potentially infected animals. It advised people not to handle or eat meat from deer and elk that seem sick or have been found dead. It says latex or rubber gloves should be worn when handling the meat and contact kept to a minimum — especially when handling organs such as the brain or spinal cord. In deer and other cervids, the disease has an incubation period …

New sepsis test ‘could save thousands’

The body’s immune system starts to attack the body’s own organs and the condition can be fatal. The biggest killer you may not know Sepsis: What is it – and how to spot it? Sepsis: Ambulance call handlers ‘must spot condition’ It is hard to diagnose and can initially look like flu, gastroenteritis or a chest infection. Early diagnosis is key because every hour that you delay antibiotic treatment, the likelihood of death increases.

The new test uses a device to detect if one of the protein biomarkers of sepsis, interleukin-6 (IL-6), is present in …

TV drug ads will soon include prices: Will it help consumers?

Meanwhile, a narrator lists off the drug’s side effects, which may include death. CHILDREN’S MUSEUM HEART DISPLAY TIPS GRANDPA OFF TO POTENTIALLY LIFE-THREATENING NETWORK But there’s always one important thing missing from those ads: the price. Most doctors prescribing these medications don’t even know how much you’ll pay out of pocket or whether it’s covered by your insurance. Those decisions are made by someone else. While the true cost of a drug is not a simple question to answer, given the complicated mosaic of drug pricing factors such as insurance coverage and manufacturer rebates, it’s more likely you’ll soon start seeing a variation of those costs, along with the typical listing of potential side effects. That’s provided you live in one of two …

Apple and Google urged to remove Saudi app that tracks women

(CNN Business)Human rights defenders are calling on Apple (AAPL) and Google (GOOGL) to remove the Saudi government appAbsherfrom its platforms, saying that it allows Saudi men to track women under their sponsorship.
