Heather Holland, of Weatherford, Texas, reportedly fell ill last Monday and two days later was diagnosed with the flu. According to Fox News, doctors prescribed Tamiflu, an antiviral drug that costs approximately $116. However, according to a statement by Holland's husband...

    A strong rally in cannabis-related stocks this week to mark the start of sales of recreational marijuana in California came to a screeching halt Thursday, on a report that the Justice Department is about to throw a spanner in the works for the nascent weed industry. U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, a longtime marijuana opponent, is expected to rescind an Obama-era policy that gave protections to states that have legalized marijuana as long as they abide by a series of guidelines, the Associated Press reported, citing unnamed sources. An announcement that will scrap what is known as the Cole Memo...

    During the five-night cruise, 332 cases of the illness were reported, Owen Torres, a spokesman for Royal Caribbean told CNN in a statement. He stressed that it was a small percentage — 5.99 percent — of the more than 5,000 passengers and crew onboard the ship, Independence of the Seas. “Those affected by the short-lived illness were treated by our ship’s doctors with over-the-counter medication,” Torres said, “and we hope all our guests feel better quickly.” It is not known what caused the illness. “It was just terrifying,” Tracy Flores, a passenger whose 15-year-old son came down with the illness,...

    Hillary Clinton today called on mental health professionals to create a standardized curriculum to teach middle and high school students nationwide about anxiety and depression. Mental health experts “need to come forward with a curriculum to the boards of education and the administration of school districts and just lobby like crazy to get those into teacher training, into school programming,” Clinton said. She was a panelist at a discussion at the Paley Center for Media in Manhattan hosted by the Child Mind Institute, a city-based nonprofit focused on adolescent mental health issues. In New York mental health education is already...

    As much joy as a pet can bring to the life of its human, when a beloved dog or cat falls ill, the emotional toll can be high. In fact, caring for an ailing animal often ends up placing a significant "caregiver burden" on its owner, new research finds. "Think of the phrase, 'Giving until it hurts,'" said study author Mary Beth Spitznagel. Essentially, it's the heavy emotional burden one can experience when the act of caring stretches a person's physical, emotional or even financial capacities to the breaking point. "We found that individuals with a chronically or terminally ill...

    A female employee at Fremont Middle School in Las Vegas died of tuberculosis in mid-July after potentially exposing more than 100 people to the highly contagious disease, school and public health officials said Monday. Ann Schiller, the school’s principal, sent a phone message to parents on July 11 saying that “an individual at our school” had recently been diagnosed with an active case of tuberculosis. It said that public health officials would contact families “within the next few days” if their kids needed to be tested. Lynn Row, the chief nurse for the Clark County School District, said she could...

    Fellow FREEPers, I am NOT trying to be morbid or tactless, but given the recent development with Senator McCain, I want to RESPECTFULLY ask the question. We recall how, on national TV, Obama told a woman whose mother had a terminal condition that might be treated she would probably get a painkiller: So, with this fresh sad case in mind, does any enterprising REAL NEWS people to find out how OBAMACARE treats someone with Senator McCain's sickness.

When asked about going into politics, Jenner said, “I have been asked that question quite a bit, to be honest with you over the next year I’m looking into it."" I want to know, and I have to be very smart about this—where can I do a better job for my community, in bringing the Republican Party around when it comes to all LGBT issues? Is it from the outside?"...

    Shares of a key biotech ETF plunged to their lowest point since the election, after President-elect Donald Trump pledged in an interview with Time Magazine to curb spiraling drug prices. In morning trading on the stock market today, the iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology Index (IBB) exchange-traded fund was down more than 3%, near 266. The index had jumped 9% on Nov. 9, after Trump beat Hillary Clinton in the race for the White House, on the belief that high drug prices would not be as big a focus for Trump as it would have been for Clinton.

     Hillary Clinton's medical problem at the 9/11 Memorial was not really a fainting spell. Her physician claimed she was overheated and dehydrated, yet the temperature was only 77 degrees in lower Manhattan.  Clinton wobbled and collapsed at the van, and her staffers had to lift and drag her into the vehicle. There is a zoomed-in, slow-motion version of the video showing her handlers supporting her, with her feet dragging behind her. This is like "Weekend at Bernie's." Why was there no chair provided for her to sit in while she waited for her van? Why were there no people right next to her to provide immediate...

    A prominent internist writes with admittedly speculative comments on the diagnosis of pneumonia made public today regarding Hillary Clinton. He writes: During my 19 years as a board certified internist I have taken care of many hundreds of patients with pneumonia. The story about Hillary Clinton being diagnosed with pneumonia raises a red flag as to the cause. It could simply have been a community acquired pneumonia, which means she contracted it as a healthy person living her usual life. This happens occasionally, even to healthy people. If this is the case the timing certainly is unfortunate for her given...
