Middle-aged adults who take more than 5 pills a day are 3 times more likely to become frail - increasing their risk of falls, disability and even death

Taking more than five prescription tablets a day causes pensioners to become frail, new research suggests.

While consuming more than 10 doubles an elderly person's risk of falls, disability and even death within three years, scientists claim.

Mixing numerous medications causes pensioners to become prematurely weak as they affect the body's ability to function.

Experts say the practice, known as polypharmacy, actually causes all of the drugs to negatively interact with each other.

Laundry pods are poisoning our kids: 30-fold increase in children burned by the capsules since 2012 - because new designs look tastier and tastier

Researchers found the detergent pacs have caused a 30-fold increase among preschool-aged kids when it comes to chemical eye burns.

The pods were first introduced to the market in 2012, and wide-spread use was adopted due to their being marketed as a more convenient way to do laundry.

But scientists say that the products' packaging and candy-like appearance have resulted in scores of children playing with, and even ingesting, them.

Cold and flu remedies TRIPLE your risk of having a heart attack, study finds

Researchers analysed claims data from nearly 10,000 patients who were hospitalised for a heart attack over a seven-year period in Taiwan.

The goal was to investigate whether non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) had an effect on the risk of a heart attack.

While acute respiratory infections, such as a cold or flu, were also monitored in the study published in the Journal of Infectious Diseases.

The results showed that using oral painkillers during a respiratory infection saw a 3.4-fold heart attack risk.

While that jumped to 7.2 when patients were given the drugs via a hospital drip, according to the researchers.

Conversely, when patients had an infection but didn't take NSAIDs their risk was 2.7 times greater than a healthy person.

However, that fell to 1.5 when they took the drugs while infection-free.

Hypocrites? How UN branded Australia’s OWN tough immigration laws as a breach of human rights

Tough laws in Australia, which force migrants who arrive by boat into offshore detention centers, have been labelled 'cruel, inhuman and degrading' by the UN.

Australia's prime minister Malcolm Turnbull reportedly clashed with Donald Trump, in particular over what POTUS labelled a 'dumb' refugee deal made between the two nations under Barack Obama, as the pair spoke as leaders for the first time.

Yet while the Republican's hard-line immigration policies has drawn criticism, Australia's own system has been likened to 'open-air prisons that have increasingly eroded the human rights' of migrants.

Fake news did NOT sway the election: Study shows only a 'small fraction' of voters saw bogus pro-Trump stories

While bogus pro-Trump stories far outweighed those about Hillary Clinton, only a 'small fraction' of voters - eight percent - ever saw them and even fewer actually believed or remembered them, researchers say.

Much larger numbers remembered seeing and believing legitimate news stories.

In order for it to swing the election, fake news would have therefore had to have been as persuasive as 36 television adverts, the study by NYU and Stanford claims.

'Our data suggest that social media were not the most important source of election news and even the most widely circulated news stories were seen by only a small fraction of Americans,' authors Hunt Allcott and Matthew Gentzkow said.

The research dispels the notion that defamatory stories about Hillary Clinton may have cost her the election.

The media has been aflame recently trying to stretch the facts — personnel changes and some unhappy employees in the midst of a major governmental transition — to fit the narrative of a State Department on the verge of collapse.

The U.S. Politician Who Could Become Second Abraham Lincoln

There are several reasons why the progressive Tulsi Gabbard stands an extraordinarily good likelihood of repeating the extraordinary achievement of the progressive Abraham Lincoln.

The electoral defeat of a liberal Hillary Clinton in 2016, and the widespread recognition of the fact that a progressive Bernie Sanders as the Democratic candidate would have stood a far higher probability of beating Donald Trump than Clinton did, combines with an equally widespread recognition that the Democratic Party’s corrupted leadership by Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton brought enormous harm to the Democratic Party by actually cheating the stronger and more progressive candidate Sanders out of the Party’s nomination, so that competition has already begun within the Democratic Party, to determine whom the Party should nominate in 2020 to run against President Donald Trump.
