Traumatic Brain Injuries in Children Linked to ADHD Years Later

Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) send over one million children, adolescents and young adults to the ER each year in the United States. A recent study suggested that TBI might be linked to an increased risk of attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) that does not appear for several years.

California Tanker Truck Crashes – Hazards on Our Highways

Over the past two years, serious California tanker trucks have claimed several lives and injured dozens in California.

Despite the relatively high number of California tanker truck crashes over the [...]
