Private contractors received $102 million to review Medicaid fraud data, yet had only found about $20 million in overpayments since 2008, according to a new report by the federal government.

"Significant federal and state resources are being poured in but only limited results are coming out," said Ann Maxwell, a regional inspector general for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The audits were found to be so ineffective they were stopped or put on hold, according to a report by the Government Accountability Office. The agency studied Medicaid audits performed by 10 companies.

Lugging bags of potting soil, turning compacted flower beds and pulling hard-to-reach weeds offer plenty of exercise, but when these tasks are done incorrectly they can result in stiff and sore joints along with muscle, neck and back pain.

Chiropractors and other specialists who treat people for aches and pains often see a surge in business after the weekends from people who try to get all their gardening done in one go. The association's public awareness program, called "plant and rake without the ache," was launched because chiropractors were seeing so many patients with aching backs from gardening.

The Durbin amendment, # 2127, to S.B.3187 to reauthorize the FDA Prescription Drug and the Medical Device User Fees has failed on the Senate floor.

The Durbin amendment would have heaped yet more reporting requirements on supplement manufacturers with those companies who launched, reformulated, or discontinued supplements having to report those products and any changes within thirty days of the launch, reformulation, or change.

Tension headaches usually begin with some tension in the neck and shoulders and by evening, the tension turns into a headache that is oftentimes at the base of the skull. Unfortunately, a lot of our daily activities are going to predispose many of us to getting these type of headaches.

The article is currently used as reference material by a prominent group of Australian doctors, medical researchers, and scientists who are trying to curb what they refer to as pseudosciences, like
