Safety technology leads to fewer driving fatalities

Individuals in New York can reduce the chance that they will be in a fatal car accident by spending less time in the car and taking advantage of available safety technology. Driving remains one of the most dangerous activities most people engage in although one study from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration shows that since 1960, the number of lives saved by safety technology, including seat belts, has increased.

Early detection of prostate cancer declines

New York health care providers are among those who have been affected by changing recommendations for cancer screening. A conclusion made by the United States Preventive Services Task Force in 2012 noted that PSA testing to screen for prostate cancer was potentially causing more problems than it was solving due to issues such as unnecessary surgical procedures and radiation activity. These problems typically occurred in men who were not at a significant risk of death due to the slow-growing nature of the cancers involved.

Common misdiagnosis of aspirin allergy

Many New York residents who have cardiovascular disease treat it with aspirin. However, according to a new study, many patients who have been told they have an aspirin allergy and cannot use it for treatment may not be allergic. The study was presented at the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology Annual Scientific Meeting

Levels of spinal cord injury determine symptoms

An individual involved in a serious accident in New York might wonder about the implications if the spinal cord has been injured. A complete injury can be especially serious due to the irreparable nature of the situation. An incomplete injury may result in some permanent damage, but there may be an opportunity for improvement. The level at which an injury occurs determines the severity of the impact on one's activities of daily living.

Public service efforts to reduce underage drunk driving

New York residents may recognize the dangers of drunk driving, but young drivers may still be tempted to take to the road after consuming alcohol. Statistics indicate that an estimated 25 percent of fatal crashes involving young drivers involve alcohol. All states in the nation have set the minimum drinking age at 21, but underage access to alcohol continues to be an issue that carries over into driving activity.
