Chiropractic schools across the nation are graduating students this time of year. There are Homecomings and Lyceum’s in Iowa, South Carolina, California, and other US states that are home to chiropractic colleges. Educational institutions that teach chiropractic typically hold graduation ceremonies two and three times throughout the year and summer appears to be the popular time for most chiropractic graduations.

A vaccine manufacturer, operating a plant in the state of Pennsylvania, received a regulatory warning from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) involving multiple quality-control observations made after review of the manufacturing plant, at the company’s West Point facility.
Everyone seems to be picking on the poor Food and Drug Administration (FDA) these days, but for vastly different reasons. To the hundreds of thousands of victims (including dead ones) of adverse prescription drug reactions each year, and their families, the FDA is failing to protect the public. These people believe the agency should spend more time and effort making sure drugs are safe and effective before approval.
