    Bio Firm May Have Found The Key To Solving Opioid Crisis - Separate The Part That Causes Euphoria
    San Francisco biopharmaceutical company Nektar Therapeutics is hoping to resolve the nation’s opioid epidemic with a new drug which can kill pain without causing addiction.  In human clinical testing, 2,100 patients across the nation—100 of which self-identified as recreational drug users—were given NKTR-181 and found that patients were less likely to abuse the drug than conventional opioids like oxycodone.  “We’re fairly certain it’s going to control pain really well,” Stephen Dobertsein,

    Pfizer Throwing In The Towel On Alzheimer’s And Parkinson’s Disease Research
    There have been so many failed drug trials around dementia drugs I was not surprised but I was so sad to read that Pfizer Inc. has announced that it is abandoning its costly and futile efforts to find effective drugs to treat Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.  About 300 people will be let go as a result of this change in strategy.   Regular readers of my blog know that both my father and my grandfather died from this terrible disease.  I am a big supporter of the Alzheimer’s Association, a

    If You Can Afford To, Wait Until You Are 70 Before Drawing Social Security Benefits
    There are many decisions you must face when approaching retirement age and perhaps the most important one is at what age you should start drawing benefits.  Many financial planners say that if you can afford to wait until you are aged 70, this is likely to be the best decision as people are living longer than ever and it will boost your retirement benefit until your death if you wait until the age of 70 to start collecting.  Believe it or not, your monthly benefit will be at least 76% higher if
