Too many vehicle accidents happen during highway merging

Ohio drivers may agree that there is an art to merging onto the highway. You need to have the correct speed, an eye for spacing and the ability to enter the flow of traffic seamlessly. Unfortunately, too many vehicle accidents occur during highway merging because some drivers fail to do it correctly.

Using J&J Baby Powder may result in asbestos exposure

That statement may seem a bit late in the game to Ohio consumers considering the fact that Johnson & Johnson faces a multitude of lawsuits due to allegations that a toxic material in its baby powder causes cancer. The company has vehemently denied these allegations. However, those claims may receive some credence due to the fact that J&J recently announced the recall of some of its bottles of baby powder due to the potential for asbestos exposure by consumers.

Ohio company recalls beef product for hazardous materials

Kenosha Beef International is based here in Ohio. Recently, the company recalled one of its products due to the presence of hazardous materials.

Speed often cited in fatal car accidents involving teens

Driving always looks easier when someone with experience does it. Point the vehicle in the right direction, press the gas pedal to go and the brake pedal to stop.

Many things can go wrong, and when inexperienced teenagers drive too fast, it could easily result in fatal car accidents.

Could an older Ohio home cause asbestos exposure?

Ohio homeowners who want to renovate their homes may want to use caution. Older homes here in the state could present a danger to them that they may not be aware of until it's too late.

Chain reaction vehicle accidents present an investigative problem

Investigators must follow the evidence wherever it might lead.

FDA says an OTC heartburn medication could cause cancer

If you are like many other heartburn sufferers here in Ohio, you probably take an over the counter medication for relief. If your medication of choice happens to be Zantac, whose generic version is called Ranitidine, the Food and Drug Administration says you could end up with cancer. According to the FDA, this heartburn medication contains approximately 26,000 times the acceptable level of N-nitrosodimethylamine. 

Improper removal could lead to asbestos exposure

Many of the older buildings here in Ohio still contain toxic substances from materials used in their original construction. As long as they are not disturbed, those materials may not pose a danger to anyone, but during renovations or demolition of those structures, the chances of asbestos exposure means the careful removal of it in order to prevent it from doing harm to anyone. If not properly removed, asbestos could put numerous lives at risk.

Innocent people often pay the price in car accidents

No one is perfect and everyone makes mistakes from time to time. The problem is when those mistakes happen when operating a vehicle that weighs anywhere from one to 40 tons.
