How a Billionaire-Backed IUD Is Fighting the GOP War on Women's Bodies

LilettaIf you’re looking for empirical evidence that the GOP and its “pro-life” boosters are less anti-abortion than they are anti-sex, look no further than the case of Liletta.

The new intrauterine device became available in April, and family planning clinics around the country began stocking it, often in bulk, this summer.

Liletta is everything a contraceptive should be: affordable, safe, effective, and for now—thanks to the backing of a well-known billionaire—widely accessible. Studies prove the IUD reduces rates of unplanned pregnancies, and it’s been shown to decrease the number of teen abortions.

WHO study: Processed meat causes cancer

Processed meat causes cancerBacon, hot dogs, corned beef and other types of processed red meat significantly increase the risk for developing cancer, and all types of red meat "probably" increase the risk as well, according to a new report from the World Health Organization.

The WHO's International Agency for Research on Cancer, or IARC, report is based on decades of research, though its conclusions were far from unanimous among members of the panel. The report also is expected to be controversial in Western countries, especially the United States, where red meat is a staple of most people's basic diet.

How insurance providers deny hepatitis C patients lifesaving drugs

Harvoni denied to patients 'not sick enough'Amber Rojas was almost eight months pregnant when she learned she had hepatitis C. After her daughter was born on Dec. 23, 2014, Rojas had hoped to start treatment with a newly approved, highly effective drug called Harvoni.

After filing for prior authorization and waiting for months, the 34-year old mother received an unwelcome letter on August 27, 2015 — her treatment request had been denied because her liver was still too healthy. Rojas said that even though she felt very sick with flu-like symptoms, her insurance provider deemed her “not sick enough to qualify.”

Smoking deaths in chinaResearch published in the medical journal The Lancet says one in three of all the young men in China are likely to die from tobacco, but that the number can fall if the men quit smoking.
