Car crash avoidance technologies can work, research finds

New Jersey drivers could be safer with the widespread use of collision avoidance technologies, the results of a study indicate. Research by the Insurance Institute on Highway Safety shows that systems like lane departure warning signals and blind spot alerts can help to seriously cut the rate of car accidents and especially those that cause injuries.

Failure to diagnose can make skin cancer much more dangerous

For New Jersey patients suffering from squamous cell skin cancer, one of the most important aspects of successful treatment is early detection. Squamous cell carcinoma has a very high cure rate with minimal damage when it is detected and removed.

Study finds common pipe repair method is hazardous

Utility workers in New Jersey and across the United States should be aware that a common method of pipe repair is more dangerous than previously thought, according to a study. The study was conducted by Purdue University researchers.

Fat shaming by doctors could be hazardous to patient health

New Jersey residents rely on their doctors to be honest, informative and accurate when giving them medical advice. But some psychologists believe that medical doctors may do harm if they cross the line from advising lifestyle changes to what could be classified as shaming their patients. At issue is fat shaming, which, according to research presented to the American Psychological Association, can damage patients mentally and physically and may be a form of malpractice.

Back injuries at work could lead to permanent disability

You may have worked for years with a certain company, whether it's a construction business or an iron works company. Day in and day out, you faithfully perform your duties. Then, one day, you turn to the side or straighten up and feel an unimaginable pain in your back. You can barely hold yourself up, let alone carry and handle materials. You may feel tempted to try to push through the pain, but doing so could result in an even worse injury.

Electric shock device could help drivers stay awake

Although New Jersey motorists may be aware of the dangers of drunk driving, many may not realize that drowsy driving can be just as dangerous. In fact, it is estimated that falling asleep at the wheel is the cause of thousands of fatal accidents around the country each year. While some people who regularly drive while drowsy rely on coffee and loud music to keep them awake, others are looking for a more permanent solution to the problem.
