The feds say that the weight loss drug lorcaserin causes cancer

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a recall of a popularly prescribed weight loss medication last week. The federal agency did so after discovering that lorcaserin, a drug that is more commonly known by its brand name Belviq, may put patients who take it at a higher risk for developing cancer.

What happens when the FDA recalls a medical device?

When a medical professional advises a patient to consent to the implantation of a medical device, it is because the doctor believes it will improve the health of the patient. The use of these devices is common, and patients trust that they will help with a specific medical condition. Unfortunately, they are not always safe, and it is necessary for the Food and Drug Administration to issue a recall.

What dangers do inexperienced truckers pose?

Trucking companies have been warning of an impending problem for years. Veteran truck operators are retiring, and there are too few younger drivers looking to fill their spots. This has resulted in recruiters becoming less selective when making hiring decisions. Many of the truckers that they do hire lack experience. This concerns many traffic safety analysts.
