Medicine Cabinet Is The WORST Place To Store Medicine

Filed under: HealthMedicine

Your Reaction?

For many of us, it may be time to empty out our medicine cabinets and put our medications somewhere cooler!

Bathrooms are filled with moisture and heat, which led pharmacists to name medicine cabinets the WORST place to store medicine.

Medicine should not only be stored at room temperature (between 68 and 77 degrees), but kept away from the moisture fogging up your mirror after a hot shower.

Not only may drugs lose their effectiveness, but could even become HARMFUL if the chemistry changes.

Selig Corman, director of Professional Affairs at the Pharmacists Society of the State of New York, says:

"An egg kept at an extreme temperature of heat becomes cooked and that could happen with tablets, with certain gelatin capsules, and that could alter the chemistry of the product. Something as simple as aspirin … when aspirin reacts with moisture it becomes a different chemical … something that is sold as a corn remover. You wouldn't want to ingest a corn remover."

Yuck! Maybe it's time we stop calling the bathroom cabinet a "medicine cabinet"!

Check out the video above for more details about the dangers of storing medication in places with too high (or low) of a temperature!

Should Parents Allow Teenagers To Have Sex At Home?

We hope you're logged in and ready to comment because we have a feeling this will get a lot of people talking!

The View's Elisabeth Hasselbeck ventured into VERY debatable territory with her most recent story for ABC's Good Morning America, in which she explored the question, "Should parents ALLOW their teenagers to have sex in their home?"

She interviewed a group of parents, as well as a group of teenagers between the ages 15 and 19, and those in favor or against the idea may surprise you!

Check out the video above, which explores the idea of allowing children to practice safe sex at home as opposed to secret sex with secret people elsewhere, and weigh in on the debate below!

Would U allow your teenagers to engage in sexual activity with their significant others behind closed doors in your house?

Conversely, did U grow up or currently live in a house where parents allow (or at least don't try to stop) sex? Also, would U even WANT to have sex anywhere NEAR your parents? LOLz!

Oscar Nominated Restrepo Co-Director Killed In Libya

restrepo co director tim hetherington killed in libya

Such a tragedy!

Less than two months after the Academy Awards ceremony, Oscar nominated Restrepo co-director Tim Hetherington has been killed in Libya while documenting fighting between Gaddafi's forces and rebels.

Along with Tim, Getty photographer Chris Hondros is in "extremely critical condition" following a severe brain injury from a mortar attack. Just awful! We hope he recovers.

Here's what ABC News' James Goldston had to say about Hetherington:

"Tim was one of the bravest photographers and filmmakers I have ever met. During his shooting for the Nightline specials he very seriously broke his leg on a night march out of a very isolated forward operating base that was under attack. He had the strength and character to walk for four hours through the night on his shattered ankle without complaint and under fire, enabling that whole team to reach safety."

Such a brave, fearless man whose work has impacted many, many lives. He will be missed.

Our thoughts go out to Tim's family, friends, and peers during this difficult time.

Sorry, Jay! Nightline's Got You Beat!

Filed under: TV NewsJay Leno

nightline-ratings-up.jpg

We think this speaks volumes about where the country is at right now.

For the first in history, ABC News' Nightline is #1 in total viewership for its fourth quarter, beating out its competition with 3.93 million viewers, on average.

As for Jay Leno, which airs at the same time slot, he only averaged 3.88, which is only slightly better than David Letterman, whose Late Show averaged 3.6 million in total viewers.

But back to Nightline. The news show's ratings were up 16% in total viewers, 15% in adults 25-54 and 14% in the adults 18-49 demo (1.27 million) compared to the previous quarter.

Marvelous! Good to know people are getting invested in the news again. There's a lot going on in the world and its important we all take note.
