Is Kris Humphries Getting Paid To Be Sick?

Kris Humphries Cold-EEZE

Wow. Product placement much? LOLz!

Kris Humphries was spotted leaving a Minneapolis pharmacy while carrying a little bit too clearly visible box of Cold-EEZE, a cold remedy clinically proven to shorten the duration of the common cold.

Hmm…we wonder if he was PAID to skip the bag and non-chalantly flash the logo of cold medicine to photographers?

Nah, the pharmacy was probably just out of Vicks. Hope that stuff helps you get rid of those "sniffles", Kris!

Squirrel Won't Leave New York CVS

Filed under: Cuteness!FunnySquirrel

A cute little squirrel snuck into a New York City CVS pharmacy.

The fuzzy rodent was loose in the store for three days, scavenging what it could from the snack aisle.

Eventually, workers cornered it in a glass display in the front window then called the cops.

Check out the above video for some squirrelly cuteness.

Walgreens To Begin Selling Health Insurance

If you'll be shopping for a new health insurance plan this fall, head over to your neighborhood Walgreens.

Sources say the largest drugstore chain in the United States is planning on offering health insurance products with various price ranges and coverage levels from all across the nation through a private health insurance exchange.

Without confirming the rumors, a spokesperson for the company said:

"As always, we're looking at a number of options in light of health care reform as we continue to seek ways to help our customers better navigate today's health care system."

Experts suggest retail companies are in a position to cash in by offering insurance through private exchanges in light of health care reform, saying:

"For retailers, [creating a private insurance exchange] is a way to generate more revenue from a new business. Those companies that get their exchanges up and running before 2014 could also succeed in stealing customers away from the public exchanges."

Sources believe Walgreens is in a particularly good position to become a "one-stop shop for all healthcare needs" because the company is already the #1 seller of pharmacy,health and beauty products.

It's best to pay full price for some things in life, and this is def one of those things!

The FDA has issued a consumer alert, warning pet owners about purchasing discounted pet drugs online.

Here are some of the main points presented by the FDA:

-Legit companies require a veterinarian prescription note for drugs

-Online companies will sometimes sell expired, unapproved, and counterfeit products

-Frequent use of nonsteroidal anti-flammatory drugs (pain relievers) can cause internal bleeding problems for pets

-Heartworm drugs given to dogs that are infected with parasites can lead to serious complications

-If you are going to buy pet drugs online, only do so at sites that are Vet-VIPPS accredited pharmacy sites

As a general rule, do the right thing and make sure to take your pet to the veterinarian.

Ordering pet drugs online is just not worth the risk!
