Majority of sunscreens tested would flunk proposed FDA safety tests, report to say

(CNN)Nearly two-thirds of all sunscreens evaluated by the Environmental Working Group would not pass safety tests proposed by the US Food and Drug Administration, the consumer advocacy group will announce next week. “Even though we’ve come up with similar results in our guide before, comparing it to the FDA’s actual proposed standards is really strong,” Leiba said. “So the fact that 60% of the market seemingly wouldn’t be considered safe and effective by the FDA is a huge deal.” The big deal of skin cancer Skin cancer strikes more Americans each year than all other cancers combined. Melanoma, the most deadly form, accounts for only 1% of all skin cancers, but most of the deaths, according to the American Cancer …

Brooks Koepka clinches fourth major at PGA Championship

(CNN)The coronation had more spice than he would have liked, but Brooks Koepka held his nerve to seal back-to-back PGA Championship titles to confirm his status as a once-in-a-generation player. Rowdier elements of the already raucous New York crowd chanted “DJ, DJ” at Koepka as they sensed late sport in the bearpit of Bethpage Black. Memories raced back to other famous collapses, such as Jordan Spieth’s Masters misfortunes when he squandered a five-shot lead with nine to play in 2016. Or the similar Augusta agonies of Rory McIlroy or Greg Norman. But with Koepka at his mercy, Johnson faltered at the 16th and 17th to finish six under, and though Koepka dropped a shot at the 17th he had done …

Heart scan ‘picks up sudden death risk’

Footballer Fabrice Muamba had a near-fatal cardiac arrest during a match while David Frost’s son Miles died suddenly while jogging aged 31, for example. Yet many of those with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, or HCM, have few or no warning symptoms – and some are able to lead perfectly normal lives. Kick-start required The research team focused on detecting those at risk of sudden death, by looking for abnormal fibre patterns in the heart which could lead to potentially deadly heart rhythms. This is thought to affect around 1% of people with the condition. They can then have a small device implanted in their heart to kick-start it into beating again when an abnormal heart rhythm is detected. ‘I had this time-bomb …

Steve Mnuchin Can’t Answer Basic Questions About IRS Presidential Audits

Sen. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) asked Mnuchin during a hearing if the mandatory presidential audit would encompass previous tax years if the person who became president had been under audit for those years. Mnuchin’s inability to answer such a basic question about the IRS’ presidential audits comes on the heels of his refusal to comply with a federal law allowing congressional tax-writing committees to obtain any person’s tax returns. Mnuchin rejected Neal’s lawful request by insinuating that the committee’s interest in IRS presidential tax audits was merely a pretext to obtain and disseminate Trump’s tax returns for partisan political purposes. If Democrats really wanted to know about presidential audits, Mnuchin said in a letter last month, “we would be happy …

I Hope Hannah B. Doesn’t Get Engaged On ‘The Bachelorette’ Here’s Why Betches

Whatever your feelings are on the new Bachelorette pick, I think we can agree: the last few seasons have been severely lacking. Becca Kufrin and Rachel Lindsay handled themselves with grace, don’t get me wrong. But they also both wound up with supremely disappointing mates: Becca’s, a man who liked memes so offensive they made my eyes water; and Rachel’s, well, a man who isn’t Peter Kraus. (This is not just Peter-favoritism; Vulture, The New Yorker, and The New York Times all agree with me.) On the flip side, the last two Bachelor seasons have ended with our suitor saying “f*ck it” and doing whatever he wants, regardless of how it messes with show protocol or their runner-ups’ emotions. And sadly, I have more faith in both of …
