Today's Globe: biolab scrutiny, pregnant women and fish, OxyContin suit, health records site, Dr. Marvin Krims
The US government does not conduct surprise inspections of laboratories handling the world's most dangerous organisms and poisons, but regulators said yesterday that that could change.
Women who are pregnant or breast-feeding should eat at least 12 ounces of fish and other seafood a week because the benefits for infant brain development outweigh any worries about mercury contamination, a group of US specialists said yesterday.
Kentucky officials yesterday sued the manufacturer of OxyContin, the prescription painkiller dubbed "hillbilly heroin," because of widespread abuse in Appalachia.
Dr. Marvin B. Krims, a Newton psychiatrist for almost 50 years who was a specialist in the psychoanalytic interpretations of Shakespeare, died Monday in his home of complications from lung cancer. He was 79.
