    The US Food and Drug Administration issued a warning to consumers Wednesday to stop using over-the-counter teething products that contain benzocaine.

  • Hawaii lava finally reaches the Pacific — only to create another deadly danger

    First it was catastrophic lava. Then it was sulfur dioxide. Now Big Island residents have yet another danger to worry about.
