Newer Hip Implants No Better Than Older Versions, Study Finds

Emerging research reveals that newer hip implants offer no significant benefits over older devices. As a matter-of-fact, studies are finding that older versions might be safer and more long lasting than some newer versions; this according to a study funded by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA).

This early research is among the first to look at different outcomes for various artificial hip devices constructed with different materials, said WebMD. Researchers reviewed data on total hip replacements from different studies and national registries and concluded that no advantages exist in the newer metal-on-metal or ceramic-on-ceramic devices, versus traditional metal-on-polyethylene or ceramic-on-polyethylene devices and that traditional devices work as well and, sometimes, even longer, as the newer generation, more expensive implants, noted WebMD.

NJ Assembly Commettee Approves Fracking Wastewater Bill

A New Jersey Assembly committee just approved a fracking wastewater bill that involves a ban on the treatment, disposal, or storage of waste produced by hydraulic fracturing.
