Tylenol in Pregnancy Doubles Risk of Autism

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Abnormal hormonal exposures in pregnancy can influence fetal brain development, and research published in 2014 warned acetaminophen is in fact a hormone disruptor

FAKE SCIENCE for COPS: Alcohol level breathalyzers based on sham science, shocking investigation discovers

Breathalyzer test results have long been considered a lynch pin of the criminal justice system.

As it turns out, breathalyzer testing is based on sham science, and most often, the results they produce are inaccurate.
