NJ Dentist Must Face Claims He Caused Man’s Addiction

Ella Castle

Law360 (November 13, 2020, 9:59 PM EST) — A New Jersey appeals court on Friday revived a dental patient’s lawsuit alleging a dentist caused his nitrous oxide addiction by administering too much of the drug during his treatment, reasoning that the patient’s claims were plausible.

A two-judge Appellate Division panel reversed the dismissal of a suit accusing Dr. Ira J. Zohn and Advanced Endodontic Associates of negligently administering nitrous oxide to patient Bruce Ampolsky from 2013 to 2017 beyond what was medically necessary for any dental treatment which caused him to become addicted and suffer injuries requiring medical treatment.

How Some Skinks Lost Their Legs and Then Evolved New Ones

Ella Castle

In the rainforest in the Philippines, scientists laid out a tiny racetrack, just for skinks.

The racetrack and the high speed cameras surrounding it were part of research into a mysterious state of affairs. Skinks are lizards, but some species have lost their limbs over eons of evolution, giving them a snakelike look. However, other skinks whose ancestors jettisoned limbs have, for reasons still unknown, brought them back. They break an old rule of thumb in evolutionary biology, which holds that if you lose a complicated structure, you are unlikely to evolve it back.

Now, the researchers behind the racetrack

Hospital bills for uninsured COVID patients are covered, but no one tells them

When Darius Settles died from COVID-19 on the Fourth of July, his family and the city of Nashville, Tennessee, were shocked. Even the mayor noted the passing of a 30-year-old without any underlying conditions — one of the city’s youngest fatalities at that point.

Settles was also uninsured and had just been sent home from an emergency room for the second time, and he was worried about medical bills. An investigation into his death found that, like many uninsured COVID-19 patients, he had never been told that cost shouldn’t be a concern.

Back at the end of June, Settles and
