The bong industry is flooded with bongs made of cheap glass with wild claims of functionality attached to them. Many users avoid bongs simply because they have had bad experiences, however most bongs on the market today underperform due to lack of knowledge in bong designs or production methods.

Booster shots needed against omicron, CDC studies show

Three studies released Friday offered more evidence that COVID-19 vaccines are standing up to the omicron variant, at least among people who received booster shots.

They are the first large U.S. studies to look at vaccine protection against omicron, health officials said.

The papers echo previous research — including studies in Germany, South Africa and the U.K. — indicating available vaccines are less effective against omicron than earlier versions of the coronavirus, but also that boosters significantly improve protection.

The first study looked at hospitalizations and emergency room and urgent care center visits in 10 states, from August to this month.

It found vaccine effectiveness was best after three doses of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines in preventing COVID-19-associated emergency department and urgent care visits. Protection dropped from 94{f771d91d784324d4be731abc64bffe0d1fd8f26504ceb311bcfd8e5b001778f4} during the delta wave to 82{f771d91d784324d4be731abc64bffe0d1fd8f26504ceb311bcfd8e5b001778f4} during the omicron wave. Protection from just two doses was lower, especially if six months

Prevalence of coronary heart disease largely unchanged from 2011 to 2018

(HealthDay)—The prevalence of coronary heart disease (CHD) remained largely unchanged in the United States from 2011 to 2018, according to a research letter published online Jan. 19 in JAMA Cardiology.

Yi-Ting Hana Lee, M.P.H., from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, and colleagues used data from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (2011 to 2018) to assess recent trends in self-reported CHD prevalence.

The researchers found that based on data from nearly 3.6 million U.S. adults, there was no significant change in CHD prevalence during the study period. There were significant declines in prevalence in some geographic locations (Utah: absolute change, −1.09 percent; declines in the District of Columbia, California, and Nebraska approached significance), while other localities had significant increases (e.g., Oregon and West Virginia). There were small but statistically significant decreases observed in CHD prevalence among adults aged 65 years and older and among
