      CVS to Stop Selling Tobacco Products

      The nation's second-largest drugstore chain said Wednesday that it will phase out cigarettes, cigars and chewing tobacco by Oct. 1, a move that will cost about $2 billion in annual revenue but won't affect its 2014 earnings forecast. CVS Caremark leaders say removing tobacco will help them grow the company's business of working with doctors, hospitals and other care providers to improve customers' health.

      "We've come to the conclusion that cigarettes have no place in a setting where health care is being delivered," he said.

      American Teens: Live Fast, Die Hard

      The teenage years should come with a warning label:  Being an American teen may case early death. At least, that’s the gist of a new study published in the British medical Journal “Lancet.” The study of teenage behavior in developed, higher income countries, indicates that U.S. teens tend to live faster and die harder than kids of the same age in other countries.
