    UN World Health Organization Bans Life Jackets

    The World Health Organization has today issued a recommendation to ban the use of life jackets world wide, after research showed they are not 100% effective.

    At this point not enough is known about the long-term effects of life jackets, and we are concerned that their wide-spread use encourages risky behaviour around large bodies of water, leading to more drownings and near-drownings.

    Until life jackets can be proven 100% safe and effective, we recommend banning their use. Drowning people should instead simply get out of the water.

    Pharma donations should be viewed as skeptically as political parties receiving tobacco company donations.
