COLUMBIA (AP) – Most doctors in South Carolina will soon be required to consult a database of patients’ medical history as a way to combat the state’s rampant prescription painkiller problem.

“Since bats are such an important natural form of insect pest control, feasting on agricultural pests such as corn borers, June bugs, gypsy moths, grain moths, cutworm moths, potato beetles and even grasshoppers, it is in our own best interests to … Read the rest
