New Acetaminophen Warning: Why Now?

A move by the Food and Drug Administration to add Stevens-Johnson Syndrome to a list of acetaminophen side effects comes one month after a Supreme Court ruling related to the rare but deadly skin disease.

Megan Welter, an Arizona Cardinals cheerleader, known for her stunts on the sidelines, is under arrest accused of assaulting her boyfriend.

Police said he recorded the fight with Welter, 29, an Iraq War veteran who spent 16 months there, on his cell phone.
