By Scott Malone BOSTON (Reuters) - A Massachusetts man detained under a terrorism probe faces charges in federal court on Wednesday, federal prosecutors said, as local media reported the man and an associate who police shot dead on Tuesday had planned to try to behead a police officer. Police arrested the man, named as David Wright by a spokeswoman for U.S. Attorney for Massachusetts Carmen Ortiz, in Everett, outside Boston. Officers working with the Joint Terrorism Task Force earlier shot and killed Usaamah Abdullah Rahim, who had been under 24-hour surveillance, after police say he confronted them with a knife.
Many patients skip prescribed drugs after a heart attack
By Lisa Rapaport (Reuters Health) - Many patients who survive a heart attack don’t consistently take medications prescribed to prevent it from happening again, a large U.S. study suggests. Researchers asked 7,425 patients how often they took all the drugs physicians prescribed shortly after their heart attack, and about 2,150 of them confessed to following doctors’ orders only some of the time. While each patient may have unique motivations for deciding whether or not to take medications, it’s not uncommon for people who skip doses or fail to fill prescriptions to do so because they misunderstand the role of pills in preventing another heart attack, fear side effects, or lack funds to pay for drugs, lead author Dr. Robin Mathews told Reuters Health in an email.
