FDA approves headache headband
The Food and Drug Administration said Tuesday it approved a nerve-stimulating headband as the first medical device to prevent migraine headaches. The device, called Cefaly, is a battery-powered plastic band worn across the forehead. The band emits a low electrical current to stimulate nerves associated with migraine pain. The device is designed to be used no more than 20 minutes a day by patients 18 years and older. In a study, the device reduced migraines but did not prevent them.
Obama designates 1oth monument
President Barack Obama used his executive authority Tuesday to designate his 10th national monument, a 1,665-acre nature preserve on the northern California coast. The action expands the California Coastal National Monument in Mendocino County that President Bill Clinton created in 2000. The proclamation ensures that ranching, outdoor recreation and research will continue in the area.
