CBS Boston reported on Thursday that the researchers looked at the short-term effects of flavoring chemicals used in e-cigarettes and discovered that flavor additives are directly toxic to blood vessels. Over time, they said, the chemicals could lead to heart and blood vessel disease similar to that caused by traditional cigarettes. CBS Boston said the new research provides more reason for adults to avoid the popular product and for parents to discourage their children from using them.

A 50 year old Oregon woman is accused of trying to murder her mother in a bizarre series of events. Kimberly Martin Hopkins arrived at her parents' Tennessee home unannounced on June 14 for a visit. She had not physically seen her parents in at least three years. At some point during the visit, Hopkins had put in an order for helium tanks with her mother's credit card. Officers said the three went to Tellico Village Community church on Sunday the 17th, and approximately 30 minutes into the service they said Hopkins left to go to a Target store in Maryville to buy clothing for herself with her mother's card. It was when she returned to her parent's home that things took a dangerous turn. Authorities said Hopkins took her mother into a bedroom away from her father and proceeded to give her a pedicure and a manicure. Deputies said she put lotion and then rubber gloves on her mother's hands, and then she bound her wrists together with plastic cable ties. She then put tape on her mother's chin and mouth, and at that point her mother said she became frightened of what was going on. Hopkins then put a plastic bag over her mother's head and exclaimed "I have your Alexandrite ring," according to deputies. The mother struggled and screamed, and was able to get up from the chair and to the door. Her husband then opened the door and she ran out. Officers said Hopkins grabbed her pedicure items and the helium tanks as she left the home and drove off in a white rental Jeep. Officers arrested Hopkins later that day. She is charged with attempted first degree murder, two counts of fraud and two counts of theft. She is being held in the Loudon County jail on a combined bond of $762,000.
