4 Your Health: Addicted babies on the rise; on the lookout for bedbugs

Posted: Updated:

Tucson- Nothing provokes disgust in travelers like the thought of bed bugs in their hotel room but most people don't know what the critters actually look like.

60 percent of travelers who were surveyed said they would switch hotels if there was any evidence of bed bugs. In fact, more than half said they would not even book a hotel that had just one online report of bed bugs.

Only a third of travelers could distinguish a bed bug from other common insects.

A new study reveals the number of newborns treated for opioid withdrawal more than quadrupled between 2003 and 2012. And the costs of caring for these babies has increased from 61 to $316 million a year.

The reason for those exploding costs is because infants exposed to opioids in the womb often require expensive medications and longer hospital stays.
