The world's 1.3 billion smokers soon might have a powerful new way to kick the habit -- a vaccine against nicotine. Nearly 60 percent of smokers who achieved high levels of antibodies against nicotine after receiving the vaccine stopped smoking completely for at least six months, according to a new study presented Saturday at a meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology in Orlando, Fla. About one-third of those who developed lower levels of antibodies stopped smoking, about the same fraction as those who received a placebo vaccine.

Is "too much screen time" really a problem?
Yes -- smartphone addiction is ruining relationships.
Yes -- but primarily due to parents' failure to regulate kids' use.
Possibly -- long-term effects on health are not yet known.
Not really -- lack of self-discipline and good judgement are the problems.
No -- angst over "screen time" is just the latest overreaction to technology.
No -- what matters is the quality of content, not the time spent viewing it.
