After years being one of the most obese states, Ohio is finally on the decline.  On a national scale, Suicide rates have risen drastically in the past decade or so.  Depression may be going unnoticed in most adult sufferers. Also, the FDA has released new regulations banning 19 chemicals from future use, specifically those found in antibacterial soap.  The cosmetic industry could enter a battle with the FDA concerning future regulations.
