Roughly 1 in 4 20-year-olds will be disabled before retirement

This may sound hyperbolic and surprising, but about 25 percent of today's 20-year-olds will suffer some sort of disability before they reach retirement age. As a result, they may be forced to take fewer shifts at work or to leave the workforce completely. That puts an obvious financial strain on the individual, as well as a huge burden on them physically and emotionally.

Workplace accident injures numerous workers, some critically

Serious workplace accidents happen all the time. It's an unfortunate reality, but it is our reality nonetheless. When these workplace accidents occur, there are a lot of questions that need to be asked by investigators. Did the workplace have previous violations for safety?

But as the years have passed and the research into the condition has increased, much more is known about fibromyalgia now.
