Though many people use anti-inflammatories like ibuprofen for a headache, they don't come without side effects, and some people aren't supposed to take these drugs. Ibuprofen puts people at risk of bleeds in the gastrointestinal tract and kidney damage. Using the drug in high doses also seems to raise blood pressure and increase the risk of heart attack and stroke — one reason the FDA recently warned that people should only use ibuprofen (and other "nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs," NSAIDS, like naproxen) for short periods of time and in small amounts. Yet ibuprofen (as well as naproxen) has been found in a number of supplements.

Post-World War II reconstruction has changed the face of one of Europe’s largest ports, where striking, cubed architecture gives shape to the most modern skyline in the country. But it’s not done yet. This is a banner year for ribbon cuttings to celebrate both new and reconfigured space: An overhaul of Rotterdam Centraal train station in March has already unveiled a new shop-lined pedestrian passageway and the city’s first Starbucks. The renovated Kunsthal museum reopened in February. François Geurds, chef of the two-Michelin-starred restaurant FG , opened another restaurant in January. Come December, the massive arch of the Markthal, whose interior displays 3-D food photographs, becomes the country’s first indoor food hall. Need a launching pad? Check into a brand-new gem: the Rem Koolhaas-designed nhow hotel.
