How Can I Prevent Date Rape?

Sexual assault is all too common in our society. Women have to be wary in many social situations, especially at bars and parties. This is sad, but true.

From a life insurance underwriting point of you, the trauma of rape can pose enormous challenges. Conditions ranging from PTSD to depression to job dysfunction may have to be addressed. Coverage is often possible, but the broker needs to be extremely sensitive and knowledgeable when working for potential applicants with this history.

Fortunately, American inventiveness is making it easier to prevent one prevalent form of attack: date rape. Four enterprising (male!) students at North Carolina State University have created a nail polish that can detect common date rape drugs. When wearing the polish, all a woman needs to do is stir a drink with her finger to make sure it has not been contaminated.
