FILE - In this March 24, 2015 file photo, a syringe is pictured along West Main Street in downtown Austin, Ind., in Scott County, Ind. The long decline in HIV infections among white people who inject drugs has stalled, another grim side effect of the nation’s drug abuse epidemic. Health officials released the news Tuesday, Nov. 29, 2016, as part of a call for more use of needle exchange programs. Last year rural Scott County experienced an HIV outbreak, in which more than 100 injection drug users were infected. The state’s governor at the time - Mike Pence, now the vice president-elect - declared a public health emergency and authorized a limited need-exchange program to prevent the virus from spreading further.

Instead, they say there's an epidemic of needless testing and too many people taking too many pills for a deficiency that very few people truly have. (AP Photo/Mark Lennihan)
