Tobacco Product Regulation " A Public Health Approach
The Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act provides the FDA with the authority to regulate tobacco products. Drs. Lawrence Deyton, Joshua Sharfstein, and Margaret Hamburg from the FDA describe the implementation of this law.
No, Oristar, it means that all the persons listed are doctors.
And they are probably all males except for Margaret Hamburg. The abbreviation is gender-neutral.
i think not
You also apparently think you can speak English properly. The evidence of your posts gives that the lie.
I believe English is the holy grail in the forest of languages. To serve as its guardian is a great honor.
what is the difference between the followings!?
Dr vs Dr.
Drs vs Drs.
It's correct to use the period after an abbreviation. It is becoming more common to leave it off, but I suggest you continue to use Dr. and Drs.
I may be wrong on this, but I think American usage has consistently been to use the perior (or "full stop" depending on what continent you're from), whereas Brit usage has generally been to omit it (tho, see above, this may be changing). I know I've seen the period-less usage in books from England, which kind of surprised me.
make that "period", not "perior".
You are right, good fellow... in that you may be wrong... good form!
