Medical Fact: You should throw away the cotton in your medication bottles

Believe it or not, that little ball of cotton that comes in your bottle of pills, which is there to keep pills safe during shipping, is meant to be removed. It can collect moisture because of its absorbent nature, which makes your pills deteriorate faster.
I had no idea about the cotton ball in pill bottles! I'll definitely be removing it from now on to keep my pills in better shape.
