'Medieval' diseases flare as unsanitary living conditions proliferate 

 

Jennifer Millar keeps trash bags and hand sanitizer near her tent, and she regularly pours water mixed with hydrogen peroxide on the sidewalk nearby. Keeping herself and the patch of concrete she calls home clean is a top priority.

But this homeless encampment off a Hollywood freeway ramp is often littered with needles and trash, and soaked in urine. Rats occasionally scamper through, and Millar fears the consequences.

"I worry about all those diseases," said Millar, 43, who said she has been homeless most of her life.

Infectious diseases — some that ravaged populations in the Middle Ages — are resurging in California and around the country, and are hitting homeless populations especially hard.

A dog potentially exposed more than 100 people to black plague in Colorado 

 

At least 116 people and 46 animals in Colorado were potentially exposed to the black plague after veterinarians struggled to diagnose a critically ill dog back in 2017.

The unusual case prompted health experts to issue an equally unusual—and perhaps startling—warning. That is, that dogs in the US may contract the deadly bacterial infection at any time of the year, and the signs may be hard to spot.

“[P]neumonic plague, although rare, should be considered in dogs that have fever and respiratory signs with potential exposure in disease-endemic areas, regardless of season and lobar [lung] distribution,” the Colorado health experts concluded. They published details of the case and their warning this week in the journal Emerging Infectious Diseases.

The plague is endemic to areas in the Western United States, meaning it circulates continually. Though it’s best known for causing the catastrophic Black Death pandemic in Europe during the fourteenth century, it arrived in the States around 1900 on rat-infested steam ships. Since then it has spread to, and quietly lurked in, rural rodent populations, including rock squirrels, wood rats, ground squirrels, prairie dogs, chipmunks, mice, voles, and rabbits. Infected populations tend to pop up in parts of Arizona, California, Colorado, Oregon, Nevada, and New Mexico. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that in recent decades there has been an average of seven human cases documented each year, with a range of one to 17 cases.

Judge bars unvaccinated students from returning to Rockland County school 

 

A federal judge in Rockland County, New York has jumped into the simmering debate over measles vaccinations. With cases rising, the judge barred 50 unvaccinated students from attending the Green Meadow Waldorf School for at least three weeks.

Parent Beatrice Burgis agrees with the judge's ruling that would keep unvaccinated kids at home.

"I believe that he's trying to mitigate a potential further outbreak and he's trying to keep everybody safe," she said.

On Tuesday, a new case in Rockland County brought the total to 146. This year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has reported 228 cases in 12 states. The Rockland County outbreak was centered in an Orthodox Jewish community.

Kentucky's hepatitis A outbreak claims another victim, raising the death toll to 44 

 

Kentucky's hepatitis A outbreak contributed to another death, bringing the outbreak's toll to 44, according to the latest weekly state report posted on Tuesday.

The nation's largest hepatitis A outbreak, declared in November 2017, has sickened 4,288 people and sent 2,065 of them to the hospital. The new report also shows cases continued a downward trend in rural Kentucky.

Dr. Charles Noplis, a psychiatrist focusing on addiction medicine, said many of the Kentuckians who die from hepatitis A are especially vulnerable because they have other health issues, such as hepatitis C. Among the general public, he said, death from hepatitis A is rare.

"I would've never guessed the deaths would be this high," said Noplis, who practices at Renew Recovery and sees patients in London, Kentucky. "I think it underscores the biggest issues at hand in the southeastern portion of the state. We need better health care, better education."

Texas company recalls contaminated water, unapproved herbs, then shuts down 
 

A second-generation family-run business operating out of Dimmitt, Texas, is no more. McDaniel Life-Line is closing up shop after issuing two recalls within a month for products found by federal regulators to be contaminated with a potentially dangerous bacteria or skin-burning ingredients that could potentially disfigure users.

All Life-Line Water, sold online to consumers in the U.S. and Canada, is being recalled after analysis by the Food and Drug Administration found the product to be tainted with pseudomonas aeruginosa, a bacteria that can cause blood infections in those with weakened immune systems, leading to serious illness or death.

Some Anti-Vaxxers Aren't Getting Their Pets Vaccinated. Here's Why That's So Dangerous 

 

Dogs can’t get autism, and even if they could, vaccines couldn’t cause it. Period. But some anti-vaxxers are increasingly making the same unfounded claims about pets and vaccines they’ve been repeating about children and vaccines for the past 20 years: that vaccines are unnecessary, dangerous and that they can cause a form of (canine) autism, along with other diseases. Just as with kids, that may be driving down pet vaccination rates. And the movement, while niche, shows no sign of stopping; in some states in the U.S., anti-vax activists have recently agitated to make state laws about mandatory pet vaccinations more lax.

9 Things You’re Doing In Your Sleep That Signal A Bigger Health Problem 

 

Your body is pretty adept at telling you when something is up—sniffles when you're sick, a toothache when you have a cavity. But you might not catch those signals, say, while you're sleeping.

Your body does all kinds of cool things during your nightly slumber sessions, like regulating hormones and repairing muscles, per the National Sleep Foundation. So it shouldn't come as a surprise that sleep can also give you clues about what's wrong in your overall health.

“We look at ‘good’ sleep as being about both quality and quantity of sleep,” says Beena Jani, MD, family medicine physician at Summit Medical Group in New Jersey. “Getting insufficient sleep can lead to chronic medical conditions, but poor sleep hygiene can also be a sign of health conditions, too.”

I'm talking about conditions like anxiety, depression, asthma, and heart disease (yes, really). If you’re doing any of these nine things in your sleep, it's time to listen up—your body could be trying to tell you something.

Senators hear from Ohio teenager who rebelled against parents by getting vaccinated 

 

Ethan Lindenberger, an Ohio teenager who has spoken out about growing up in an anti-vaccine household, told a Senate committee Tuesday that misinformation and fear put children at risk.

(MORE: Low vaccination rates a big factor in ongoing measles outbreak)
Lindenberger, 18, said growing up he never received standard vaccines that protect against diseases like chickenpox, hepatitis, measles, mumps, polio or rubella. In his prepared testimony, the high school senior described debates he’d had with his mother, who he has described as an “anti-vaccine advocate.” But by the time he became a legal adult, he said, he had educated himself on the topic and decided to seek inoculations on his own.

"Anti-vaccine parents and individuals are in no way evil. With that said, I will state that certain individuals and organizations which spread misinformation and instill fear into the public for their own gain selfishly put countless people at risk," Lindenberger said in written testimony.

Of his mother, Lindenberger told the committee: "Her love, affection, and care as a parent was used to push an agenda to create a false distress."

New measles cases discovered in Houston amid outbreaks elsewhere 

 

Three new cases of measles were confirmed by health officials in Houston on Monday, making it the latest city to have the once-eliminated disease appear in recent weeks.

The Houston outbreak comes as new cases of measles are being confirmed in Washington state on a daily basis, and other cases have been confirmed in Oregon, Georgia, and New York.

The new measles cases in Houston bring the total number of cases in Texas to six so far in 2019.

A number of specific details about the cases in Houston have not been publicly disclosed, including how it is believed that the individuals contracted the disease and if they were previously vaccinated.

Nectarines, peaches, plums recalled over possible listeria contamination 
 

Thousands of pieces of fruit have been recalled in 18 states because they may be contaminated with the harmful bacteria listeria, the Food and Drug Administration announced. New York-based Jac. Vandenberg, Inc. issued the recall for some of its nectarines, peaches and plums.

The company found listeria monocytogenes on some finished products through routine sampling, the FDA said. No illnesses have been reported.

The bacteria "can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems," the FDA said in its announcement. A listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths in pregnant women, according to the agency.

FDA warns about blood pressure medication shortages amid recalls 

 

Over the last six months, dozens of batches of medications used to treat high blood pressure have been recalled by the Food and Drug Administration over concerns that they may be contaminated with a cancer-causing chemical. On Friday, the FDA said there is currently a national shortage of the widely prescribed medication valsartan, and that other drugs used to treat high blood pressure could also become in short supply due to the ongoing recalls.

Several generic valsartan products sold in the U.S. have been found to be contaminated with the chemical NDMA, which has linked to cancer.

Gold Medal flour recalled over salmonella fears 
 

General Mills says it is voluntarily recalling 5-pound bags of Gold Medal Unbleached Flour nationwide due to concerns they might be contaminated with salmonella. The Minneapolis-based food giant says only bags with a "better if used by" date of April 20, 2020 are involved.

The callback was instituted after sampling of the five-pound bags discovered "the potential presence" of the bacteria, General Mills said in a statement. They added, "This recall is being issued out of an abundance of care as General Mills has not received any direct consumer reports of confirmed illnesses related to this product."
