Ending the HIV/AIDS Epidemic Only Happens if Black America Leads 

 

The underpinning of the administration’s plan is the recent surveillance data that shows that 50 percent of the U.S. epidemic is in 48 counties, Washington D.C., and San Juan, Puerto Rico, and seven states that have a substantial rural population living with HIV. While there is no question that focusing on the jurisdictions with the highest HIV burden makes sense, we must ask if focusing on geography alone — the where — will unlock the mystery of ending the HIV epidemic.

But with 60 percent of the Black HIV epidemic lying within the aforementioned jurisdictions, can we end the HIV/AIDS epidemic without also focusing on the other W’s, the who and the what?

The doctor will accuse you now 

 

A recent essay in Time Magazine called for a massive expansion of the nanny state through mandatory medical screening of children for signs of child abuse. The proposal, which is based on the assumption that racial bias is causing doctors to miss some cases of abuse, would strip doctors of the ability to apply reasoned, clinical judgment to cases and would require them to subject children to a battery of x-rays whenever bruising or other marks are noticed. Proponents of the plan — not its opponents, mind you — have given it the appropriately dystopian moniker, “think less, screen more.”

Perhaps as shocking as the plan itself is how nonchalant the essay’s authors, Dr. Richard Klasco and Dr. Daniel Lindberg, are about the life-altering consequences of their proposal. In an apparent attempt to downplay the harm that their plan will cause, Klasco and Lindberg wrongly suggest that the worst that will happen if they get their way is “some non-abused children will be screened, and some non-abusive parents will be offended.”

Massachusetts Man Reportedly in a Coma After Contracting Brain Infection From a Mosquito 

 

A rare, sometimes fatal viral infection spread by mosquitoes has resurfaced in Massachusetts—and has likely sent at least one man into a coma. Over the weekend, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health reported that a local resident contracted the Eastern equine encephalitis (EEE) virus. Dozens of communities remain at critical or high risk for the virus, and residents are being advised to stay indoors at night.

Here's what happens to your body when you cut out dairy 

 

Making any change to your diet, whether large or small, can be nerve-wracking. When your body has become so accustomed to consuming and digesting a product, it can be concerning to completely eliminate it. One product that more and more people seem to be cutting out is dairy.

Whether you want to cut out dairy for ethical reasons, because consuming it doesn't make your body feel great anymore, or because you've seen it have a positive impact on others — such as with celebrity Khloe Kardashian who credits the elimination of dairy for part of her weight loss— this could be a great choice for you. There's a lot you need to consider, however, before you make the leap, including how your body could react.

Here's what could happen to your body if you cut our dairy.

More than half of U.S. beaches have fecal bacteria, environmentalists say 
 

While Massachusetts beachgoers may be worried about sharks this summer, environmentalists are warning about a much smaller organism. E. coli, a bacteria present in animal and human waste, could hurt many more people—and it shows up on half of America's beaches, according to new research from Environment America and the Frontier Group.

Half the beaches in the U.S. have at least one day per summer season in which it's not safe to swim because of elevated bacteria levels in the water, according to a report the group released recently. Some states had it much worse. In Louisiana, all of the 24 beach sites sampled were potentially unsafe for at least one day last summer. In Mississippi, all 21 of 21 beach sites sampled were.

There are several ways for bacteria to get into water, but two of the most common ones are overflows from sewage treatment plants or runoff during heavy rain.

Playing video games does not make you a mass shooter, expert says 
 

During a speech on Monday addressing the recent mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio, President Trump call for an end to — or substantial reduction of — the "glorification" of violence in "gruesome and grisly" video game culture. While some are quick to blame video games for real-life acts of violence, experts say there is no such link.

"When it comes to actual serious criminal violence, there's virtually no evidence that video games matter," James Ivory, professor and research director at Virginia Tech, told CBS News.

Ivory has researched the social and psychological dimensions of media, particularly the content and effects of video games. He says he's determined that a lot of things influence violent crime — but the media we consume is not one of them.

First human-monkey chimera raises concern among scientists 
 

Efforts to create human-animal chimeras have rebooted an ethical debate after reports emerged that scientists have produced monkey embryos containing human cells.

A chimera is an organism whose cells come from two or more “individuals”, with recent work looking at combinations from different species. The word comes from a beast from Greek mythology which was said to be part lion, part goat and part snake.

The latest report, published in the Spanish newspaper El País, claims a team of researchers led by Prof Juan Carlos Izpisúa Belmonte from the Salk Institute in the US have produced monkey-human chimeras. The research was conducted in China “to avoid legal issues”, according to the report.

Chimeras are seen as a potential way to address the lack of organs for transplantation, as well as problems of organ rejection. Scientists believe organs genetically matched to a particular human recipient could one day be grown inside animals. The approach is based on taking cells from an adult human and reprogramming them to become stem cells, which can give rise to any type of cell in the body. They are then introduced into the embryo of another species.

Florida health officials declare public health emergency for hepatitis A 

 

Martin and Brevard counties are among 17 in Florida "critically impacted" by the hepatitis A virus.

They're the main concern for Florida Department of Health officials and the reason the state's surgeon general declared a 'public health emergency' Thursday evening.

Florida Surgeon General Dr. Scott Rivkees said Friday he believes the declaration will make people take the matter more seriously. The number of people diagnosed with hepatitis A in Florida keeps increasing, he said.

ARE YOUR PALM TREES HARBORING ROOF RATS? 

 

There’s something inherently relaxing and beautiful about watching palms sway in the warm breeze. Palm trees grow well in Louisiana’s warm, humid climate as well, making them a seemingly perfect addition to your landscape.

Of course, humans aren’t the only ones with an eye for palm trees – other creatures love them too, but not necessarily for their aesthetics.

Roof rats, also known as fruit rats, love palms as a place to live. It’s possible that your lovely palm trees are actually harboring roof rats, and might really be encouraging vermin to invade your home.

What Are Roof Rats?

Call them what you want, roof rats, fruit rats, black rats, it all boils down to the same thing. These are the same rats that spread bubonic plague and fleas. They’ve been with humans for eons, and throughout that time, they’ve been less than ideal houseguests. Rats spread far more diseases than the frightening Black Death, though. Others include murine typhus, salmonella, rat-bite fever and leptospirosis to name only a few.

Where Do They Live?

Roof rats actually prefer to live in trees, particularly in palm trees...

Aspartame Still Hasn’t Been Proven Safe to Eat, Say Scientists 

 

Too much sugar is bad for your health — but the world’s most popular alternative might not be any better.

For decades, experts have questioned the safety of artificial sweetener aspartame — also known as NutraSweet — with some studies concluding that the sugar substitute can cause a host of health problems, from brain damage to cancer.

To put the issue to rest, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) conducted a closed-door review of available aspartame studies in 2013 and found it to be safe — but according to new research, that’s only because they threw out all the studies claiming otherwise.
