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.

WHAT IS EEE VIRUS? MOSQUITOES CARRYING DEADLY VIRUS FOUND IN NEW YORK AND MASSACHUSETTS 

 

Health officials have confirmed the potentially life-threatening Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) virus has been found in mosquitoes in both New York and Massachusetts.

New York's Oswego County Health Department said on Tuesday that two mosquitoes taken from a field station at Toad Harbor Swamp in West Monroe tested positive for the EEE virus, Sycaruse.com reported.

On Tuesday, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health revealed EEE-carrying mosquitoes were identified for the first time this summer in mid-July, The Boston Globe reported. The bugs were found in the towns of Easton, Freetown, and Fairhaven, as well as the city of New Bedford.

Oswego County Public Health Director Jiancheng Huang told CNY Central: "We are working closely with state Department of Health to monitor mosquito activity around the county and will take actions as deemed appropriate based on consultations with state and regional partners."

Alcohol tainted with methanol suspected of killing at least 19 people in Costa Rica 
 

Costa Rica has issued a national alert about tainted alcohol after 19 people were confirmed to have died over the past few weeks from methanol poisoning. The government says several alcohol brands have been tainted with methanol, a poisonous alcohol found in solvents and antifreeze.

Since early June, 14 men and five women across Costa Rica have died from methanol poisoning, according to the Ministry of Health. They ranged in age from 32 to 72. Seven of the deaths were in the San Jose province, which includes San Jose, the most populous city in Costa Rica.

The Ministry of Health said information on the deaths is "preliminary" and an investigation is ongoing.

This Common Grilling Mistake Could Make You Very Sick—Luckily, There's An Easy Fix 

 

Eager cooks can find myriad reasons to make dinner on the grill every night of the week in peak grilling season: From chicken and steak to pizza, potatoes, bread, even dessert, there isn’t much that isn’t delicious after a spin over charcoal or the flames of a gas grill.

However, one thing no one wants to take away from their smoky piece of perfectly-grilled fish is a foodborne illness. But it is entirely possible an over-eager cook could set up their family and dinner guests for just that if they don’t do this one essential step: preheat the grill and scrub it clean of any residue before cooking.

Grills can harbor pieces of food for days, weeks, even months after the dish has been consumed. The food that remains on the grills is an attraction for birds, insects, and other animals. They can introduce any number of bacteria (and even waste) to the grill’s surface. Plus, leftover food bits are a magnet for bacteria, and they can produce unusual odors or flavors in the food you’re cooking on top of them.

Cavi Brand Papayas Could Be Source Of Multi-State Salmonella Outbreak, Says CDC 

 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has warned people in the United States about a possible connection between Cavi Brand Papayas and salmonella outbreak in several states. CDC urged people not to sell, serve or eat this whole fresh fruit from the brand as it is likely to be the source for the bacterial infection.

The announcement was made by the agency Friday after it investigated the source of the bacteria which has hit about eight states. They looked into the possible link between papayas imported from Mexico and salmonella infections.

“Epidemiologic and traceback evidence indicates Cavi brand whole, fresh papayas are a likely source of this outbreak. Do not eat, serve, or sell any Cavi brand whole, fresh papayas because they may be contaminated with salmonella. We are no longer advising consumers to avoid all papayas from Mexico,” CDC said in a statement.

A Fecal Parasite Is Causing More Disease Outbreaks, and Swimming Pools May Be to Blame, CDC Says 

 

A recent announcement from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) may put a damper on summer fun. A fecal parasite often spread by swimming is causing an increasing number of illness outbreaks, the agency says.

The number of disease outbreaks involving the parasite Cryptosporidium, also known as Crypto, increased by about 13% each year from 2009 to 2017, according to a new report from the CDC. People can become ill with cryptosporidiosis after exposure to contaminated human or animal fecal matter, developing symptoms including nausea, cramps and diarrhea that can last weeks and lead to serious malnutrition and dehydration.

Do you know the hygiene hot spots in your home? 

 

Washing hands, cloths and surfaces at the right time is the key to good hygiene - but one in four people think it is not important, it warns.

Getting it right can reduce infections and antibiotic resistance.

And there is no such thing as being "too clean".

According to the RSPH report, there is confusion among the public about the difference between dirt, germs, cleanliness and hygiene.

In a survey of 2,000 people, 23% thought children needed to be exposed to harmful germs to build up their immune systems.

But experts behind the report said this was "a potentially harmful belief" which could lead to exposure to some dangerous infections.

Instead, they said people should concentrate on cleaning specific places at specific times, even if they look clean, to stop "bad" microbes spreading.

Frozen Avocados Recalled Nationwide From Several Stores Due To Listeria Concerns 

 

Avocados, whether spread on toast or mashed in guacamole, are one of America's most favorite fruits. But fresh ones have a very short shelf live and just one day past ripe can lead to brown spots and inedible results. That's why frozen avocados have been gaining popularity in recent years. In fact, you might have some in your freezer right now — though you might want to check on them, because they could make you sick. Frozen avocados are being recalled nationwide from several stores due to listeria concerns.

Restaurant Temporarily Closed After Decomposing Body Leaked Through Its Ceiling 

 

In late May, Officer Ryan Wilder was called to an apartment in Windsor, Connecticut, after a woman reported that she hadn’t seen or heard from her neighbor in a few days. On his way into the building, a worker from Siam Corner Thai Kitchen stopped him, and asked if he could check out the restaurant, too: there was a strong smell in the kitchen and a strange liquid was leaking through the ceiling.

If you know where this is going, then congratulations on finishing all 14 seasons of Criminal Minds. “I went into the restaurant and discovered a reddish brown substance dripping from the ceiling located behind the front counter of the restaurant,” Officer Wilder wrote in his incident report. “It appeared that the dripping substance was possibly blood.”
