DENVER (AP) – Would you eat venison if there was a chance it could slowly eat away at your brain?

If there’s a slight possibility, it doesn’t bother Patrick States. On the menu this evening for his wife and two daughters at their Northglenn home are pan-seared venison steaks with mashed potatoes and a whiskey cream sauce.

“We each have our specialty, actually,” said States as the steak sizzled. “The girls made elk tamales this morning, but we use (venison or elk) in spaghetti, chili, soup, whatever.”


Can deer pass chronic wasting disease to humans?

SANAA, Yemen — Deaths resulting from a diphtheria outbreak in Yemen are “likely to rise” if the naval blockade imposed by a Saudi-led coalition fighting to defeat Shiite rebels in war-torn Yemen remains in place, an international aid group warned on Monday.

Save the Children said in a statement that Yemeni children are bearing the brunt of what it described as a “the worst diphtheria outbreak for a generation.” It also said that its aid workers have been struggling to cope with the disease which has killed at least 52 people, mostly among children under 15, and is believed to have infected some 716 others since August. Diphtheria is a contagious and potentially fatal disease that primarily infects the throat and airways.

This Flu Season Is The Worst Possible Time For A Government Shutdown

Flu cases are continuing to rise in the U.S., with some states, such as California, seeing record numbers of patients seeking medical attention. And public health experts say that the looming government shutdown could hobble states’ efforts to anticipate and prepare for patients seeking emergency care.

So far, 30 deaths of children have been linked to flu, and almost 9,000 people have been hospitalized with the flu. All states except for Hawaii are reporting widespread flu activity, with 32 states reporting high flu activity.

FRIDAY, Jan. 19, 2018 (HealthDay News) -- An already bad U.S. flu season hasn't peaked yet, with the numbers of related hospitalizations and deaths cotinuing to rise, health officials said Friday.

Influenza - including the virulent H3N2 strain - remains widespread across every state except Hawaii, according to a weekly update released by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The CDC has tracked reported cases up until Jan. 13.

The agency said cases of flu-linked pneumonias and deaths remain above the "epidemic threshold," as the nation's emergency rooms continue to crowd with flu patients.

Flu-linked hospitalization rates continue to rise -- from 13.7 per 100,000 people two weeks ago; to 22.7 last week; and to 31.5 per 100,000 people in the latest weekly report.

Flu patients over 65 are most prone to needing hospital care, the report finds, but rates are high for people between the ages of 50 and 64.

The youngest Americans are also among those at highest risk. Thirty infants or small children have already died from flu this season, with 10 of these tragedies occuring over the latest week of reporting, the CDC said.

One of the worst pandemics in human history, the Black Death, along with a string of plague outbreaks that occurred during the 14th to 19th centuries, was spread by human fleas and body lice, a new study suggests.
It was previously suggested that rodents, whose fleas can also transmit the bacteria behind the plague, were the main culprits behind Europe's second pandemic of the disease that saw a string of outbreaks occur in succession.

A gigantic asteroid which is larger than the world's tallest building, the Burj Khalifa, will hurtle past our planet in around two weeks time.

The 2002 AJ129 asteroid has been classed a 'potentially hazardous' by Nasa and will fly past at speeds of 67,000mph (107,826kmh).

This makes it nearly 15 times faster than the world's quickest manned aircraft - the hypersonic North American X-15, which travelled at 4,520mph (7,300kmh).

It will pass.
