Abstract In Japan, from 2000 to 2018, for Vibrio parahaemolyticus and Salmonella food poisonings, the annual number of the outbreaks and that of the patients decreased exponentially though the size of the individual outbreaks (the number of patients per outbreak) tended to become larger. For food poisonings caused by Campylobacter, the annual number of the outbreaks increased exponentially while the outbreak size became smaller and the annual number of the patients remained almost unchanged. For food poisoning caused by norovirus, both the number of the outbreaks and that of the patients remained high throughout. ...

BOSTON (CBS) – A new study in The Lancet finds that poor hand washing poses a bigger threat than under-cooked meat when it comes to the spread of the potentially deadly bacteria E. coli. E. coli is a bacterium that normally lives in our gut. Some strains are completely harmless. Others can cause serious infections, like those of the bladder and the bloodstream. And the germs are becoming increasingly resistant to antibiotics. After looking at tens of thousands of samples, researchers found humans are much more likely to get sick from E. coli strains passed from person-to-person rather than from contaminated meat. The...

Yesterday, I revealed that the Tennessee Department of Healthreported its first death from vaping-associated respiratory illness as follows: "The Tennessee Department of Health has reported one death in a patient with serious respiratory disease associated with use of electronic cigarettes or other vaping devices. This is the first such death reported in Tennessee. "As it turns out, it appears that this death was not caused by electronic cigarettes, but byTHC vape carts.I suggested that the health department's reporting of the death as being associated with the use of " electronic cigarettes or other vaping ...

Sadly, Tennessee recently experienced itsfirst death from vaping-associated respiratory illness.Here's how the Tennessee Department of Healthreported it:" The Tennessee Department of Health has reported one death in a patient with serious respiratory disease associated with use of electronic cigarettes or other vaping devices. This is the first such death reported in Tennessee. "So which one was it? Was it the use of " electronic cigarettes " or was it the use of " other vaping devices. " If the Tennessee Department of Health truly wants to prevent further cases of this illness, it is incumben...

Last Thursday, CDC finally revised itswarning to the public about the vaping-associated respiratory disease outbreak to state clearly that vaping THC-containing products is playing a major role in the outbreak. It stated that:" The latest national and state findings suggest products containing THC, particularly those obtained off the street or from other informal sources (e.g. friends, family members, illicit dealers), are linked to most of the cases and play a major role in the outbreak. Therefore, CDC recommends that you should not use e-cigarette, or vaping, products that contain THC."In addition, CDC finallyr...

(CNN) — When multidrug-resistant pathogens kept reappearing on the skin of premature babies in a German hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit, investigators were confused. Tests for contamination in the incubators, as well as among healthcare workers who came into contact with the preemies, were all coming up negative, according to a report on the case published Friday by the American Society for Microbiology. But tests showed the babies were continually being reinfected with Klebsiella oxytoca, a bacteria notorious for hospital-acquired infections such as pneumonia, urinary tract infection, soft tissue infec...

Publication date: Available online 18 September 2019Source: Food BioscienceAuthor(s): Sarengaowa, Wenzhong Hu, Ke Feng, Zhilong Xiu, Aili Jiang, Ying LaoAbstractFresh-cut cantaloupe (Cucumis melo L.) is a popular food. However, the presence of foodborne pathogen on the cut surfaces leads to both spoilage and food poisoning of fresh-cut cantaloupe. The antibacterial effectiveness of an alginate-based edible coating (EC) containing thyme oil was evaluated against foodborne pathogens on fresh-cut cantaloupe samples. Cantaloupe samples were treated with alginate-based EC and alginate-based EC containing different concentration...

In conclusion, our data show how oncogenic and tumor-suppressive drivers of cellular senescence act to regulate surveillance processes that can be circumvented to enable SnCs to elude immune recognition but can be reversed by cell surface-targeted interventions to purge the SnCs that persist in vitro and in patients. Since eliminating SnCs can prevent tumor progression, delay the onset of degenerative diseases, and restore fitness; since NKG2D-Ls are not widely expressed in healthy human tissues and NKG2D-L shedding is an evasion mechanism also employed by tumor cells; and since increasing numbers of B cells express NKG2D ...

The gut microbiome is influential on the progression of health, perhaps to a similar degree as regular moderate exercise. Age-related changes in these microbial populations can promote chronic inflammation and tissue dysfunction, though the direction of causation is still up for debate when it comes to many of the details of the relationship between tissue and immune issues in the intestine and an altered gut microbiome. Nonetheless, less desirable microbes undertake activities that can raise the risk of cancer resulting from inflammation of the intestines, occurring in conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease. Resear...
