An Exotic Tick Is Turning Up In Some Parts of the U.S. Here ’s What to Know
A tick that can cause “massive infestations” is spreading across parts of the U.S., the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warns. The Asian longhorned tick is not typically seen in the Western Hemisphere. Nonetheless, the pest has been found on people and animals in multiple U.S. states over the past year, the CDC says.

Here ’s Why the CDC Wants You to Throw Away All Your Romaine Lettuce
All the romaine lettuce in the U.S. is currently unsafe to eat, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has said, warning consumers that an E. coli outbreak is linked to the salad staple.

The number of ill people is expected to increase, says Laura Gieraltowski, team lead of the CDC’s foodborne outbreak response team. Gieraltowski says the CDC took the somewhat extreme measure of warning people to avoid all romaine lettuce because the agency has not yet identified a common grower or supplier that could be the source of the outbreak.

A New Study Says Low-Carb Diets May Help You Lose Weight. But Are Carbs Really So Bad For You?
A new study suggests that low-carb diets may help people keep weight off and even drop extra pounds, adding to the confusion about the health benefits — or detriments — of carbohydrates. For the study, which was published in The BMJ, researchers put 234 overweight adults on a 10-week weight-loss diet. More than half of them successfully lost about 10% of their body weight during that time. From there, they were then assigned to follow either a low-carb diet (20% of total calories from carbohydrates, 60% from fat), a moderate-carb diet (40% from carbs and fat) or a high-carb diet (60% from carbs, 20% from fat) f...
