Study links viral infections to Alzheimer ’s, Parkinson’s—with many caveats
A massive data mining study has found numerous associations between common viruses like the flu and devastating neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease). The findings expand on previous research linking individual viruses to neurological diseases. But experts caution that the study, which relied on electronic medical records rather than biological samples, merely describes correlations and doesn’t prove causation. Still, it’s “really exciting,” says Kristen Funk, a neuroimmunologist who studi...

WHO Renames Monkeypox as mpox, Citing Racism Concerns
LONDON — The World Health Organization has renamed monkeypox as mpox, citing concerns the original name of the decades-old animal disease could be construed as discriminatory and racist.

WHO said it was concerned by the “racist and stigmatizing language” that arose after monkeypox spread to more than 100 countries. It said numerous individuals and countries asked the organization “to propose a way f...
