Obama seeks funds to fight Zika; sees no cause for panic
8 Feb 2016 at 11:51am

WASHINGTON/LONDON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama will ask the U.S. Congress for more than $1.8 billion in emergency funds to fight Zika at home and abroad and pursue a vaccine, the White House said on Monday, but Obama also said there was no reason to panic over the mosquito-borne virus. Zika, spreading rapidly in South and Central America and the Caribbean, has been linked to severe birth defects in Brazil and public health officials' concern is focused on pregnant women and women who may become pregnant. Obama's request to Congress includes $200 million for research, development and commercialization of new vaccines and diagnostic tests for the virus.

8 Feb 2016 at 11:26am

Twin births have almost doubled in developed countries in four decades, said researchers Monday who cautioned about the associated health risks. In a study published in the US journal Population and Development Review, scientists said the rate of twin births nearly doubled in the United States from 9.5 twins per 1,000 deliveries in 1975, to 16.9 in 2011. "We're not sure if the rate will continue to increase, but the data is increasingly seen as a public health crisis," said Gilles Pison of France's Ined demographic research institute, who co-authored the study.

Bananas may help detect, cure skin cancer: study
8 Feb 2016 at 10:28am

The black spots on old banana peels may unlock a faster, easier diagnosis of human skin cancer, boosting survival chances, scientists said Monday. When bananas ripen, their skin is covered in small, round black spots caused by an enzyme known as tyrosinase. The same enzyme is present in human skin, and in greater quantities in people suffering from melanoma -- a potentially deadly form of skin cancer.

Thousands of lives at risk unless WHO reforms now: U.N. report
8 Feb 2016 at 10:07am

By Kate Kelland LONDON, Feb 8 (Reuters) - - The World Health Organization's emergency response capability is "lacking" and will put thousands of lives at risk if it is not reformed now, according to a high-level U.N. report on health crises. "This may be the last opportunity to ensure the WHO is empowered" to build an effective emergency response capacity, warned an advance, unedited copy of the U.N. panel's report, made available online over the weekend in a link on the United Nations' daily Journal website. "If the WHO does not successfully reform, the next major pandemic will cause thousands of otherwise preventable deaths." The U.N. report, entitled "Protecting Humanity from Future Health Crises", is the latest in a series of reviews by global health experts which have been sharply critical of the WHO's response to the devastating Ebola epidemic in West Africa.
