U.S. lab's suspect anthrax may have been sent to Pentagon: official
2 Jun 2015 at 5:13pm
A suspect batch of anthrax may have been sent to the Pentagon after an Army laboratory in Utah mistakenly shipped out suspected live samples of the potentially lethal bacteria, a U.S. defense official said on Tuesday. The suspected shipment, first reported by CNN, came from a batch that was meant to have been inactivated at the Dugway Proving Ground, but which tested live during the ongoing investigation, the official said. The Pentagon said earlier on Tuesday that suspect anthrax samples had been sent to labs in 12 U.S. states, as well as Australia, South Korea and Canada, as far back as 2006.

South Korea reports five more cases of MERS illness
2 Jun 2015 at 4:50pm

South Korea confirmed five more cases of the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) virus, the health ministry said early on Wednesday, bringing to 30 the total number of cases in the country of the often-deadly illness. On Tuesday, South Korea reported its first two deaths from MERS since the first confirmed case two weeks ago, fuelling growing worry about the spread of the illness in the country, which has reported the most cases of MERS outside the Middle East. South Korea has isolated about 750 people for possible MERS infection, which is caused by a coronavirus from the same family as the one that triggered the deadly 2003 outbreak of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS).

California Senate votes to raise smoking age to 21 from 18
2 Jun 2015 at 4:45pm

By Alex Dobuzinskis LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The California Senate voted on Tuesday to raise the legal smoking age in the most populous U.S. state to 21 from 18, in a move that could make California one of the states with the highest smoking age. The measure was approved by the Senate 26-8 and must now be approved by the state Assembly. "We will not sit on the sidelines while big tobacco markets to our kids and gets another generation of young people hooked on a product that will ultimately kill them," Senator Ed Hernandez, a Democrat and the bill's author, said.

Chimps have mental skills to cook: study
2 Jun 2015 at 4:03pm
By Sharon Begley NEW YORK (Reuters) - They're not likely to start barbecuing in the rainforest, but chimpanzees can understand the concept of cooking and are willing to postpone eating raw food, even carrying food some distance to cook it rather than eat immediately, scientists reported on Tuesday. Surprisingly, since chimps usually eat food immediately, they were often willing to walk across a room to cook.

U.S. lab's suspect anthrax may have been taken into Pentagon: CNN
2 Jun 2015 at 3:58pm
The U.S. Defense Department is investigating to determine if live anthrax was brought into the Pentagon after an Army laboratory in Utah mistakenly shipped out live batches of the potentially lethal bacteria, CNN reported on Tuesday. The Dugway Proving Ground had intended to send shipments of inert anthrax spores but may have inadvertently sent live batches to labs in 12 U.S. states, as well as three foreign countries, as far back as 2006. One of the shipments was for police at the Pentagon, where it was to have been used to calibrate security sensors that screen for chemical and biological weapons, two defense officials told CNN.

Teenage bullying linked to adult depression: UK study
2 Jun 2015 at 3:50pm

Nearly one in three cases of depression among young British adults may be traced to having been bullied as adolescents, a study said Tuesday. In one phase of the project, nearly 4,000 participants completed a questionnaire at the age of 13, and were assessed again five years later for symptoms of depressive illness. When other possible causes were added to the mix -- such as behavioural or mental problems or family difficulties -- the statistical link with adult depression weakened, but the rate was still twice as high as for non-bullied peers.

FDA raises fainting concern with women's libido drug flibanserin
2 Jun 2015 at 3:42pm
By Toni Clarke WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has once again raised concerns about the safety of flibanserin, an experimental women's libido drug, saying it increased the risk of fainting and accidental injury, especially when combined with alcohol. The review, published on the FDA's website on Tuesday, comes two days before a meeting of external advisers who will recommend whether it should be approved. The FDA typically follows the advice of its advisory panels.

Experts recommend standing for two to four hours during workday
2 Jun 2015 at 3:40pm
By Kathryn Doyle (Reuters Health) - People who work desk-based jobs should aim to stand and do light activity for a total of four hours throughout the day, according to an international panel of experts. The panel was commissioned by Public Health England and the company Active Working CIC, which owns the Get Britain Standing campaign.

Canada says no danger posed by U.S. anthrax shipment
2 Jun 2015 at 3:20pm
The Canadian government confirmed on Tuesday that it received an anthrax sample kit from the U.S Department of Defense that might have contained live bacterium, but it said there were no reported illnesses. In a statement, the Public Health Agency of Canada said it received the sample in August 2006, but that it had not been used for over five years and was relocated to a secure laboratory. Live anthrax samples were shipped to three laboratories in Canada by a U.S. military lab, USA Today reported on Monday, following disclosures last week that samples of the bacteria were mistakenly sent to 11 U.S. states and two other countries.

Bush and Rubio favored in Florida but other Republicans want a look
2 Jun 2015 at 2:42pm

By Steve Holland LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (Reuters) - Differences emerged on Tuesday among Republican rivals for the 2016 presidential nomination at a forum where it was clear that Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio will face some competition in Florida despite their home-state edge. The fact that seven Republican candidates or potential candidates spoke at Florida Governor Rick Scott's "Economic Growth Summit" was proof of the wide-open nature of the search by Florida Republicans for a candidate in the November 2016 election. Rubio, 44, opened the forum by declaring "the time has come for a new generation of leaders," a sign that he sees himself rather than the 62-year-old Bush and others in the crowded Republican field as the key to the party's future.

U.S. policies to encourage organ donations largely ineffective
2 Jun 2015 at 2:25pm
By Andrew M. Seaman (Reuters Health) - State policies meant to encourage people throughout the U.S. to donate organs over the past few decades have been largely ineffective, a new study suggests. Creating a state fund to promote organ donations was the only policy linked to any increase in transplants, the researchers reported June 1 in JAMA Internal Medicine. "We really need new strategies to bridge the gap between the organ need in the U.S. and the actual supply that we have," said Dr. Paula Chatterjee, the study's lead author from Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston.

Early diabetes detection tied to fewer heart problems
2 Jun 2015 at 2:20pm
By Kathryn Doyle (Reuters Health) - Earlier screening, diagnosis and treatment of type 2 diabetes may decrease the risk of cardiovascular problems, hint results from a computer model. The timing of the diagnosis and the start of treatment appeared more important than the actual intensity of treatment, the researchers reported online May 18 in Diabetes Care. ?Actually, though it seems intuitive, the evidence for screening for type 2 diabetes is really not strong,? said lead author Dr. William H. Herman of the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.

Many patients skip prescribed drugs after MI
2 Jun 2015 at 2:19pm
By Lisa Rapaport (Reuters Health) - Many patients who survive myocardial infarction don?t consistently take medications prescribed to prevent a second MI, a large U.S. study suggests. Researchers asked 7,425 patients how often they took all the drugs physicians prescribed shortly after their heart attack, and about 2,150 of them confessed to following doctors? orders only some of the time. While each patient may have unique motivations for deciding whether or not to take medications, it?s not uncommon for people who skip doses or fail to fill prescriptions to do so because they misunderstand the role of the medications in preventing another heart attack, fear side effects, or lack funds to pay for drugs, lead author Dr. Robin Mathews told Reuters Health in an email. is part of GropWeb Network, online properties of GroupWeb Media LLC.
