Severe Flu Cases on the Rise in U.S.

This year’s influenza season started earlier than expected and is sending more patients to the hospital, raising concerns this could be a more severe outbreak than in recent years.
Thirty-six states are now experiencing high levels of flu activity, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, as this year’s flu vaccine may not fully protect against a strain known as influenza A H3N2 that is currently circulating and tends to be more severe.
Fifteen children age 18 and under have died from the flu as of Dec. 20, READ MORE

As Medicaid Rolls Swell, Cuts in Payments to Doctors Threaten Access to Care

WASHINGTON — Just as millions of people are gaining insurance through Medicaid, the program is poised to make deep cuts in payments to many doctors, prompting some physicians and consumer advocates to warn that the reductions could make it more difficult for Medicaid patients to obtain care.
The Affordable Care Act provided a big increase in Medicaid payments for primary care in 2013 and 2014. But the increase expires on Thursday — just weeks after the Obama administration told the Supreme Court that doctors and other providers had no legal right to challenge the adequacy of payments they received from Medicaid.

CDC reports potential Ebola exposure in Atlanta lab

Researchers studying Ebola in a highly secure laboratory mistakenly allowed potentially lethal samples of the virus to be handled in a much less secure laboratory at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, agency officials said Wednesday.
One technician in the second laboratory may have been exposed to the virus and about a dozen other people have been assessed after entering the facility unaware that potentially hazardous samples of Ebola had been handled there. READ MORE

Researchers Discover Protein Protecting Bacteria Against Chlorine

Chlorine is a common disinfectant that is used to kill bacteria, for example in swimming pools and drinking water supplies. Our immune system also produces chlorine, which causes proteins in bacteria to lose their natural folding. These unfolded proteins then begin to clump and lose their function. Ruhr University Bochum (RUB) researchers headed by professor Lars Leichert have discovered a protein in the intestinal bacterium E. coli that protects bacteria from chlorine. In the presence of chlorine, it tightly bonds with other proteins, thus preventing them from coagulating. Once the danger has passed, it releases them again and the proteins can continue to work as usual. The researchers report their findings in the current issue of Nature Communications. READ MORE

HARVARD STUDY “Some bacteria develop the ability to neutralize the antibiotic before it can do harm..."

Penicillin, the wonder drug discovered in 1928, works in ways that are still mysterious almost a century later. One of the oldest and most widely used antibiotics, it attacks enzymes that build the bacterial cell wall, a mesh that surrounds the bacterial membrane and gives the cells their integrity and shape. Once that wall is breached, bacteria die — allowing us to recover from infection.
That would be the end of the story, if resistance to penicillin and other antibiotics hadn’t emerged over recent decades as a serious threat to human health. While scientists continue to search for new antibiotics, they still don’t understand very much about how the old ones work.  READ MORE

GMOs Causing Deadly Bacteria to Flourish in Digestive System

We know that numerous medications interfere with your gut health, but what’s depleting your body’s ‘good’ bacteria may go even further. Researchers have found that a deadly strain of bacteria created by the biotech industry is likely growing in your digestive system. As many experts have suspected, GM foods tainted with the omnipresent agrochemical, Roundup, are causing widespread changes in the microbiome of those who consume them.
The changes to our gut flora has long been linked to genetically modified food consumption, but this study points to an exact culprit which results in a wide array of lethal disease. READ MORE
