Holiday feast can be treat for deadly bacteria, too.

It’s that time of year for friends, feasts and — if you’re not careful — doubled-over abdominal cramping, vomiting and a host of other agonies that come with food poisoning.
“Nothing says holidays like norovirus," quipped Marianne Gravely,a public educator with the Food Safety Education Staff at the U.S. Department of Agriculture, referring to the most common source of food poisoning. The highly contagious virus causes 19 million-21 million illnesses and contributes to 56,000-71,000 hospitalizations and 570-800 deaths each year in the U.S.
On Thanksgiving Day, as her own turkey safely cooks (at never, ever less than 325 degrees), Gravely will be taking calls on the USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline as hosts and hostesses across the U.S. wonder once again: READ MORE

Antibiotic resistance: World on cusp of 'post-antibiotic era'

The world is on the cusp of a "post-antibiotic era", scientists have warned after finding bacteria resistant to drugs used when all other treatments have failed.
They identified bacteria able to shrug off the drug of last resort - colistin - in patients and livestock in China.
They said that resistance would spread around the world and raised the spectre of untreatable infections.
It is likely resistance emerged after colistin was overused in farm animals.
Bacteria becoming completely resistant to treatment - also known as the antibiotic apocalypse - could plunge medicine back into the dark ages.  READ MORE

Silver Imbedded Keyboard Can be Cleaned in the Dishwasher

The first backlit, rigid plastic, waterproof keyboard constructed with silver-based antimicrobial protection to limit transmission of germs, bacteria and mold is now available, according to WetKeys Washable Keyboards, an Atlanta, Georgia-based company.
The Silver Seal Glow keyboard uses waterproof LED lighting adjustable in 3 levels to backlight keys, making it useful for low-light environments such as operating suites, laboratories and hospital wards. The keyboard is completely submersible, and can be cleaned using healthcare grade disinfectants, or even in an automatic dishwasher, officials say.
They cite studies showing that up to 25 percent of hospital keyboards are contaminated with the Super Bug MRSA, a strain of staph bacteria resistant to antibiotics. Daily disinfecting of computer keyboards can reduce risk of cross contamination. Although most keyboards are not designed for frequent cleaning with disinfectants, WetKeys waterproof keyboards are completely washable, and the new Silver Seal keyboard is not only washable but also imbedded with silver ions that inhibit bacterial growth.

Office workers who refused flu shots suspended without pay

Three office workers for a social service agency said Friday they have been suspended without pay for a week for refusing to comply with their company's new flu-prevention protocols, which require them to receive a flu shot or or wear a surgical mask in the workplace.
Unless the agency changes its policy, the women said, they expect to be fired when the suspension is complete.
Megan Duncan, Alanda Watson and Denise Mercurius — whose case was profiled by NJ Advance Media Thursday — said they were informed of the discipline during a meeting at their Burlington Township office building, the headquarters for Lutheran Social Ministries of New Jersey. READ MORE

Pneumonia outbreak taking place

In the last two weeks of October, 21 cases of pneumonia were diagnosed at either Cooper Clinic or Mercy Hospital in Paris.
“Twenty-one cases in two weeks is incredible,” said Dr. Jason Richey, who practices medicine at Cooper Clinic.
Twelve of the cases were diagnosed at Mercy Hospital and nine were diagnosed at Cooper Clinic.
“That’s the most cases I’ve seen in the 15 years I’ve been here,” Dr. Richey said. “People are a lot sicker, too. I’ve had three of the nine cases I saw hospitalized.”
Citing the Arkansas Department of Health, Dr. Richey also said this could be a year in which we see more cases of flu and pneumonia.
Why so many?
“I don’t really know why,” Dr. Richey said. “Most of the cases we’ve seen so far are people under 65 and that’s very rare. I’d say we’re in the middle of an outbreak and people need to be very cautious about it.”  READ MORE
