    A 40-year-old mother in San Jose, Calif., died two days after catching the flu, the San Francisco Chronicle reported, citing local media. Katie Denise Oxley Thomas, who was considered healthy and liked to run marathons, died on Jan. 4, the report said. She is the 42nd Californian under the age of 65 to die from the flu, the paper reported. “I can tell you that she seemed absolutely fine on New Year’s Eve and called a friend Tuesday morning saying that she had a sore throat, and by Wednesday she was in the ICU,” her sister told the Mercury News....

    Flu cases in North Georgia are on the rise. North Georgia Health District officials are encouraging all residents six months of age and older to get a flu shot while there is still time. Sherry Gregory, RN, North Georgia Health District Infectious Disease Supervisor, said: “It is not too late to vaccinate against the flu. Flu activity is increasing throughout our area. We expect the flu season to reach its peak early this year, within the next few weeks, so it is important to get vaccinated now. Flu vaccination not only protects the person who receives the vaccine but it...

    (CNN)Health officials in Salt Lake County, Utah, are warning residents that an estimated 2,000 of them could have been exposed to hepatitis A at a local 7-Eleven convenience store. People who visited the location in West Jordan between December 26 and January 3 could be at risk if they used a restroom in the store or consumed certain food items, according to the Salt Lake County Health Department. "The possible hepatitis A exposure occurred when an infected employee worked while ill and potentially handled certain items in the store," the department said on Sunday. The case is believed to be...
  • The CDC Wants to Get People Ready for a Nuclear Detonation

    The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is offering a teaching session later this month that's tied to a timely topic of late: nuclear war. The Jan. 16 event, which the CDC has titled "Public Health Response to a Nuclear Detonation," comes at a time when continued tensions between the U.S. and North Korea over the Hermit Kingdom's nuclear pursuits are running particularly hot. ------------------- Federal, state and local agencies would lead immediate responses to nuclear activity, the CDC says. Yet Stat News reports the session is meant to target public health professionals like doctors, nurses, pharmacists and even...

    US Agency to Hold Briefing on How Public Can Prepare for Nuclear War By Tom Ozimek January 6, 2018 8:31 am Last Updated: January 6, 2018 12:28 pm A U.S. federal agency has scheduled a briefing for how the public can prepare for nuclear war. “While a nuclear detonation is unlikely, it would have devastating results and there would be limited time to take critical protection steps,” stated the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on its website. The notice about the briefing, scheduled for the Jan. 16, features a photograph of a mushroom cloud and notes that “planning...

    A report today from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on a small outbreak of carbapenemase-producing carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CP-CRE) at a Kentucky hospital in 2016 highlights multiple introduction of the worrisome pathogen in a rural facility and demonstrates the possible role of cleaning equipment. The investigation by physicians and epidemiologists from the CDC and the Kentucky Department of Health, appearing today in the CDC's Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR), describes an outbreak that started on Aug 11, 2016, when two Klebsiella pneumoniae carbapenemase (KPC)-producing isolates from clinical cultures were reported from patients in a small community hospital...

    The Centers for Disease Control (CDC), which I affectionately refer to as the Diseased Centers of Control, have conducted a study showing that black men make better parents than white men. The study, conducted in 2013, came to light in a recent Washington Post article on the Post's favorite topic – you guessed it! – of racism. The study was conducted by the CDC's Division of Vital Statistics, centering on how involved fathers are in the lives of their children. It found the following: 1) Thirty-five percent of white fathers who don't live with their children do not eat meals...

    The flu is now considered “widespread” across Minnesota (and elsewhere). In other words, the flu virus has been reported at hospitals all over the state. Many hospitals are placing restrictions on visitors to stop the spread. The numbers are why the Minnesota Department of Health has declared influenza and respiratory illness widespread, which means hospitals will be placing restrictions on visitors to protect patients and staff. (Emphasis mine)

    Full title: Revealed: Bogus 'Trump Banned Words at the CDC' Story Was Rooted in Suggested Guidelines From Liberal Bureaucrats If you're just joining this flap, here's a short recap: Late last week, it was reported that Trump administration officials at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) had sought to "ban" words they deemed to be controversial, including "transgender" and "fetus."  This sparked an immediate outcry, as Orwellian censorship rarely plays well with the American people.  The Trump-hostile media were in full throat, pounding the table against this anti-science outrage.  The original story ("forbidden words") appeared in the Washington Post, then...

    More than 600 Hepatitis A cases have been reported in Southeast Michigan as the outbreak continues to ravage the communities.

According to Voice News, more than 80 percent of those who have contracted the highly contagious liver disease have required hospitalization. Another 20 people have died after becoming infected with the virus. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say that symptoms can be mild or severe depending on the health of the person who contracts the...

    U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention director Dr. Brenda Fitzgerald on Sunday addressed a report that President Donald Trump’s administration had banned the CDC from using seven words or phrases in next year’s budget documents. The terms are “fetus,” “transgender,” “vulnerable,” “entitlement,” “diversity,” “evidence-based” and “science-based,” according to a story first reported on Friday in The Washington Post. But Fitzgerald said in a series of tweets on Sunday said there are “no banned words,” while emphasizing the agency’s commitment to data-driven science.

    Multiple agencies in the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) have reportedly been told by the Trump administration that they cannot use certain phrases in official documents. Officials from two HHS agencies, who asked that their names and agencies remain anonymous, told The Washington Post that they had been given a list of "forbidden" words similar to the one given to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). A second HHS agency was told not to use the phrases “entitlement,” “diversity” and “vulnerable," in documents. It was also told to use "ObamaCare" as opposed to the "Affordable Care Act" and...

    NORWALK, WIS. — Not long ago, a local farmer here plunged into a depression so intense that he could barely muster the strength to leave his bed. The 40-something father of eight went dark for weeks, despite the enormous amount of daily work needed to keep his family farm going. “If you are running a small farm, you still have to get up and milk the cows. You got to go put the crops in. There are demands that nature doesn’t let you forget,” explained Jerry Menn, a farmer and doctor who was familiar with his friend’s crisis. “His massive...

    Trump administration officials are forbidding officials at the nation's top public health agency from using a list of seven words or phrases - including "fetus" and "transgender" - in any official documents being prepared for next year's budget. Policy analysts at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta were told of the list of forbidden words at a meeting Thursday with senior CDC officials who oversee the budget, according to an analyst who took part in the 90-minute briefing. The forbidden words are: "vulnerable," "entitlement," "diversity," "transgender," "fetus," "evidence-based" and "science-based." In some instances, the analysts were given...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi warned against an attempt at "thought control" by the Trump administration in response to a report that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was told it was forbidden from using seven words in official documents related to the 2019 budget. "DANGER!", the California Democrat tweeted Saturday in all caps, adding that the administration is "going further down a dangerous and un-American path" by banning such words as "science-based" and "diversity."

    George Orwell would have been the first to admit that by controlling language you can control people's attitudes. The government has been doing that for years with code phrases like "Abortion" (also known as ending the life of a baby) and "Earned Income Tax Credit" (also known as welfare). But now liberals are getting upset that President Trump is ripping several pages from their new-speak lexicon. The Trump administration is prohibiting officials at the nation’s top public health agency from using a list of seven words or phrases — including “fetus” and “transgender” — in any official documents being prepared...

    Back when I was in high school (and dinosaurs roamed the Earth), the comedian George Carlin released an album named Class Clown where he taught America about the seven dirty words you can’t say on television. I’m not going to list them here, even though four of them are now regularly heard on cable television, even during the family hour. But now the old list can move aside, at least at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). There’s a new grouping of seven dirty words which are not to be used in any of the agency’s publications next...

    It has been more than four years since I received that first phone call from Dr. William Thompson, a scientist at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), who is now under whistleblower protection. During these years, I was in direct contact with Dr. Thompson. We probably had more than 40 phone conversations and exchanged more than 10,000 pages of documents. All of the information was then shared with Rep. William J. Posey (R-8-Fla.) The phone conversations including both audio and written transcripts are available at the website: Dr. Thompson’s story has now been told in two books,...
