    WARNING – VIDEO CONTAINS IMAGES THAT MAY BE DIFFICULT TO LOOK AT DES MOINES, Iowa (KRON) — A mother is putting out a stern warning after her baby became covered in sores. Baby Juliano is in terrible pain as cold sores take over his face and mouth. His mother Samantha Rodgers says doctors told her he had the flu, or a bad case of hand foot and mouth disease, but it got worse. “His sores were growing onto his hands and his neck and his stomach,” Rodgers said. Juliano was sent to a children’s hospital in Des Moines where he...

    Women actively infected with genital herpes during early pregnancy had twice the odds of giving birth to a child later diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), according to a study by scientists at the Center for Infection and Immunity at Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health and the Norwegian Institute of Public Health. The study is the first to provide immunological evidence on the role of gestational infection in autism, reporting an association between maternal anti-herpes simplex virus-2 (HSV-2) antibodies and risk for ASD in offspring. Results appear in mSphere, a journal of the American Society for Microbiology. "We...

    The ACLU, Planned Parenthood, and environmentalist group Earthjustice have partnered to put on Facebook Live’s first-ever tel-a-thon as counter-programming to Friday’s presidential inauguration.

A press release for the Love-a-thon said that the fundraising efforts are necessary as the next four years will bring “significant challenges” to these organizations. “Each of these organizations helps our most marginalized communities and protects our democratic norms and civil liberties every day through their...

    In this 1969 documentary of a seditious meeting of communists with the notorious communist and terrorist Walter T Howard CCCP of New York City, we see Bernie Sanders attending a meeting and a filming of a North Vietnamese communist film that portrays the communist viet cong as freedom fighters and the Americans as torturers and barbarians. This and other films were shown by student radicals and marxists as Americans were being killed by the North Vietnamese army and the VietCong and as Vietnamese civilians were being murdered, tortured, buried alive and extorted by the communists and their gangster protection schemes...

    Alzheimer’s disease could be caused by viruses like herpes, a group of renowned dementia experts have warned, as they call for urgent investigation into the link. The worldwide team of 31 senior scientists and clinicians, which include specialists from Oxford, Cambridge, Edinburgh and Manchester Universities and Imperial College, have written an editorial which suggests that microbes are the major cause of dementia. The herpes virus - the type which causes cold sores - and chlamydia bacteria are named as the major culprits, as well as a type of corkscrew-shaped bacteria called spirochaete. “There is incontrovertible evidence that Alzheimer’s Disease has...

    The man who made “more power!” a household grunt wants decidedly less power given to the federal government — and offers up a colorful metaphor about one family’s quest to grasp it for life. Tim Allen, star of the long-running sitcom Home Improvement and the new Last Man Standing, talked to the Hollywood Reporter about his conservative political orientation and its emergence in the show. Despite having a “liberal” writing staff, Allen pushes to express his own point of view, albeit somewhat more moderated than in real life: Do you have more comedic leeway now than you did on...

    Comedian Tim Allen, now in a fifth season of his ABC sitcom Last Man Standing, started tongues wagging when he compared the Clintons to herpes in a joke to The Hollywood Reporter. Allen is a television rarity in that he's taken two sitcoms past the 100-episode mark, and this one is also very rare in its appeal to people who like seeing a little Democrat-bashing in their comedy: THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER: Why has the show gone after Hillary but not Trump? TIM ALLEN: It's a little surprising to me. We have a very liberal writing staff, so I'm surprised they...

    It’s the same ballpark where Babe Ruth played his rookie season in 1914. It’s the same hardball theater where Ted Williams homered on his final big league swing, Sept. 28, 1960. It’s where Mickey Mantle made his last out on the same date in 1968. And on Sunday, it’s where Derek Sanderson Jeter will finish a 20-year major league career that defined a game and an era. Cities, teams, ballparks, legends, dates. Everything connects in baseball. Degrees of separation are minimal. Ruth played with Lefty Gomez, who played with Early Wynn, who played with Tommy John, who played with Don...

    Yes, I'm talking to you. About 70% of Americans ages 14 to 49 have herpes, that is either the HSV-1 or HSV-2 versions. These viruses used to be clearly demarcated as oral and genital herpes, but these days it's clear that both can cause both types of infections. Genital herpes is one of the most stigmatized of STI's, and it's far more common than most people think. But learning that you have it might just cause you more social harm than actual good. It's something that experts love to debate. Here are four facts you probably didn't want to know...

    A Chattanooga, Tennessee mom is suing Hamilton County Schools after it was discovered that Apison Elementary School was strip-searching her five-year-old special needs daughter on a daily basis without her consent. The young girl with special needs was diagnosed with congenital herpes while attending school, and despite being given consent to return to school by a doctor, school officials decided that they needed to check to see if the child had legions. So, for a few weeks, a school nurse would check the young girl’s body to make sure there weren’t any new outbreaks. The girl’s mother, Brandy Madden, says...

    Bill de Blasio’s swearing-in event will feature two of the biggest names in Democratic politics: former President Bill Clinton and his wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Mr. Clinton himself will officially swear in Mr. de Blasio next Wednesday afternoon, the mayor-elect’s transition team announced Saturday. Ms. Clinton is widely viewed as a front-running presidential contender in 2016–although she hasn’t declared her intent to run–and every move she makes is watched closely by political observers. During the election, Ms. Clinton held a prominent fund-raiser for Mr. de Blasio, who was the campaign manager for her U.S. Senate race in...

    A New York woman has filed a lawsuit after contracting herpes at a Rihanna concert. Starkeema Greenidge claims she was infected by the virus when she sampled a lipstick offered by one of the singer's sponsors. Greenidge is seeking unspecified damages for the "mental anguish and emotional distress" caused by Rihanna's signature RiRi Woo lipstick. "This is going to happen over and over again if nothing is done," the 28-year-old waitress entreated the New York Daily News. "I wasn't able to work for two weeks. It cost me a lot of money." The Harlem resident told Manhattan supreme court that...

    A fashion-industry titan and top donor to President Bill Clinton met a woman on Match.com, lavishly wined and dined her before she agreed to have unprotected sex — and infected her with herpes, she claims in a new lawsuit. ... The date went well, as Simon regaled her with anecdotes about his relationship to the ex-president, she says. “He told me that he had just gotten back from a lunch with Clinton; he is a close personal friend with Bill Clinton,” she said, and records, in fact, show he shelled out at least $1 million to Clinton’s foundation. Simon, she...

    Northwestern Medicine scientists have identified a component of the herpesvirus that "hijacks" machinery inside human cells, allowing the virus to rapidly and successfully invade the nervous system upon initial exposure. Led by Gregory Smith, associate professor in immunology and microbiology at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, researchers found that viral protein 1-2, or VP1/2, allows the herpesvirus to interact with cellular motors, known as dynein. Once the protein has overtaken this motor, the virus can speed along intercellular highways, or microtubules, to move unobstructed from the tips of nerves in skin to the nuclei of neurons within the nervous...
