Wow, for a while there, I was scared that you might be an English teacher.

The thing I found most interesting about your 31/2 year old link was that the most fastidious hand washers were in Toronto during and following the SARS scare where a total of 32 Torontons were said to have died from SARS while the murder rate plodded along at 94 for the year.

Yes it is the bedside manner that stands out.

I love Hugh Laurie. Hard to believe he got his start in such gems as A Bit of Fry and Laurie, and the Black Adder series.

Warning to self: Don't even think about reading articles with the heading "Rare Brain Worms" right before breakfast.......

This story was worthy of a "Barf" alert.......

I wonder if a really good Margarita accompanying it would counter act the worms? Ceviche is pretty tasty stuff to give up!

How much do you want to bet that these third world cooks don't get jobs at the White House?

Remember. Eat at home! Cook your own food. They are working in many restaurants. All those years of vaccinations and disease control were a waste of time and money now that we have open borders. Hard for all of us to face the changes that we are going to have to make. This is the least reported and most dangerous aspect of US policy on immigration.

E coli from California.

Spread from feral pigs or nearby cattle farms (take your pick) into fields where these poor picked on illegals are working. It's a wonder THEY don't sue the owners but I heard they are too busy running for the hills. LOL

"Doctors at a clinic gave him medicine for high blood pressure."

This guy should get a segment on an episode of "Missed Diagnosis"
on Discovery Channel.

But I'd be afraid the producers would have to say "America is to blame
for his problem...because we don't have free health care for every
body within the borders of the USA...legal or illegal."

The disease is usually found in rural parts of developing countries with poor hygiene habits.

That would be parts of the United State of America.
And includes some urban areas as well.

After decades of out-of-control illegal immigration.

That's why we have writers the caliber of Victor Davis Hanson writing
books like "Mexifornia".

Good luck telling any christian in the US that any of the OT dietary rules apply to them! Regardless of what medical science is telling us, there is no convincing them that the rules are anything but part of "the old law."
But then I suspect I am preaching to the choir.

"20 years and still can't speak english....."

Absolutely no need to speak English in Houston. There are entire portions of the city that do no speak English. If there was a need, he probably would have learned a word or two by now.

I wasn't slighting Houston -- I live there for a couple of decades myself, and my youngest still resides there.

It ought to make us all feel real good that people who work in food services no longer have to pass a health screening. They just show up and are put to work. Who knows what they may be carrying? They may be told to wash their hands after going to the bathroom, but how many sneeze, cough or rub their eyes, noses & mouths and never wash their hands? Those of us who avoid eating out and may be feeling a bit smug should also take into consideration how fresh produce is handled in the supermarket.

I sure hope your practice doesn’t include much treatment of parasitic diseases, because you are wrong. I suspect you weren’t paying much attention to the lectures on parasitology that you may or may not have had in medical school. Does the term visceral larval migrans ring a bell? Did anyone tell you about the peculiarities of Taenia solium and how its immature stages can invade the tissues of humans (giving rise in some unfortunate cases to “brain worm”? How about hydatid disease? And a whole bunch of other worms. Better borrow an introductory text book and bone up on the subject before you kill someone.

And I would say that the best way to avoid the disease would be to develop stricter regulation of overcrowded hog operations, but then again, I’m no expert on illegal immigration...
