    Third world migrants continue to enrich Germany with exotic diseases that were rare or nonexistent just a few years ago. TB, scabies and a parasite that attacks the liver are a few of the diseases brought in to Germany from third world countries. Also on the rise are rubella, leprosy, typhus and whooping cough.

    The widow of a scientist who killed himself in fear he was about to lose his job at troubled bio-tech start-up Theranos has told of the company's paranoid culture. Ian Gibbons, the head scientist at the blood test company, died after taking an overdose of painkillers in May 2013 within hours of being summoned for a meeting. According to his widow, Rochelle, he had found faults in machines the company claimed would 'change the world' by being able to diagnose diseases from a single pinprick of a patient's blood. Having recently been diagnosed with cancer, he stopped going to work...

    Florida health officials who have been testing thousands of residents for Zika virus said Wednesday they found another infection: dengue virus. The health department said it confirmed a case of locally acquired dengue virus, the second this year in the state and the first in Miami. Dengue is a close relative of Zika and it is spread by the same mosquitoes. Health experts say anywhere you find dengue, you are likely to find Zika. It's so closely related that tests often mix up the two viruses, as well as a third relative: chikungunya. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention...

    Earlier this month, an outbreak of anthrax in northern Russia caused the death of a 12-year-old boy and his grandmother and put 90 people in the hospital. These deadly spores – which had not been seen in the Arctic since 1941 – also spread to 2,300 caribou. Russian troops trained in biological warfare were dispatched to the Yamalo-Nenets region to evacuate hundreds of the indigenous, nomadic people and quarantine the disease. Americans are likely to associate anthrax with the mysterious white powder that was mailed to news media and US Senate offices in the weeks following 11 September 2001....

    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration opened the door on Tuesday to a change in its blood donor deferral recommendations, which currently prohibit donations from gay men for a year following their last sexual encounter in order to reduce the risk of transmitting HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. In December the FDA overturned a 30-year ban on all blood donations from men who have sex with men, saying the change was based on science showing an indefinite ban was not necessary to prevent transmission of the human immunodeficiency virus. The FDA is now signaling it may go further. Gay...

    Although there are many reasons to oppose the normalization of homosexuality, this reason alone would be enough: it represents an enormous risk to human health. According to a recent and extensive survey, homosexuals have "excess health problems" compared to sexually normal people. They suffer disproportionately from "impaired physical and mental health, heavy alcohol consumption, and heavy cigarette use." The National Health Interview Survey, which has been conducted since 1957, included a question about sexual preference for the first time in 2013 and 2014. The results are astounding and alarming for anyone who cares about people who are trapped in a...

    On May 19th, a piece was posted on The Coach’s Team entitled The Deadliest Disease of All. One paragraph states: “It is clear that some of the illegal aliens who are sneaking into our country are bringing deadly diseases with them. Small pox, Chicken pox, measles, scabies, TB, Cholera and an assortment of other dangerous, communicable diseases can be found in the holding facilities that house these people.” One of our readers commented: "Bringing small pox"? Really? Smallpox, which has been eliminated in nature... is being brought to the US by illegal aliens. Citation needed.” A brief description of the...

    Formerly eradicated diseases are surging and now we have the Zika virusWhen facing the massive problems associated with an open border, deluges of illegal immigration, and now even government sponsored surges of so-called "refugees," we naturally must discuss our concern about terrorism and violent crime. That, however, is only part of the threat. The uncontrolled and chaotic violation this nation brought to us by President Obama's immigration and refugee schemes pose a number of threats to the homeland as insidious and deadly as the Islamic jihadi. Viruses we had finally eliminated from our lives are returning, and others we should...

    If you've never heard of leishmaniasis, you're lucky — and you probably live in a developed country. It's an illness caused by parasites that are carried by tiny blood-sucking insects called sandflies. The painful, hard-to-treat sores it leaves on skin and internal organs can be disfiguring and even sometimes deadly. And while leishmaniasis mostly occurs in Central and South America, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia for now, it's moving north into the United States, as Maryn McKenna reports in a blog post. In a story for National Geographic News, McKenna describes how about half of the members of an...

    The mandatory imposition of the World Health Organization's classification of diseases (ICD-10th revision) upon the practice of medicine and all allied professions including psychology on October 1, 2015 is a major step in the radical transformation of the United States into a subjugated territory of a one-world regime under the auspices of the United Nations. ICD-10 imposes the pre-scientific mentality and anti-American jealousy of backward peoples by undermining one hundred years of research and improved treatment methods in psychology and psychiatry. And the American medical establishment – providers, insurers, researchers, corporations and business, courts, and social services agencies – are...

    BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - Birmingham Police Lt. Joe Roberts says a person has arrived at UAB Hospital with possible Ebola symptoms. This is not a confirmed case of Ebola at this time. The residence where the patient has been staying, in the 1600 block of 17th Street Southwest, is being "isolated" by authorities. Battalion Chief Buddy Wilks with Birmingham Fire and Rescue Service said his crews were called to the scene for a general illness earlier Tuesday. He said once they assessed the patient's symptoms and determined the patient had traveled to West Africa, they contacted UAB Hospital and received...

    Democrats were gleeful when Republicans Chris Christie and Rand Paul got tangled this week in the debate over the Disneyland measles outbreak, until similar words from the pasts of President Obama and 2016 front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton came out. Mr. Christie walked back his recent comments calling for “balance” and a role for “parental choice” on childhood vaccines, saying in a Monday statement that “with a disease like measles, there’s no question kids should be vaccinated.” But the Democratic posturing as the party of science was short-lived. Several websites promptly dug up a comment from Mr. Obama during the 2008...

    Cue the pro-vaccine crowd's b.s. arguments as to why this is doesn't matter and we should all keep taking the risk shooting up our children in the hopes this won't happen to us. Via Daily Mail: A five-year-old girl has died in hospital three days after developing a strain of the flu that she was vaccinated against – as a deadly outbreak of the virus continues to sweep across the country. Keira Driscoll was prescribed steroids and a nebulizer at a Quick Care clinic after she started feeling unwell with a cough and a fever at her home in Clark...

    The Queen warned last night that focusing too much attention on the Ebola outbreak could lead to an upsurge in other deadly diseases such as malaria. At an event alongside world leaders in the science of infectious diseases yesterday, she asked ‘piercing’ questions about how the disease ought to be controlled. And the monarch said she worried that Ebola, which has claimed 5,000 lives already, risked overshadowing the risk from other deadlier diseases like malaria, which kills the same number every week.

    "This is the biggest and most complex Ebola outbreak in history," Dr. Tom Frieden, director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said in a statement. "It will take many months, and it won't be easy, but Ebola can be stopped," he said. "We know what needs to be done." Ebola spreads through contact with organs and bodily fluids such as blood, saliva, urine and other secretions of infected people. It has no known cure.

    Despite concerns around the globe that the Ebola virus may continue to spread and mutate into something even more deadly, the director of the CDC attempted to assuage fears about the possibility of an outbreak on U.S. soil. “It is not a potential of Ebola spreading widely in the U.S.,” director Thomas Friedman told reporters on a conference call Thursday. “That is not in the cards.” But while the CDC downplays the potential threat, emergency planners behind the scenes have been getting ready since as early as April of this year. In a report presented to Congress while the virus...

    The number of foreigners who successfully filed asylum claims in the United States almost tripled from 2012 to 2013, up to 30,393. That’s 10 times the number from 2008, when President Barack Obama was elected, and it is evidence his immigration officials are approving most of the asylum requests from the growing wave of Central American migrants. If you came illegally to the U.S. seeking asylum in 2013, you had better than a four-in-five chance of successfully filing an asylum claim. That’s up from a three-in-five chance in 2008. The migrants include mothers with children, and youths who have been...

Then consider the fact that working at this job really didn’t make much of a difference because the president undermined most of what you were working for. Welcome to the US Border Patrol. Border Patrol agents have faced the possibility of being shot at for years, mostly by illegal drug traffickers. Ever since the Obama administration walked thousands...
