    Maggots found in Whole Foods meat case, health officials say they’re not moving fast enough to fix the problem Whole Foods claims to be “America’s Healthiest Grocery Store,” and that they, “maintain the strictest quality standards in the industry.” Such claims might start to be questioned, however, after a disgusting discovery at one of their San Francisco locations on Monday, April 21. Last week, KRON 4 News exclusively reported that maggots were found in a meat case. Now, KRON 4 News is reporting that the San Francisco Department of Public Health (SFDPH) claims Whole Foods hasn’t worked quickly enough to...

    Parents in Rhode Island are being warned that their children could succumb to horrifying infestations of nasal maggots worming in their noses, internal bleeding and lung infections if they continue snorting Smarties candies. The skin-crawling consequences of the unusual trend which seeks to imitate cocaine users seen on television, are caused by a condition called nasal myiasis—which occurs when flies lay larvae eggs inside the nose—attracted by the rotting candy rammed up inside the lining. According to officials in Portsmouth Middle School, the trend is a “widespread phenomenon” that has been sweeping YouTube in recent years and has involved over...

    Enlarge Image Creepy, yet calming. Maggots' excretions soothe inflamed wounds, speeding healing. Credit: Cory Doctorow Yes, maggots are creepy, crawly, and slimy. But that slime is a remarkable healing balm, used by battlefield surgeons for centuries to close wounds. Now, researchers say they've figured out how the fly larvae work their magic: They suppress our immune system. Maggots are efficient consumers of dead tissue. They munch on rotting flesh, leaving healthy tissue practically unscathed. Physicians in Napoleon's army used the larvae to clean wounds. In World War I, American surgeon William Baer noticed that soldiers with maggot-infested gashes didn't...

    (NewsCore) - Italian police arrested a Naples butcher after discovering worm-infested meat for sale in his store that was 10 years past its expiry date, the ANSA news agency reported Friday. Shocked food safety inspectors discovered pasta and biscuits crawling with parasites, rotting meats and dairy products, and olives covered in mold in the store of horrors. The butcher tampered with expiry dates on the products in order to keep on selling the items, even though some were a decade old, the report said. Police arrested the butcher on suspicion of endangering public health.

    Snakes on a plane may just be the stuff of daft action movies, but maggots on a plane are, it seems, all too real a threat.

    With health care reform in a political "timeout," President Obama and Capitol Hill Democrats plan to pursue legislation that would create jobs and strengthen the economy in hopes of winning back a disenchanted public. Democrats hope to release a jobs bill this week or next, said Sen. Tom Harkin of Iowa. He said it will likely include funding for construction and infrastructure projects. "We can't just get paralyzed by this health care problem," Mr. Harkin said Friday on Capitol Hill. Republicans, meanwhile, say they have a plan to create jobs as well.

But it was not until the bumps started moving that doctors realised Dallas had five live maggots inside his head.

    AN elderly Hong Kong man is being treated in hospital after doctors found he was being eaten alive by maggots, health chiefs said today. They said the 67-year-old could have been gnawed to death by the parasites had he not been rushed into care. The grisly affliction is known as human myiasis, a rare disease that results from flies infesting wounds or sores. Usually a problem for older people who have trouble looking after themselves, the flies lay their eggs in fresh or weeping wounds and sometimes even in the mouth, nose and ears. The hatched larvae then feed from...

The amount marks the first time that the program has collected more than $3 million in monthly revenues, even though only 2.2 percent of more than 3 million vehicles monitored in March were cited for speeding, according to police statistics. The percentage was near 30 percent when the program began in 2001. The percentage in March was the second lowest for a month, with the lowest at 2 percent in...

    Gov. Jeb Bush said it's not fair to punish the children of illegal immigrants if they're trying to build a better life through education. The governor supports a controversial bill that would let illegal immigrants' children pay in-state college tuition rates, but the bill still faces an uphill battle in the current political climate, WESH 2 News reported. Florida requires children of illegal immigrants to pay out-of-state tuition rates at colleges and universities. That means a college education would cost at least $60,000 more for the son or daughter of an undocumented worker. Bush said that's not fair to teens...

    Many argue that communism will never be possible because of "human nature". The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. • This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...

    Maggots are being used as a treatment at a state-of-the-art Scottish hospital. The larvae have been reintroduced at the £184 million ($436 million) New Edinburgh Royal Infirmary to treat wounds on patients with diabetes. The maggots, used in medicine until the 20th century, eat dead flesh on dirty, infected lesions, leaving a clean wound that begins to heal, doctors said. Matthew Young, a diabetes consultant, pioneered the renewed use of maggots at the diabetic foot clinic he runs at the hospital.
