Polio-like Illness Continues
Ninth child dies in New Jersey facility suffering adenovirus outbreak A ninth child has died in a New Jersey rehabilitation facility that is currently suffering an adenovirus outbreak, according to officials. The child, whose name has not been released, died late Saturday night at the Wanaque Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation in Haskell, New Jersey. This latest death was a confirmed case of adenovirus, according to the New Jersey Department of Health. Twenty-five pediatric cases of adenovirus have been connected to the outbreak at this facility, officials said. A staff member at the facility also became ill, but has since recovered. “This is a tragic situation, and our thoughts are with the families who are grieving right now,” New Jersey Health Commissioner Dr. Shereef Elnahal said in a press release. “We are working every day to ensure all infection control protocols are continuously followed and closely monitoring the situation at the facility.”
CDC’s handling of polio-like illness criticized by its own advisers The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s own medical advisers are criticizing the federal health agency for being slow to respond to a polio-like disease that’s struck hundreds of children over the past six years. “Frustrated and disappointed — I think that’s exactly how most of us feel,” said Dr. Keith Van Haren, one of the CDC advisers on AFM and an assistant professor of neurology at the Stanford University School of Medicine. Van Haren and other doctors who care for these children say the agency has been slow to gather data and to guide pediatricians and emergency room physicians on how to diagnose and treat the children struck with the disease, acute flaccid myelitis. “This is the CDC’s job. This is what they’re supposed to do well. And it’s a source of frustration to many of us that they’re apparently not doing these things,” said Dr. Kenneth Tyler, a professor and chair of the department of neurology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine and another adviser to the CDC on AFM.
World Stroke Day 2018
Today Is World Stroke Day. Here’s What to Know WORLD STROKE DAY IS A great opportunity to get up-to-date on the symptoms of stroke, who’s at risk and lifestyle changes that can reduce the risk of stroke. Stroke, an injury in the brain that occurs after blood flow in the brain is blocked or a when a blood vessel in the brain ruptures, is the fifth leading cause of death in America. It’s also a major cause of brain damage. If you think you’re having a stroke, call 911 immediately, because treatments are most effective if they’re given as soon as possible. Who’s at Risk for Stroke? People over 55 have a greater chance of stroke, and the risk increases as you age. People with high blood pressure or diabetes are most at risk for stroke. According to the American Heart Association, about 6.6 million people who have had strokes are alive today.
Peanut Allergies – An Epidemic?
Why peanut reactions have become ‘almost epidemic’—and what to do about food allergies Among children, allergies to peanuts and other types of food continues to climb, but experts say there is some progress in controlling or preventing life-threatening reactions. A food allergy, defined as a reaction that occurs when the immune system attacks harmless proteins, is an ailment that drugmakers are working to treat. One method involves treatments that introduce small amounts of peanuts to allergy sufferers, which gradually increases the amount to build tolerance. The exploding segment of the population suffering from certain food ailments is skyrocketing, and experts are stumped on the reasons why. A study from the Jaffe Food Allergy Institute at New York’s Mount Sinai hospital found that from 1997 to 2008, peanut allergies tripled from 1-in-250 children to 1-in-70.
START THE WEEK OFF RIGHT: The role of probiotics in food allergies A study done on children with peanut allergies shows that when they were given a probiotic called Lactobacillus Rhamnosus with a peanut protein for 18 months, almost 80 percent of them were able to eat peanuts with no allergic reactions. These children were followed for four years. Food allergies have risen dramatically in recent decades, with the peanut allergy being one of the most deadly. Researchers estimate up to 15 million Americans have food allergies, including 5.9 million children under the age 18. That’s one in 13 children or roughly two in every classroom. About 30 percent of children with food allergies are allergic to more than one food. The symptoms of an allergic reaction to food can range from mild (itchy mouth and/or a few hives) to severe (throat tightening and/or difficulty breathing). Anaphylaxis is a serious allergic reaction that is sudden at the onset and can cause death.
The Silent Middle?
In a highly partisan era, those who dislike both sides could have the deciding votes In a highly partisan era, those who dislike both sides could have the deciding votes In this and every election, both sides devote huge resources to getting their partisans to turn out and vote — “motivating the base,” in the jargon of politics. But in many close races in California and around the country, a different group, those who don’t like either party or its leaders, could hold the decisive votes. The “hold your nose and vote” brigade makes up a sizable chunk of the electorate, according to the latest USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times poll. With election day just over a week away, the poll indicates they lean toward the Democrats. That’s one reason Democrats remain favored to win back control of the House. Overall, this latest poll, conducted last week, finds Democrats leading 57% to 40% when likely voters were asked for which party’s candidates they plan to vote, a 17-point edge.
Hour 2 – Advanced Medicine with Dr. Rashid Buttar!
Dr. Buttar is back to talk about what’s happening in the world of health news. Here’s what we have in store for you today:
2018 World Series: Red Sox, Dodgers fans stand up to cancer during Game 4 In recent history, Major League Baseball has established traditions during the World Series. We see the Roberto Clemente Award handed out. We see the Hank Aaron Award presented to a player from each league. We see the Mariano Rivera AL Reliever of the Year and Trevor Hoffman NL Reliever of the Year. And during Game 4 on TV, we see MLB‘s annual Stand Up To Cancer placard moment. The entire stadium of fans holds up cards while standing up along with all the players, coaches, media and everyone else in the ballpark. We’ve seen moving moments such as last year in Houston when manager A.J. Hinch’s card said “Kevin Towers” on it. It was news to most people and the baseball world has since lost Towers. This year’s moment was the eighth annual Stand Up To Cancer World Series placard event. As the founding donor of SU2C, MLB and its 30 Clubs have committed more than $43 million to SU2C’s innovative research.

Question of The Day!
Hi RSB, Super Don, and Dr. Buttar, My daughter has been getting occasional nosebleeds since she was about 4 years old. She just turned 13 and the frequency of the bleeds has really ramped up. She has huge worm like clots that either come out her nostrils or go down her throat. I’ve inquired about this during her physical exams, but the only advice we’ve gotten is to use a humidifier and to drink more water. We live in Massachusetts and the heaters are going on and I know that can be a trigger, but the frequency and the amount of blood is disturbing me. I was hoping to get your perspectives on this before I take her in to be looked at. I want to be informed on this so they don’t push us into anything drastic. I don’t know what to expect. I know you haven’t physically seen her, but what do you think?
Thank you, your daily listener, Johnna T.
Study questions certain treatments for diabetic patients at high risk for heart disease New research suggests that attempts to normalize blood pressure, and cholesterol may have negative long-term effects on kidney health in adults with type 2 diabetes who are at high risk for cardiovascular disease. The results appear in an upcoming issue of the Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology (CJASN) and will be presented at ASN Kidney Week 2018. Type 2 diabetes greatly increases the risk for both cardiovascular disease and chronic kidney disease. Therefore, it is especially important to protect the heart and kidney health of patients with type 2 diabetes. In these patients, aggressive control of blood sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol has resulted in conflicting short-term effects on kidney health. To determine the long-term kidney effects of these interventions, Amy K. Mottl, MD (University of North Carolina Kidney Center), Timothy E. Craven, MSPH (Wake Forest School of Medicine), and their colleagues examined information on more than 10,000 participants in ACCORDION, which is an extension phase of the ACCORD trial, a multifactorial intervention study in people with type 2 diabetes at high risk for cardiovascular disease.
