Mysterious Polio-Like Illness Plaguing Children Stumps CDC
Published November 17, 2016 | Risk & Failure Reports
As of September 2016, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has confirmed 89 cases of acute flaccid myelitis (AFM), also often referred to as Acute Flaccid Paralysis (AFP), a neuro-logical disease whose symptoms resemble those of poliovirus and non-polio entero-viruses, but for which no cause or treatment is known. The CDC recorded its first case of AFM in August of 2014. Through December 2014, there were 120 people confirmed with AFM onset in 34 states. In 2015, 15 people across 16 states presented with AFM.

Sugar Linked to Risk of Alzheimer's Disease
Published November 17, 2016 | Immune & Brain Disorders
It is hard to comprehend the degree of damage perpetrated by sugar, one of the most wildly popular and ubiquitous ingredients in the typical Western diet. Consumption of sugar has already been identified as a leading risk factor in obesity, tooth decay, fatty liver disease, insulin resistance leading to diabetes and the metabolic syndrome, cancer, and heart disease. It has been likened to any other addictive substance in its effects on the brain and its manipulation of dopamine and serotonin levels. Sugar has also been linked to an increased risk of developing Alzheimer's disease.

Moving Out of the House That Fear Built: Zika
Published November 17, 2016 | Opinion
On a recent trip to Costa Rica I discovered that fear has found its way to my "happy place"-or rather it infected it with Zika virus hysteria. This had been coming, I suppose-with the influx of ex-pats come modern conveniences and the com-forts of home and I have felt the world creeping in little by little. Alas, the discom-forts of home have also arrived... in the form of pandemic fears. It's sad, but not surprising that a campaign to educate Costa Ricans about Zika virus precedes a seatbelt campaign. Families that ride four to a motorbike with puppy in...

Published November 17, 2016 | Editorial Bias
Tragically, sixth grader Piper Lowery from Port Orchard, Washington died on Sat. Jan. 1, 2016 after a week of illness. Reportedly, she died from H1N1 influenza. She had not gotten a seasonal flu shot. A week earlier, Piper began feeling sick with a high fever and a sore throat. Her mother, Peggy Lowery, also had symptoms of influenza during that time. It was not reported whether Mrs. Lowery had gotten a flu shot. According to news reports, Piper's mother took her very ill daughter to the doctor three times in the same week that she died-on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Piper began taking the anti-viral drug, Tamiflu, on Tuesday.

Barbara Loe Fisher on the Importance of Balanced Cellular and Humoral Immune System Responses
Published November 17, 2016 | Field Notes
Humans and infectious microbes have coexisted for as long as humans have walked the earth, and the human immune system has developed an efficient way of dealing with viral and bacterial infections. When infected with a microorganism, the body's first line of defense is for the cellular or 'innate' part of the immune system to mount an inflammatory response. This response then signals the humoral or 'learned' part of the immune system to produce anti-inflammatory chemicals and antibodies that resolve inflammation, so that healing can take place, and establish future resistance to re-infection.
