Measles in U.S. causes alarm

New Jersey residents may have been exposed to measles after two people with the virus visited several places, including Newark Liberty International Airport, in recent weeks, the state’s health officials announced. New Jersey Department of Health said a person with measles stopped in New Jersey on April 30 while on a tour bus traveling from Niagara Falls, New York to Washington, D.C. In the second unrelated incident, a resident in Bergen County contracted measles after coming in contact with an international traveler who had the contagious virus between late April and early May. The two infected people passed through several places, including Towne Centre at Englewood apartments from April 24 to May 2, Renaissance Office Center in Englewood on April 30, Columbia Travel Center on April 30 and Newark airport on May 2, NJ.com reported. Health officials urged anyone who hasn’t received a measles vaccine to immediately do so.

Why Ebola keeps coming back

The Ebola virus has reared its head again, this time in the Democratic Republic of Congo. While it is impossible to predict exactly where and when the next outbreak will occur, we now know much more about how to prevent a crisis. The news of an Ebola outbreak in the town of Bikoro in north-west DRC instantly brings to mind the horror of the epidemic that took 11,000 lives and infected 28,000 people in West Africa between 2014 and 2016.

It is a nightmare no one wants to relive — or should have to. Since 4 April in the DRC, there have been more than 30 possible cases — involving 18 deaths  — although only two incidents have so far been confirmed as Ebola.

diet to tackle Blood Sugar levels

New research finds that a very low-carbohydrate diet actually helps patients with Type 1 diabetes to manage their blood sugar levels. What are some important things to know about low-carbohydrate diets? A new study published in the journal Pediatrics shows how a group of patients with Type 1 diabetes were able to control their blood sugar levels with the help of a very low-carbohydrate diet. To gather their findings, researchers conducted a survey in which over 300 people with Type 1 diabetes participated, 130 of whom were children whose parents had consented to their participation. Interestingly, researchers found that the patients who consumed a very low-carbohydrate and high-protein diet while also taking lower doses of insulin than normally required, had exceptional control of their blood sugar levels.
