Nope, No Mad Cow Disease Here
February 10, 2011
Mad Cow Disease:
Mad Cow Disease:Two cases of rare degenerative brain disorder in Marin County, Calif. are not – we repeat – not mad cow disease and pose no public health threat, Erin Allday reports for the San Francisco Chronicle. Carry on!
Heart Health: Despite two big heart-related public awareness campaigns this month, here are five heart screening tests you may not need, Frederik Joelving and Genevra Pittman report for Reuters.
Dental Health: Despite having more than their share of tooth problems from cigarettes, smokers are more likely than nonsmokers to stay away from the dentist for years, threatening their health, Mike Stobbe reports for the Associated Press.
Nutrition: First schoolkids, now military personnel are the targets of eat-right programs to prevent obesity, as Michelle Obama kicked off a new Pentagon initiative to add more fruits, veggies and whole grains to military diets, Deborah Charles reports for Reuters.

Drug Abuse: A unbelievably big meth bust in Mexico certainly has health implications for the United States: just think of the overdoses that might not occur now that 13 million doses worth $4 billion have been taken off the streets.
