Medical stuff

cross posting from my medical blog:

Is smallpox a new disease?

and if so, does this mean a similar epidemic could pop out from nowhere?

Bubonic plague: Not just for rats anymore.

Cat related outbreak in Idaho, and a PJMedia article about killing plague carrying squirrels in 1918.

Could CRSPR cure hemophilia? they are working on it.

The controversial Down's Syndrome video.

a discussion of the syndrome, with a small comment about Pearl Buck's daughter, who had PKU (a disease that now is screened for and prevented by diet restrictions).

RatFever: Leptospirosis.

We see cases in the Philippines after every typhoon or flood, where people wade through ankle deep dirty water.
