    It's not just 'football fever' that could spread at this year's World Cup. World Health Organization-backed experts fear 'camel flu' — a deadlier cousin of Covid — might, too. Dozens of people have fallen ill with Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) in host nation Qatar over the past decade.  It kills up to a third of everyone who gets infected.  Disease experts listed MERS as one of eight potential 'infection risks' during the four-week long tournament.  Covid and monkeypox were named as the two most likely threats. Camels are thought to be the natural host of the virus, which is from the same family as the virus behind the Covid pandemic MERS SYMPTOMS: Its symptoms include a fever, cough, breathing difficulties, diarrhoea and vomiting RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next GPs doing fewest face-to-face appointments are 'named and...

    Spending too much time sitting down every day can lead to an early death, a new study finds. Researchers at Simon Fraser University, in the Vancouver, Canada, area,  found that people who spend significant parts of their day sitting are more likely to suffer from cardio vascular disease or death from the disease. The researchers warn that the amount of time people around the world spend sitting has increased in recent years, largely because of the growing availability of technology like computers and smart phones. Sedentary lifestyles have been blamed for many health issues across the world, including upward trends of obesity and diabetes in the U.S. and across Europe. People who spend more than eight hours a day sitting in developing countries (yellow line) are at a nearly 25% risk of all-cause mortality People who sit for more than eight hours a day are also significantly more likely to develop heart disease in their lifetime, the study found Researchers, who published their findings Wednesday in JAMA Cardiology, gathered data from 105,000 people in 21 countries across an average of...
    People who 'feel sick' or have rashes should not attend summer parties or festivals in case they have monkeypox, health chiefs in Chicago have warned.  The city's Department of Public Health insisted it gave the warning to ensure residents could make 'informed choices' about gathering in places where the tropical disease could spread. Chicago's monkeypox tally doubled to eight this weekend, with at least one case linked back to the annual fetish festival Mr Leather which took place last month. It is thought to be the first city to issue the warning, although the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) also warned people who were ill or had rashes to stay away from others earlier this month. America recorded another seven monkeypox cases yesterday bringing its tally to a total of 72 infections. Four of the new cases were in New York City, while one each was in Massachusetts and Pennsylvania. It was not clear where the seventh was recorded. Globally, more than 1,800 cases of the rash-causing virus have been detected in at least 45 countries outside of...
    A 50-year-old mother-of-eight from Utah has given birth to her own grandchild after offering to be her daughter's surrogate following years of fertility struggles.  Chalise Smith, a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, welcomed her 25-year-old daughter Kaitlyn Munoz's baby girl, Alayna Kait-Chalise Munoz, on May 17.  The Hee Haw Farms owner carried the baby to term after having embryos implanted via in vitro fertilization, but the newborn is genetically Kaitlyn and her husband Miguel Munoz's child.   Chalise told Good Morning America that she didn't make the decision to become her daughter's surrogate and embark on her ninth pregnancy 'lightheartedly.' 'It was on my mind daily. I thought about it. I prayed about it, just wondering and asking if this was a direction or path for me, and before I even told Kaitlyn and Miguel or my husband, I just kept these thoughts to myself,' she recalled.  Chalise Smith welcomed her 25-year-old daughter Kaitlyn Munoz's baby girl, Alayna Kait-Chalise Munoz, on May 17, after committing to being her surrogate Kaitlyn and her husband, Miguel Munoz, also have a two-year-old son, Callahan, whom she...

    WHEN Cathy Read’s arm went numb and her heart started beating faster, she didn’t think much of it. It was only after several similar episodes that her husband Chris persuaded her to go to hospital. 11Cathy Reed was shocked to find out she'd had a heart attack at just 47 after her arm went numb and her heart started beating faster There, the couple — from Looe in Cornwall — were shocked when Cathy, 47, was told she’d had a HEART ATTACK. Not once did Cathy, a communications manager, suspect it. She now admits she thought heart disease was more of a “man’s disease”. “All the heart attack symptoms you see in the movies are had by men,” she says. “But I didn’t realise until I had a heart attack myself.” While we are all aware of a gender gap when it comes to pay in the workplace, there is another dangerous inequality in terms of healthcare. A new study, published last week, found men fare better than women when they turn up at hospital with signs of a heart...

    SAN ANTONIO – Two San Antonio women, who are coworkers and best friends, will both go under the knife Friday as one is donating a kidney to help save the other. Crystal Villarreal and Karen Crane, who both work at Pediatric Ear, Nose & Throat Institute of South Texas, have been friends for eight years. Villarreal wore a bridesmaid’s dress during Crane’s wedding just last month and now, Crane will wear a surgical gown for Villarreal. Villarreal suffers from polycystic kidney disease and is in the end stage of renal failure. “Polycystic kidney disease is an inherited disease that came from my dad’s side of the family,” said Villarreal. She explained that it makes her tired and fatigued and told KSAT that she has to “nap frequently throughout the day and I can’t do a lot of my normal physical activities that I used to do before because I just get so tired.” Villarreal, who was diagnosed when she was 19-years-old, said she went to a transplant center in July to add herself to the list for a transplant from...
    Joe Biden is trolling his opponent in the upcoming election with a fake coronavirus website that claims to show the president’s scheme to get America back on its feet. But when a user clicks on the link, they are seemingly taken to a missing webpage. “After eight months of this pandemic, we finally found President Trump’s plan to beat COVID-19,” a tweet from Biden read. “Everyone who’s seen President Trump’s COVID-19 plan says it’s tremendous.” The link takes users to trumpcovidplan.com, which pops up with the error “Not Found.” “The Trump plan to defeat the Coronavirus and reopen safely does not exist,” the site reads. If an individual clicks on the “read more” link, they are given additional information about Trump’s handling of the pandemic. “Donald Trump has had eight months to use science, public health, and the power of the Presidency to reopen safely and save American lives. But we are barely better equipped to manage the COVID-19 threat today than we were eight months ago,” the site explained. “Donald Trump has failed to lead and Americans are paying...
