    A woman has claimed she witnessed bugs leave her body in her stool after she gave up meat and became a raw vegan.  Holistic nutritionist Larissa Arteaga, 28, from California, became a raw vegan to improve her health after struggling when witnessing others around her eat dead animal bodies. Insisting that a lot of meat, especially raw meat and pork, harbor parasites, Larissa detoxed her body from animal products using herbal formulas after she became a strict raw vegan, witnessing the parasites coming out of her body when she went to the bathroom. Larissa began her health journey almost 10 years ago, searching for a way to improve her health, as she was pre-diabetic with insulin resistance, high cholesterol, severe acne and depression.  Larissa Arteaga, 28, from California, has claimed she witnessed the bugs leave her body in her stool after she gave up meat and became a raw vegan The holistic nutritionist became a raw vegan in 2017 to improve her health after struggling when witnessing others around her eat dead animal bodies A raw vegan diet excludes all...
    Medieval friars were nearly twice as likely as townspeople to be infected by intestinal parasites, new analysis of remains found in Cambridge shows. This is despite most Augustinian monasteries of the period having latrine blocks and hand-washing facilities, unlike the houses of ordinary working people.  Experts said the difference in parasitic infection may be down to monks manuring crops in friary gardens with their own faeces, or purchasing fertiliser containing human or pig excrement. The study, carried out by researchers from the University of Cambridge, is the first to compare parasite prevalence in people from the same medieval community who were living different lifestyles, and so might have differed in their infection risk. The population of medieval Cambridge was made up of residents of monasteries, friaries and nunneries of various major Christian orders, along with merchants, traders, craftsmen, labourers, farmers, and staff and students at the early university. Cambridge archaeologists investigated samples of soil taken from around the pelvises of adult remains from the former cemetery of All Saints by the Castle parish church, as well as from the grounds...
    A fortuneteller in Riverside was arrested last week on charges that he duped a woman into giving him $50,000 to expel parasites from her body and rid her family of a curse, Riverside police said. Andres Pena Meneses — who went by the name Carlos — was charged with grand theft and theft by false pretenses, officials said. He was released from Robert Presley Detention Center after posting a $57,000 bail. Meneses told the woman that he needed hundreds of dollars to help her with the imaginary parasites, according to a Riverside police department news release. He also told the woman her family was cursed and that her children were in trouble, police said. The woman ultimately paid him more than $50,000, officials said. Meneses had a prior conviction in Chicago for posing as a fraudulent “faith healer,” according to police. Customers at the fortunetelling business told detectives conducting a search that Meneses asked them to bring their bed mattresses, which he would tear open and claim to find a live snake inside along with “demonic type items and letters...
    RIVERSIDE (CBSLA) — A Riverside man who police say was posing as a fortune teller faces charges of grand theft Friday for allegedly convincing a woman to pay him more than $50,000 to clear her body of parasites and rid her and her family of a curse. Andres Pena Meneses, 31, was arrested on Tuesday, and a search of his home and business turned up a “significant amount of cash,” a voodoo doll, tarot cards, altars, religious and satanic-type objects, and a small live snake that police had been using as part of his fraud, according to Riverside police.

A woman told police she had visited the business to have her fortune read by a man she described as a Columbian national who went by the name of “Carlos.” She claimed she paid Carlos several...
    WASHINGTON (AP) — Health experts and medical groups are pushing to stamp out the growing use of a decades-old parasite drug to treat COVID-19, warning that it can cause harmful side effects and that there’s little evidence it helps. With a fourth wave of infections, more Americans are turning to ivermectin, a cheap drug used to kill worms and other parasites in humans and animals. Federal health officials have seen a surge in prescriptions this summer, accompanied by worrying increases in reported overdoses. The drug was even given to inmates at a jail in northwest Arkansas for COVID-19, despite federal warnings against that use. On Wednesday, podcaster Joe Rogan, who has been dismissive of the COVID-19 vaccine, announced he had tested positive for the virus and was taking the medication. Ivermectin has been promoted by Republican lawmakers, conservative talk show hosts and some doctors, amplified via social media to millions of Americans who remain resistant to getting vaccinated. It has also been widely used in other countries, including India and Brazil. This week, the top U.S. professional groups for...
    On Thursday, the Springfield News-Leader released a blistering fact-check of Springfield City Councilor Angela Romine, who caused a stir on Monday when she claimed that COVID-19 already has multiple cures so there's no need to get vaccinated. "We're not prescribing a certain prescription because it's for off-label use, which could help people that are sick with COVID, and it's not being used because it was politicized... and demonized," said Romine in a speech to the council. "Right now we're trying even a vaccine that has severe side effects, but we're not willing to try a protocol that has helped people. One doctor even came out and said she's treated 900 patients and she's had zero deaths, yet we're not prescribing them here." According to the report, she later clarified that the two drugs she meant are hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin. Hydroxychloroquine, a drug used to treat malaria and arthritis, has been a popular alternative treatment for COVID-19 ever since former President Donald Trump claimed it helped him prevent the disease, and some people have even drank fish tank cleaner because...
    More On: property taxes War on tax deduction cap is leading to divisions among Democrats Gov. Cuomo signs tax hikes, calls on feds to lift cap on SALT deductions How taxes turned margarine pink, made ships sink, and more strange results Connecticut’s zoning laws scrutinized amid hot debate to ‘desegregate’ The IRS extended the filing deadline for income-tax returns this year, but in New York, another tax season is now in high gear: local tax-grievance time. Between now and mid-June, New York state homeowners will file for reductions in their property assessments, deluging local assessment-review boards in Nassau, Suffolk and Westchester Counties with appeals — many promoted by a tax-grievance industry unknown in most of the country. The thousands of assessment challenges are part of a statewide property-tax assessment mess that is at its worst in New York City’s suburban counties. Real-estate taxation, the main source of revenue for local governments across the United States, rests on the technical and arcane — yet crucial — process of property reassessment. When assessments are out of date or inaccurate, so...
    Shyanne Nicole Singh, 26 (pictured), was arrested after her four-year-old daughter was hospitalized with a severe lice infestation A mother was arrested after her four year-old daughter suffered a head lice infection so severe she almost died and could barely walk after her blood oxygen levels plummeted.  Shyanne Nicole Singh, 26, was arrested earlier this week after the child was admitted to hospital in Scottsburg, Indiana last month. Police in the city, which sits 83 miles south of Indianapolis, were called to the facility by doctors horrified by the girl's infestation, according to The Lexington Herald Leader. The girl was unable to walk and needed four blood transfusions because the parasites depleted the oxygen in her blood to dangerously low levels. Her mother, Shyanne Nicole Singh, 26, has been charged with several counts of neglect, including neglect of a dependent, neglect of a dependent resulting in bodily injury, and neglect of a dependent resulting in serious bodily injury. She is due to make her first appearance in court on Friday.  According to an affidavit, seen by the Herald Leader, hospital...
    New York : Pets require a lot of care. If we decide to have one, we must guarantee not only food but also health. If we carry out a veterinary control, we will know when we should vaccinate or deworm them, but also by observing them, we will be able to know if we will have to deworm it earlier than expected. Deworming our dog is an essential task because parasites can deteriorate your health and can even kill you. This work is subject to two essential variables, which are the breed of the dog and the type of dewormer that we use. Here are some indications during deworming, but also on how we can confirm that our dog has parasites or not. Fortunately, it is not a difficult question, but quite accessible. Decay and lack of appetite may be an indication that our dog needs to be dewormed. Photo: Pixabay How do I know if my dog ​​has parasites? Fortunately for the owners, knowing if the dog has parasites or not is a simple and quick question. You...
    “Parasite” director Bong Joon Ho has been selected as jury president of the 78th Venice International Film Festival, organizers said Friday. The Oscar-winner will preside over seven jurors to hand out the festival’s top awards, including the prestigious Golden Lion. He’ll be the first South Korean to hold the post. In a statement, the director said he is, “Honored to be woven into its beautiful cinematic tradition. As president of the jury — and more importantly as a perpetual cinephile — I’m ready to admire and applaud all the great films selected by the festival. I’m filled with genuine hope and excitement.” Festival director Alberto Barbera remarked upon the historic nature of the selection. “We are immensely grateful to him for having agreed to put his passion as a cinephile attentive, inquisitive and unprejudiced, at the service of our festival,” Barbera said. “The decision to entrust the Jury to a Korean filmmaker, for the first time in the festival’s history, is also confirmation that the Venetian event embraces the cinema of the entire world, and that directors from every...
    RICHMOND (CBS SF) — The public is advised not to use Keller Beach at Miller/Knox Regional Shoreline in Richmond following reports of “swimmer’s itch” and tests showing unsafe bacteria levels. “Swimmer’s itch, also called cercarial dermatitis, appears as a skin rash caused by an allergic reaction to certain microscopic parasites that infect some birds and mammals,” according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “These parasites are released from infected snails into fresh and saltwater (such as lakes, ponds, and oceans).” Contra Costa County Environmental Health officials have issued an advisory and signage will be posted. There are no serious health effects from swimmer’s itch, but it is a nuisance for those afflicted, according to county officials. © Copyright 2020 CBS Broadcasting Inc. and Bay City News Service.

    The malaria parasite is spread by the bite of infected mosquitoes A drug-resistant strain of the parasite that causes malaria has been identified by scientists in Rwanda. The study, published in Nature, found the parasites were able to resist treatment by artemisinin – a frontline drug in the fight against the disease. This is the first time scientists have observed the resistance to the drug artemisinin in Africa. The researchers warns that this “would pose a major public health threat” in the continent. Scientists from the Institut Pasteur, in collaboration with the National Malaria Control Program in Rwanda (Rwanda Biomedical Center), the World Health Organization (WHO), Cochin Hospital and Columbia University (New York, USA) analysed blood samples from patients in Rwanda. They found one particular mutation of the parasite, resistant to artemisinin, in 19 of 257 – or 7.4% – of patients at one of the health centres they monitored. Evolution of parasites In the journal article the scientists warned that malaria parasites that developed a resistance to previous drugs are “suspected to have contributed to millions of additional...
    Parasites serve essential ecological roles, like regulating wildlife, and still are largely still left out of conservation things to do and research. Graphic credit history: Pieter Johnson/University of Colorado Boulder Parasites have a community relations dilemma. Contrary to the a lot of charismatic mammals, fishes and birds that get our awareness (and our conservation bucks), parasites are assumed of as something to eradicate — and surely not something to defend. But only 4% of acknowledged parasites can infect human beings, and the greater part in fact provide vital ecological roles, like regulating wildlife that might in any other case balloon in inhabitants sizing and turn into pests. Continue to, only about 10% of parasites have been identified and, as a result, they are primarily left out of conservation pursuits and research. An worldwide group of researchers wants to improve that. About a dozen foremost parasite ecologists, which includes University of Washington’s Chelsea Wooden, revealed in the journal Biological Conservation, which lays out an formidable world-wide conservation prepare for parasites. “Parasites are an incredibly numerous team of species, but as a...

    CARMEL, Ind. (AP) — A bishop asked a suburban Indianapolis Catholic pastor Tuesday to clarify remarks in which he compared the Black Lives Matter movement and its organizers to “maggots and parasites.” Bishop Timothy Doherty of the Diocese of Lafayette-in-Indiana said the Rev. Theodore Rothrock of St. Elizabeth Seton Catholic Church in Carmel should issue a clarification of comments that the pastor wrote Sunday in a weekly bulletin message. “The only lives that matter are their own and the only power they seek is their own,” Rothrock wrote. “They are wolves in wolves clothing, masked thieves and bandits, seeking only to devour the life of the poor and profit from the fear of others. They are maggots and parasites at best, feeding off the isolation of addiction and broken families, and offering to replace any current frustration and anxiety with more misery and greater resentment.” Doherty said he had not approved or previewed the comments. “Pastors do not submit bulletin articles or homilies to my offices before they are delivered,” Doherty said in a statement. “I expect Father Rothrock to...
    Coronavirus — A team of researchers from the Superior Council of Scientific Investigations (CSIC) is developing a project to develop antiviral drugs that prevent the replication of COVID-19. The studio is focused on DIP calls (Interfering Defective Particles), which are a type of Molecular parasites specific to RNA viruses. They stand out for not having infective capacity on their own, but they replicate and interfere with the infection taking advantage of its machinery. Santiago Elena, virologist of the CSIC who directs the project, affirms that “An inherent property of all replicative systems is the appearance of parasites. The most obvious example is viruses, capable of infect from bacteria to more complex plants and animals“ “However, also Viruses themselves, as replicating organisms, are exposed to other opportunists that take advantage of them and interfere with their reproduction and accumulation, “added the virologist. CSIC researchers will use a type of ‘coronavirus parasites’ to fight it.A project studies specific forms of parasites of the coronavirus to interfere with the replication capacity of SARS-CoV-2 and promote its elimination.➡️https: //t.co/0S0CCgoSYO pic.twitter.com/6CDVB73Mw3 – CSIC (@CSIC)...
