Ebola outbreak in Guinea

UK hospitals are on “high alert” over fears that the deadly Ebola virus could arrive on British shores.

The Ebola virus that causes hemorrhagic fever is highly contagious. 5 new infections have been diagnosed in Guinea in the past 24 hours, bringing the total number of new infections to 127, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).

WHO confirms Ebola has killed 80 people in Guinea. Ebola is classified as the “world’s deadliest virus”, with a mortality rate of 90 percent.

There is no cure or treatment for Ebola.

Medical Minute: Anorexia Nervosa

New photos posted on social media by Whitney Houston‘s daughter, Bobbi Kristina, suggests she may be suffering from Anorexia Nervosa, an eating disorder characterized by a starvation diet and low self-esteem.

Bobbi Kristina’s attention-seeking behavior is indicative of youngsters who didn’t develop strong bonds with their parents or primary caregivers. Bobbi’s mom, Whitney, and her dad, singer Bobby Brown, had busy careers that kept them on the road for long periods of time.

People who suffer from Anorexia have an irrational fear that they are gaining too much weight. They obsess about staying thin due to an altered body image disturbance or the perception that they are too fat.

Anorexia Nervosa usually begins in adolescence and affects more girls than boys.

Did Attorney Gen. Eric Holder Suffer a Panic Attack?

Attorney General of the United States Eric Holder

Yesterday, news broke that Attorney General of the U.S. Eric Holder suffered chest pains, palpitations (rapid heartbeat) and shortness of breath during a Justice Dept. meeting. My initial thought was that Holder suffered a panic attack. Especially after it was revealed that doctors gave him medication to “return his heartbeat to normal” then discharged him. If his condition was all that serious he would have been hospitalized, if only to monitor him overnight.

Of course, at 63, he could also be diagnosed with any number of heart ailments such as Ischemic Cardiomyopathy, Coronary Artery Disease, Angina, Congestive Heart failure, mild heart attack, etc. But based on his symptoms — and the fact that hundreds of black pastors are calling for his impeachment — I think he suffered a panic attack.

Apparently, The Hufffington Post does, too.
