Top U.S. public health officials said Tuesday that Americans should prepare for the spread of the coronavirus in communities across the country. “It’s not so much a question of if this will happen any more, but rather more a question of exactly when this will happen and how many people in this country will have severe illness,” Dr. Nancy Messonnier, the head of Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, said during a media briefing Tuesday.

An Arizona man has died after ingesting chloroquine phosphate — believing it would protect him from becoming infected with the coronavirus. The man’s wife also ingested the substance and is under critical care. The toxic ingredient they consumed was not the medication form of chloroquine, used to treat malaria in humans. Instead, it was an ingredient listed on a parasite treatment for fish. The man’s wife told NBC News she’d watched televised briefings during which President Trump talked about the potential benefits of chloroquine. Even though no drugs are approved to prevent or treat COVID-19, the disease caused by the […]

I’m a doctor in a major hospital in Western Europe. Watching you Americans (and you, Brits) in these still-early days of the coronavirus pandemic is like watching a familiar horror movie, where the protagonists, yet again, split into pairs or decide to take a tour of a dark basement. The real-life versions of this behavior are pretending this is just a flu; keeping schools open; following through with your holiday travel plans, and going into the office daily. This is what we did in Italy. We were so complacent that even when people with coronavirus symptoms started turning up, we […]

While everything from juice cleansers and soup diets have been linked to weight loss in the past, a new study claims eating dirt could be the latest way of flushing fat from the body. Yes, really. According to research published in the Pharmaceutical Research Journal by researchers from the University of South Australia, eating a side of a certain type of dirt with an evening meal could actually flush fat from the system. Researchers say obesity costs the global economy $2.78 trillion (US$2 trillion, UK£1.58 trillion) each year, but a PhD candidate has discovered that clay materials have the potential […]
