    By  Mandip Kaur and Brendan Jackson Oh, how sweet it is to enjoy a caramel apple when autumn sweeps in! Maybe you like yours topped with nuts? Sprinkles? How about chocolate? But who knew that this past fall, certain caramel apples would be contaminated with the dangerous Listeria monocytogenes bacteria (here, Listeria for short), and cause illnesses across the nation? This was quite a curveball for public health investigators: listeriosis (the disease caused by Listeria) outbreaks are often traced to soft cheeses and sometimes to produce, but no one had ever reported an outbreak linked to…

But the human race is resilient. It’s come through worse before. Granted, not much worse, but there are always […] The post The Survival Group – Will You Survive the Zombie Apocalypse? appeared first on zweapons.

    Transmission electron micrograph (TEM) image of some of the ultrastructural morphology displayed by norovirus virions, or virus particles. Have you ever experienced severe diarrhea or vomiting? If you have, it’s likely you had norovirus. If you haven’t, chances are you will sometime in your life. Norovirus is a very contagious virus that anyone can get from contaminated food or surfaces, or from an infected person. It is the most common cause of diarrhea and vomiting (also known as gastroenteritis) and is often referred to as food poisoning or stomach flu. In the United States, a person…

    When gathering food for an emergency kit, we often think about items that do not require cooking or refrigeration and have a long storage life.

Here are a few healthy tips to keep in mind when gathering food for your emergency kit and reviewing the food you have already stored. 1. Avoid salty snacks. Salty snacks make you thirsty and increase your need to drink water.

    It’s a terrifying but plausible scenario. You’re in an enclosed crowded place—perhaps a subway or a mall—and a terrorist organization releases lethal quantities of a nerve agent such as sarin into the air. The gas sends your nervous system into overdrive. You begin having convulsions. EMTs rush to the scene while you go into respiratory failure. If they have nerve agent antidotes with them, you may have a greater chance of living. If they don’t, you may be more likely to die. Will you survive? Thanks to CDC’s Strategic National Stockpile CHEMPACK program, the answer is more likely…
