To combat a terrible measles epidemic, Italy is no longer putting up with unvaccinated kids.

via Sanofi Pasteur / Flickr Between 2017 and 2018 the number of global measles cases increased by 48.1% according to calculations by UNICEF. Recent outbreaks have been caused by poor health infrastructure, low awareness, complacency and, in the developed world, a backlash against vaccinations. Even though report after report shows there is no link between vaccinations and autism, a small percentage of people in the developed world refuse to vaccinate their children resulting in outbreaks of diseases that were nearly eradicated. In the U.S., children must have the following vaccinations to attend public school: diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis; polio, measles, and rubella. However, in 47 states, parents can get an exception for personal reasons. The only states that prohibit such exemptions …

Nearly Half Of British Women Don’t Know Where The Vagina Is. And It Gets Much Worse.

New research has found that half of people in the UK don’t know where the vagina is. Perhaps worse, this includes the worrying information that only 45 percent of people who have their very own vagina are able to locate the vagina. Research from YouGov provides some quite alarming statistics about how well Brits know their own bodies. A team of researchers asked respondents to label female genitalia. Overall, 52 percent of people couldn’t locate the vagina. Of course, women were slightly better at locating it than men, with 45 percent of women unable to find it compared to 59 percent of men. Contrary to “men can’t find the clitoris” jokes, this was actually the part of women’s genitals that men were most able to …

What A Personal Trainer Eats In A Day Betches

Whenever I tell someone I’m in the fitness industry, I always get a lot of questions about what a personal trainer eats. Because of my background, I think people assume I’m always very uptight about food, which I am, to an extent. I think that it’s very important for everyone to put quality nutrition into their bodies. Like, if you drove a Lambo would you fill it up with anything less than premium gas? No. However, I am SO FAR from being super restrictive about food, and I take the same approach to my clients. Because I used to have such a shaky history with food in my middle and high school years, I am very aware of the effect …

Manafort sentencing highlights Russia probe looming over Trump

Washington (CNN)Paul Manafort’s final date with his legal destiny on Wednesday — barring a presidential pardon — is sure to show why impeachment talk will not be quelled by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s fresh attempts to tamp it down. That’s because the President will likely find it almost impossible not to weigh in on what happens in the courtroom. His comments and criticism will revive the question of whether he is planning a pardon for Manafort and potentially other indicted associates, the prospect of which plays into allegations of obstruction of justice and abuse of power. Pelosi tried to temper surging talk that her party could try to oust Trump — stimulated by its liberal grass roots and Republicans seeking …

The crowd, 1,600 strong, according to Sanders’ campaign, welcomed him with chants of “Ber-nie” and roars of support that initially made it hard for him to complete his sentences. “Thank you for being part of a campaign which is not only going to win the …

UN: 25 Percent Of Premature Deaths Are Caused By Environmental Degradation

Environmental degradation is responsible for one in four premature deaths, the United Nations’ (UN) latest Global Environment Outlook (GEO) report reveals. That equates to approximately 9 million deaths in 2015 alone.  The report, unveiled at the UN Environment Assembly in Nairobi on Wednesday, has been six years in the making and has involved the work of 250 scientists from 70 countries to gauge how environmental factors affect more than 100 diseases. It found that 1.4 million people die annually simply due to lack of access to clean water.
