In a new study, researchers collected flies and other flying insects from seven hospitals in the United Kingdom to analyze their potential for carrying harmful bacteria. The conclusion? These insects carry enough bacteria to cause infections — even some drug-resistant ones. Flies and other flying insects can bring very harmful bacteria into hospitals, new research warns. Recently, researchers have shown more interest in how infections can originate and propagate in hospitals in order to find better ways of preventing infections that can be life-threatening.

Processed Foods in Pregnancy May Be Tied to Autism

June 26, 2019 -- Consuming processed foods during pregnancy may be linked to a higher risk of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in children, early research suggests. Researchers from the University of Central Florida (UCF) College of Medicine in Orlando found that high levels of propionic acid (PPA) -- used in processed foods to extend shelf life -- change nervous system development in the fetal brain. The study links maternal PPA exposure to "possible precursors for autism," say the researchers, who were led by Saleh Naser, PhD. "This is an intriguing finding and a first in the field," they add, cautioning...
