3 Reasons You Might Sweat So Much -- And What To Do About It
1. Your Mom, Uncle or Third Cousin Sweat a Lot TooThere’s a type of excessive sweating that runs in families called primary hyperhidrosis (PH). Experts don’t know what causes it, but it’s definitely not because you have more sweat glands or that they’re supersized. The size, number and location of these glands appear totally normal in people with PH, says Dee Anna Glaser, MD, professor of dermatology at Saint Louis University School of Medicine and president of the International Hyperhidrosis Society.

Malaria-Like Parasite From Ticks Spreading To U.K. Through Dogs
Mepron, a thick liquid antimicrobial drug used to treat Babesia and malaria, as well as a fungal infection called Pneumocystitis carinii. In 2011, the United Kingdom stopped requiring that dogs brought into the country be inspected for ticks. Earlier this year, several dogs tested positive for babesia, a malaria-like disease transmitted to ticks that previously had only been found in foreign. These dogs had never left the U.K. While babesiosis is a new worry to U.K. dog owners, it's been a threat to human beings for years -- it just hasn't become a health-scare-of-the-week like Zika, West Nile, avian and swine flu.

How To Feel On Top Of The World
Exhilaration, elation, happiness, pride, and attitude -- these are words that would describe the feeling of being on top of the world. To me that feeling means that you have conquered an obstacle or achieved a goal. It may mean that you have helped others do the same. When you feel on top of the world, you are able to accomplish more than you anticipated, but staying in that feeling is difficult because outside stimuli can knock you down. We all experience obstacles in our life -- grief, hardship, or loss. I'm sure, however, that you've read stories about people who have been homeless, poor, abused, but are now productiv...

Hepatitis A Outbreak Linked To Popular Hawaii Sushi Chain
Hawaii is experiencing one of the largest hepatitis A outbreaks the United States has seen in the last decade, with 206 confirmed cases, including 51 that required hospitalization, since the outbreak started in June.  State officials used an online population survey to find the source of the outbreak, announcing last week that frozen scallops served raw at Genki Sushi, a popular conveyor belt sushi chain, were likely the source.

10 Tips for Surviving a Whole30
