Health Alert: Illnesses Tied to Ticks and Mosquitoes Soaring in US. Diseases transmitted by ticks and mosquitoes in the United States (US) have more than tripled over the past decade from about 27,000 cases in 2004 to over 96,000 cases in 2016. Dr. Robert Redfield, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) adds, “Zika, West Nile, Lyme, and chikungunya—a growing list of diseases caused by the bite of an infected mosquito, tick or flea— have confronted the US in recent years, making a lot of people sick. And we don’t know what will threaten Americans next.” The report reveals the need for an increased effort to both combat the spread of these pests and better educate the public how to prevent bites.

Exercise: Can Exercise Make Your Heart Younger? In this study, researchers found that mice that ran the equivalent of 3.1 miles (5 km) per day generated about 4.5 times more new heart muscle cells than mice that abstained from exercise. The investigators report that these findings demonstrate how exercise can increases the heart’s capacity to regenerate. Researcher Dr. Anthony Rosenzweig notes, “Maintaining a healthy heart requires balancing the loss of heart muscle cells due to injury or aging with the regeneration or birth of new heart muscle cells. Our study suggests exercise can help tip the balance in favor of regeneration.” Nature Communications, April 2018
