Dr. Susan Sharma: This is InsideMedicine60 from Washington. According to the US Department of Agriculture, 32 people in 12 states have fallen ill from Salmonella poisoning due to improperly cooked frozen chicken dinners. Health officials noted that the frozen dishes contain breaded or prebrowned chicken, which appear to be fully cooked. However those that fell ill to Salmonella had microwaved their products despite the fact that there were no microwave instructions on the packaging. From Chicago according to research in the Archives in the General Psychiatry, chance that victimization may be caused by several factors. In a study of 1970 children between the ages of four and half months and seven years, researchers found that children who were aggressive in early childhood and came from families of harsh parenting styles and insufficient income are more or likely to become victims in preschool. The researchers suggest that prevented interventions should target child and parent level risks and focus on alternatives to aggressive interactions. Finally from Orlando, according to research presented at the American College of Gastroenterology, high levels of air pollution may increase the risk of appendicitis. In a study of over 5,000 adults hospitalized for appendicitis, researchers from the University of Calgary found that higher concentrations of air pollutants will link to the occurrence of appendicitis. The infects were found to be strongest in the summer months when people are more likely to be outside. For InsideMedicine60, I am Dr. Susan Sharma.
