Liver Disease Outbreaks in Kids Spread From UK to US and EU

Liver Disease Outbreaks in Kids , Spread From U.K. to U.S. and EU.

Hepatitis has been detected in 74 children by health practitioners in Britain.

The cases were documented during the second week of April.

Now, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control states that more cases of the same hepatitis have been detected in kids in at least four EU countries.

The countries include Ireland, Denmark, Spain and the Netherlands.

Nine cases have been detected in the U.S., all in AL and all in children between the ages of one and six.

While health officials say that mild hepatitis is commonly found in kids.

This particular form of hepatitis was not caused by any of the viruses that usually lead to an infection.

Mild hepatitis is very common in children following a range of viral infections, but what is being seen at the moment is quite different, Graham Cooke, Imperial College London, via AP.

Health officials suspect that an adenovirus is causing the hepatitis infections in these children.

Hepatitis is described basically as an infection of the liver.

Symptoms of the infection are abdominal pain, diarrhea and jaundice.

Hepatitis can lead to death if it is not properly addressed.

Some of the children with the infection in the U.K. have required extensive care at health units that cater specifically to liver ailments.

A few have even required liver transplants.

According to the U.N.

Health agency, more cases of hepatitis in children will likely be detected

'Doomsday' Glacier Melting at Fastest Rate in 5,500 Years [Video]

'Doomsday' Glacier Melting at Fastest Rate in 5,500 Years

'Doomsday' Glacier , Melting at Fastest Rate , in 5,500 Years. According to a new study, the Thwaites Glacier in West Antarctica is losing ice at an alarming rate. . 'USA Today' reports that the study of the "doomsday" glacier raises concerns regarding the impending rise of global sea levels. 'USA Today' reports that the study of the "doomsday" glacier raises concerns regarding the impending rise of global sea levels. The rapid melting of the glacier was highlighted in a peer-reviewed study published in the journal 'Nature Geoscience.'. According to the results of the study, the glacier began losing ice around 5,000 years ago. Over that time, local sea level rose at a rate of 0.14 inches per year. In the past 30 years, local sea level has risen 1.57 inches annually. These currently elevated rates of ice melting may signal that those vital arteries from the heart of the (West Antarctic Ice Sheet) have been ruptured, leading to accelerating flow into the ocean that is potentially disastrous for future global sea level in a warming world, Dylan Rood, co-author and faculty of engineering at Imperial College London, via 'USA Today'. These currently elevated rates of ice melting may signal that those vital arteries from the heart of the (West Antarctic Ice Sheet) have been ruptured, leading to accelerating flow into the ocean that is potentially disastrous for future global sea level in a warming world, Dylan Rood, co-author and faculty of engineering at Imperial College London, via 'USA Today'. According to the International Thwaites Glacier Collaboration, the Thwaites glacier already accounts for about 4% of global sea level rise. In December, the American Geophysical Union warned that the eventual demise of the glacier has the potential to raise sea levels by up to a foot over the next century. That dramatic change in sea level threatens to impact coastal cities around the world
