News you can use – Wednesday July 18

I read the news so you don’t have to.

Oropharyngeal Tularemia from Freshly Pressed Grape Must, New England Journal of Medicine. Fascinating, that tularemia was acquired by freshly pressed grape must by grape harvesters volunteering at a vineyard in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany.

Improving management of neonatal infections, The Lancet. Infections causing sepsis, meningitis, or pneumonia contributed directly to around 0·6 million neonatal deaths worldwide

Is Fruit Juice Bad for You: Not so Fast. An interesting letter in the New York Times.

Boston’s battle against youth homelessness gets a big boost. Important article in the Boston Globe. On any given night, about 360 unaccompanied youths and young adults are believed to be homeless in Boston. The city won $4.9 million in federal funding to combat the problem. 

‘Molly-Beas-Del!’ A friendship built on serendipity and a road slowly traveled, Boston Globe. Great article! I love the Boston Globe.

Have a wonderful day, and please let me know if this blog post was useful.

I’m planning to be offline for a few days, but look forward to reconnecting.

Regards, Philip Albert Lederer MD
