Lyme Disease Cases Double in U.S.: CDC
According to statistics released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the number of cases of Lyme disease has doubled in the U.S. since 1991. (that's 16 years) More than 21,000 cases are now reported every year, making it the most common illness transmitted by insects or animals in the country. The CDC says these figures are most likely an underestimation as not all cases are reported.

There is evidence that fish oil supplements rich in omega-3 fatty acids can help treat bipolar and attention deficit disorders in children. A small study found a 30% reduction in manic symptoms with no side effects among children diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
