MSNBC: Infectious Diseases Division

Hmmm, MSNBC has a whole section devoted to infectious disease. The mumps outbreak in the midwest is currently beating out bird flu and that woman in L.A. who got the bubonic plauge as the top story. Hypochondriacs need not apply.

In other news health-related news, the death rate actually declined by nearly 50,000 deaths from 2003 to 2004 (yet this Reuter's UK headline zeroes in on the fact that Alzheimer's ranking on the list of causes of death went up. Way to disguise great news as bad news, guys).
