752: Impossible to Resist

I've been following the Zika virus thing pretty closely. This is partially because I'm visiting my parents in Puerto Rico in March and there have been 19 confirmed cases there to date. I actually called up my son's infectious disease specialist to make sure it was OK for us to go, especially me, since we're hoping to start working on baby number two this summer and it wasn't clear to me how long the disease lived in your system. According to the doctor, just a week, according to the CDC, just a week, however according to the newspapers, we still don’t know. I find it really sad that when the facts are out there that the media chooses to disseminate misinformation to increase their bottom lines. It’s shameful.
