A thousand acres stretched before him as Gary Rieke walked briskly behind a harvester, the parched, stalks of rice sweeping against his knees. Stopping to adjust a bolt on the machine, Rieke struggled to maneuver a wrench with his tremblin fingers.

It was 1988, and Rieke was in his mid-40s, too young and too fit to feel his body betraying him. For two decades, he had farmed in the San Joaquin Valley, and he knew what he wanted his hand to do. But for some frustrating reason, it refused to obey. Unbeknownst to Rieke, by the time he noticed the slightest tremor, about 400,000 of his brain cells had been wiped out. Like an estimated 1 million other Americans, most over 55, he had Parkinson's disease, and his thoughts could no longer control his movements. In time, he would struggle to walk and talk.

CHICAGO -- It's a far piece from the horse-and-buggies of Lancaster County, Pa., to the cars and freeways of Cook County, Ill.

But thousands of children cared for by Homefirst Health Services in metropolitan Chicago have at least two things in common with thousands of Amish children in rural Lancaster: They have never been vaccinated. And they don't have autism. Homefirst doctors have delivered more than 15,000 babies at home, and thousands of them have never been vaccinated.

LAHORE: It could be time to discard the adage that an apple a day keeps the doctor away.

According to Guardian, a British newspaper, with Apple Computer's iPod digital music player continuing to sell well, and the tiny iPod nano set to be one of the must-have gifts this Christmas, physicians are now warning that the first cases of a condition they are labelling "iPod finger" have started to emerge. "Handheld music machines are extremely popular and users are constantly using small, difficult buttons with the same finger in a repetitive motion," said Carl Irwin from the British Chiropractic Association.

LYON, France -- French physicians on Friday defended their decision to perform the world's first partial face transplant on a 38-year-old woman, saying horrific wounds from a dog bite in May probably could not have been repaired...

News of the operation brought criticism from some medical ethicists, who questioned whether a high-risk transplant should be performed for cosmetic reasons on patients who do not have life-threatening injuries. There also are potential psychological ramifications for patients in swapping one of the most personal and individual features of a body, which for many people is a reflection of persona.

The death of a Canadian teenager who suffered a fatal allergic reaction to peanuts after kissing her boyfriend is putting a renewed focus on a condition suffered by thousands of Americans.

Fifteen-year-old Christina Desforges of Saguenay, Quebec, died last week after kissing her boyfriend, who had eaten a peanut butter sandwich hours earlier. He passed along traces of peanuts to Desforges, who was severely allergic, and she immediately became short of breath. She was given a shot of adrenaline to counteract the symptoms, but that did not help. She died of respiratory failure in a Quebec City hospital.

Researchers led by Seth D. Pollak of the University of Wisconsin have found that these children, even three and a half years after adoption into Wisconsin families, produce two critical hormones in a different pattern from children with traditional upbringings.
