Why It's OK To Worry About Ebola, And What's Truly Scary

kcur.org — Public-health types are getting increasingly annoyed with people freaking out about Ebola in the United States, from governors to the general public.

Scientists Implicate More Than 100 Genes In Causing Autism

wvpublic.org — The hunt to find genes that cause autism has been a long slog, one hampered by a lack of technology and families willing to be tested. But those efforts are starting to pay off. On Tuesday, researchers at more than 50 laboratories said they had identified more than 100 genes that are mutated in children with autism, dozens more than were known before.
