A third case of chronic wasting disease (CWD) in 2019 has been confirmed at a Canadian deer farm, and advocates fear servings of infected meat may have once again entered the country's food supply.
All the cases of CWD, a fatal nervous system disease related to mad cow disease that infects deer, elk, moose and caribou, have been located in Alberta. The latest case was confirmed on July 26 at a white-tailed deer farm, according to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. Last year, thousands of deer from an infected farm in Quebec were released for human consumption. Even a single transfer to a person — proving that humans are susceptible — would bring catastrophic consequences. — Letter on behalf of CWD researchers CBC News asked the CFIA for details about the latest infected case and whether meat from that herd has been allowed to enter the country's food supply.

The structure was excavated beneath a more recent farmstead at Skaill as part of a years-long archeological project looking into the history of a farm complex there.

Lunar crash may have seeded indestructible ‘water bears’ on the moon. A tiny species of nearly indestructible creatures may have just taken over the moon before humans — although we have no one but ourselves to blame.
Thousands of microscopic tardigrades likely survived a lunar lander crash into the moon last April, according to the founder of an Earth archive project. The Israeli-run lunar lander, dubbed Beresheet, was supposed to be the first privately funded spacecraft to touch down on the moon. Its payload included a DVD-sized library created by the Arch Mission Foundation, which contained vast troves of information and thousands of dehydrated tardigrades. The spacecraft slammed into the lunar surface on April 11 after operators lost control of it during the final landing sequence. Story continues below advertisement. Cancer doctors are calling for a permanent fix to drug shortages in Canada.
Cancer specialists are concerned national shortages of three vital cancer drugs could lead to a time when they could run out of treatment options for patients in Canada.
The three drugs are all injected into patients' veins. The federal government's drug shortage reporting website lists all three as experiencing national shortages, meaning the scarcity problem could affect patients throughout the country. At hospitals in Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, oncologists, pharmacists and nurses have all scrambled to find alternatives, make substitutions and share precious vials.
