Hospital and State health officials say eight babies in the hospital's neonatal intensive care unit have tested positive for a certain staph infection, which can NOT be treated with antibiotics. Officials say they're not sure how the infants got the infection, but they have been isolated from the ward and are being treated with alternative drugs. Officials say staph infections are NOT uncommon in hospitals and just because the bacterium is found on babies, doesn't mean they're sick.

In health review,
The FDA approves a new drug for cancer.
And, if you're overweight or don't exercise you are putting yourself at greater risk.

Even though Mc Donald's plans to phase out its supersize menu -- the portion sizes now offered are still much larger than those available when the restaurant first opened.
That's according to a study in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association
In 1955, there was only one size was fry it 2-point-6 ounces, that considered a small fry these days, the supersize value is nearly triple that amount.
Even a soda was only 7 ounces back then --now that's smaller than a child's size which is 12 ounces.

The raid comes a day after Palestinians attacked an Israel-Gaza crossing. A Palestinian Cabinet minister has condemned the raid saying - at a time when Israel is speaking about withdrawing from Gaza, it's instead ``destroying Gaza.'' The minister is calling for a return to negotiations under the U-S backed ``road map'' peace plan.
