Hepatitis C virus is one of many causes of swelling of the liver (hepatitis). The liver plays a crucial role in cleaning the blood and metabolizing different substances we ingest. When the liver isn’t working correctly, “poisons” build up in the blood. In addition, the liver makes bile, and if it isn’t released correctly, it builds up in the body causing a yellowing of the skin and eyes (called jaundice and icterus, respectively). People first infected with HCV commonly get mild flu-like symptoms with aches, fever, and chills. Following this flu-like illness, however, symptoms generally resolve for more than 2 decades! Though a number of people infected with Hepatitis C go on to remission, a much larger portion of infected individuals will have worsening liver disease and will get sicker years later. Those who are chronically infected are at a high risk of developing total liver failure (cirrhosis) and liver cancer (hepatocellular carcinoma), both of which can lead to death.
The village of Canneto di Caronia on Sicily’s north coast has been plagued by mysterious fires. The trouble began on January 20, 2004, when a TV caught fire. Then things in neighbourhood houses began to burn, including washing machines, mobile phones, mattresses, chairs and even the insulation on water pipes. The electricity company cut off all power, as did the railway company, but the fires continued. Experts of all kinds carried out tests, but no explanation was found. The village was evacuated in February, but when people returned in March the fires resumed. Police ruled out a pyromaniac after they saw wires bursting into flames.
