Iowa Farm Buildings Not Exempt From electrical Inspections

The Iowa Electrical Examining Board won't exempt farm buildings from mandatory electrical inspections.

The board voted 8-3 on Thursday to reject a proposal that would have generally exempted farm buildings.

The proposal was aimed at resolving issues stemming from a court ruling that the board exceeded its authority by requiring inspections on most electrical installations on farms.

Some critics say the inspections are a power grab by the board and that the inspections overburden farmers. Other farmers and their supporters say poorly installed electrical wiring creates safety hazards.

On Thursday the board set a task force to seek a compromise to present to the Legislature.


Tapeworm Diet a Bad Idea

The medical director for the Iowa Department of Public Health is warning against the tapeworm diet.

In her weekly email to public health workers around Iowa, Dr. Patrica Quinlisk recounted a recent incident:

A physician sought the department's help for a patient who said she'd swallowed a tapeworm she'd bought over the Internet.

The woman was hoping the parasite would help her lose weight.

Quinlisk says hucksters sold tapeworm eggs in pill form as a weight-loss aid a century ago. She says ingesting them "is extremely risky and can cause a wide range of undesirable side effects, including rare deaths."

Tapeworms can live for years in the intestines and grow to several feet long. They can be accidentally ingested in undercooked meat.

An anti-worm medication was advised for the woman.
