FILE - In this Oct. 13, 2014, file photo, Senate candidate, Rep. Bill Cassidy, R-La., speaks at a campaign stop at VFW Post 5951in Bossier City, La. An old political stand-by _ the future of Medicare _ is emerging as the go-to attack in Louisiana’s bitter Senate race as the candidates woo seniors who typically wield strong influence in midterm elections. “The $700 billion that Obamacare cut from Medicare spends it on other programs,” Cassidy said, referring to the law shifting some health care spending to premium subsidies for working-age policy holders. “The $700 billion in the Ryan budget puts it back into the trust fund.”  (AP Photo/Gerald Herbert, File)

In this photo taken Oct. 9, 2104, body products on display at a Whole Foods in Washington. There’s a strict set of standards for organic foods.

FILE - This 2011 photo provided by Wilmot Chayee shows Thomas Eric Duncan at a wedding in Ghana.

Even there, not everyone dies. (AP Photo/Wilmot Chayee)
