That’s News to you answers

 

Here are the answers to this week’s newspaper edition of That’s News to You.

1. E. ALS is often called Lou Gehrig’s disease in honor of one of the most famous people to suffer from it. Gehrig had signed the bat that was auctioned.

2. C. Harper had red-bellied piranhas, which he was offering to trade on Craigslist. He had traded one for a baby alligator. But owning piranhas and alligators is illegal in Washington, so wildlife agents seized the fish and the gator. The piranhas were euthanized, and the alligator is in custody.

3. D. A study of more than 1,200 stroke patients found that smoking tobacco and eating egg yolks had a similar effect on narrowing carotid arteries. The CDC recommended limiting consumption of eggs and products made with them.

5. D. The Rays were on the losing end of Hernandez’s perfect game.
