Hysteria? There’s a cure for that

Hysteria is what doctors used to diagnose in women who were, um, deprived?

It lead to the invention of the vibrator.

Maggie Gyllenhaal has a movie about it.

Ten days ago, workers at an Al Ruwais labor camp in UAE were admitted to hospital complaining of food poisoning.

At the time, food safety authorities said the laborers were suffering from mass hysteria.

The National now reports that 18 food outlets in the Western Region of Abu Dhabi were charged for food-safety offences after surprise inspections at catering companies and labor camps.

The Abu Dhabi Food Control Authority issued warnings to seven establishments and destroyed more than 700 kilograms of food. Only nine of 35 outlets were found to be complying with the authority’s regulations.
