Killer Outbreaks on Discovery Life
Killer Outbreaks delves into the drama of our planet's most deadly diseases. In a world where global travel is the norm, the Earth's most devastating diseases are never more than a plane ride away. Killer pathogens constantly are evolving, increasing in strength and numbers. Every day, deadly diseases like West Nile, Monkey Pox and MRSA mutate at a rate that far outpaces modern medicine. Everyone is vulnerable, but medical science is not without heroes. From small town doctors at community hospitals to top scientists at the Centers for Disease Control, the battle is being waged on all fronts. In a mortal battle against a ticking clock, doctors and specialists must work together to uncover the source of mysterious illnesses. Only then can they hope to combat these deadly pathogens, save lives and stop the devastation from becoming endemic. In this season, six episodes will cover Athrax, E.coli, Hantavirus, Rabies, West Nile, Monkey Pox, Acinetobacter Baumannii, Salmonella, Valley Fever, Meningococcal Disease, SARS, and MRSA.
The patient is dying. The doctors are baffled. Nothing is what it seems. Clues and symptoms lead nowhere. The clock is ticking. Unless they find answers, people will die. These are real life stories, the most baffling medical mysteries straight from the Emergency Room. Weaving together interviews and re-enactments, Mystery E.R. follows doctors and investigators as they attempt to unravel the most unusual cases of their lives.

"Strange" doesn't seem to adequately describe some of the addictive behaviors profiled on this series. "Dangerous," even "life-threatening," come much closer. Each half-hour episode features two adults who resort to extreme compulsions in an effort to soothe their emotional demon.
