At least five people have died at a nursing home in Hollywood, Florida, Broward County Mayor Barbara Sharief confirmed Wednesday morning.
The deaths may be due to the loss of the home's air-conditioning after Hurricane Irma struck Sunday, Hollywood Police Chief Tomas Sanchez said at a press conference Wednesday. The causes of death are still being investigated.
"We are conducting a criminal investigation (and) not ruling anything out at this time," Sanchez said.
Three died at the nursing home, and two others died after being transported to Memorial Regional Hospital, Sharief said.

Sue Hughes reports from Barcelona, Spain for Medscape on August 29, 2017:

A new study of dietary habits in 135,000 people around the world is set to shake up the nutrition field, with results showing high fat intake-including saturated fat-was associated with a reduced risk of mortality. The PURE study, which followed participants from 18 countries for 7 years, also found that high carbohydrate intake was associated with an increased risk of mortality...
Senior author of the PURE study, Dr Salim Yusuf (McMaster University, Hamilton, ON), commented to Cardiology:
My advice to the general population to lead a healthy lifestyle is don't smoke and take exercise...And then I would say maintain a reasonable weight...Eat a balanced diet-a bit of meat, fish, several portions of fruit and vegetables, but you don't have to be vegan or eat an excessive amount of plants to be healthy...This is good old-fashioned advice. When I showed these results to my mother, she said, 'Why did you bother doing this study? This is what our grandmothers and their grandmothers have been advocating for centuries.' And actually she is right.
