  • Cheerleaders may have been exposed to Mumps at national competition in Dallas

After Texas health officials warned cheerleaders and coaches may have been exposed to the mumps at the National Cheerleaders Association All-Star National Championship in Dallas last month - where the Cambridge Cheer Sport Great Whites Sharks competed - team coach and club co-owner Ali Moffatt said her team is healthy.

The person with mumps was from another state, and officials have not identified any connected cases in Texas, said Chris Van Deusen, spokesman for the Texas Department of State Health Services.

When people hear the word "mumps", they may picture someone with puffy cheeks and swollen glands - after all, those are the most common side effects of the virus. "Because the virus is spread via our saliva, it's important not to share utensils or cups with anyone suspected of having the mumps".

A total of 130 mumps infections were reported in 25 states between January 1-27, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

It may take from 14 to 25 days to develop symptoms after becoming infected with the virus.

Mumps is an infectious infection that makes the salivary organs in the face end up swollen, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Cigarettes Present The Same Carcinogenic Chemicals As The Regular Cigarettes
Kids who used e-cigarettes showed levels of toxic organic compounds three times higher on average than the kids who didn't smoke. E-cigarettes contain additives and solvents, which can form carcinogenic compounds when heated, according to the study .

Since mumps is a virus, people can treat the symptoms as they would the flu, and it usually runs its course in two weeks.

Most children receive a measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine (MMR) shot at 12 to 15 months and another dose a few years later - sometime between age 4 and 6, according to the Texas DSHS. Anyone who is unsure of their children's vaccination status is encouraged by the TDSHS to contact their doctor.

Moffatt said she received a one-page information email from Health Canada about the mumps.
