Warning: diseases spread - animals to humans!!!
« on: January 04, 2010, 02:02:42 PM »
            Climate change and environmental disruption are spawning a host of new diseases being passed from animals to humans, scientists have warned.
The “Telegraph” has reported that, at least 45 such diseases have been reported to UN agencies over the past two decades and more are expected to be identified in coming years.
    Experts at the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in Washington claim that the world is braced for an increase in outbreaks due to global warming and changes in land use and farming practices.
             “The recent emergence of infectious diseases appears to be driven by globalisation and ecological disruption.”
             The researchers said that the number of people who succumbed to infectious diseases dropped in the developed world during the industrial revolution. However, the rise of manufacturing and pollution levels increased the incidence of chronic diseases including cancer, allergies and birth defects. They believe we are now experiencing another transition driven by the destruction of plant and animal habitats, the loss of species and changes that have brought more humans into closer contact with animals than at any stage in human history.
               HIV is the best known example of a disease passed from animals to humans which went on to cause the global Aids pandemic. The virus is thought to have crossed from chimpanzees to humans in West Africa in the last century and more than 25 million people worldwide have since died from it.
The swine flu pandemic that emerged in Mexico last March also resulted from the mixing of viruses that infected pigs, birds and humans to create a new pandemic strain.
               Urbanisation has been a key factor, which has resulted in humans moving into previously undeveloped areas where they have come into closer contact with animals.
Globalisation has compounded the problem because newly emerging diseases are transmitted faster and more widely than in the past.

Wow,wannan ai sai mutum ya tafi barzahu. -21  :o
Nigeria dai an daina sanyi even during harmattan maybe due to global warming ko kuma overpopulation. In kano, a few years back november - february used to be very cold but it seems the whole climate has changed now.
Its frightening. It means more mosquitoes cos they survive more in hot weather.
Amma dai ni bana son mahdi ya zo kwanan nan. Ya bari sai chan chan chan gaba.
