In Japanese controlled areas there was an estimated twenty five million deaths from 1937 to 1945. If the United States did not drop the atomic bombs and the Soviet entry did cause the Japanese to surrender by October 1st this would have added a minimum of 600,000 Asian deaths to the already high death toll. (Document 11). The atomic bombings may have taken many lives, but they saved many more from dying from wounds, starvation, and
Prevention can be done through vaccination of avoiding of any contact with an infected individual. Smallpox has been on Earth for hundreds of years and is known to be one of the most deadliest diseases/ epidemics ever experienced by humanity. It kills about thirty percent of all people infected and spreads very quickly as it is highly contagious. Smallpox is known to happen to even some of the most significant icons all throughout history including George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and Mozart. It's been one of the deadliest diseases to ever spread in this world for the past hundred years which has now been eradicated saving millions of lives every year.
He links this decrease directly to the absence of alcohol as a contributing factor to society. Finally, Cooper claims that Prohibition brought about a better economic situation for the nation as a whole. Cooper hypothesizes that since a significantly
Firstly, the idea of deadly diseases that the Europeans brought into the Americas will be discussed. This resulted in a staggering number of deaths. “The death tolls from the newly introduced European diseases often reached 80-90 percent. Entire groups of people vanished before the tidal wave of disease”- Americannetroots.net December 28, 2009 by Ojibwa. If a comparison was made between the native Indians and Europeans, it was true to say that the Indians were slightly healthier.
They didn’t realize how much the A-bomb would affect the people and the whole country of Japan, the 20,000 kilojoule bomb killed 140,000 people within the months that followed. This devastated Japan and eventually led to the end of the war, with America winning.
As more people quit smoking, the amount of preventable smoking deaths can only go down. Many colleges have banned smoking but lack the initiative to take policies further than that. According to researcher Kirsten C. Rodgers, the five-component plan developed by the American Nonsmokers’ Rights Foundation is an effective way to improve campus policies. The plan includes tobacco free environments, reduced sales and advertisements, enforcement, education, and cessation programs (Rodgers, 258). Having a comprehensive plan that covers all these components can have effects that go on to help prevent smoking in current and future generations.
To this date Cholera is still a global problem and causes about 130.000 deaths every year. Another major outbreak was the 1918 Spanish flu, which was extremely contagious. 500 million people all around the world were infected and 50 to 100 million of them were killed, which was about 3-5% of the world’s population. What really accelerated the spread of the disease was the fact that for a long time reports about the outbreak were withheld from the public due to military reasons connected with World War I. Interestingly, the only country where newspapers reported on the flu was Spain, which was neutral. Therefore, the impression was created that this country was the only one affected.
The negative effects were mostly the destruction of the empire; after three months of conflict Cortez had finally defeated the capital city of the Aztec Empire, Tenochtitlan (Tucker). Cuauhtémoc, the emperor, was taken captive and later that year he was executed, and Cortez became the ruler of the vast empire (Tucker). The Aztecs were highly vulnerable to European diseases unknown to their nation, such as smallpox and typhus; in 1521, smallpox annihilated the population of Tenochtitlan, two following epidemics wiped out 75 percent of the remaining population (Tucker). The surviving Aztecs were not allowed to learn of their native culture and were enforced to read and write in Spanish, unfortunately a wide range of the Aztec religion and culture were lost forever (Tucker). Some positive aspects were that the Spanish helped ‘modernize’ the civilization, they introduced them to domestic animals, sugar, grains and even European farming practices (Tucker).
It was devastating, the plague wiped out 20,000,000 people, that was nearly ⅓ of Europe’s population (Black Death Presentation). When doctors came to treat the sick they wore special costumes. They had costumes that looked like a bird, they had beaks filled with vinegar and spices that covered the stench. They also wore outfits that were made out of leather or cloth to protect themselves from the disease (DBQ#2, Doc 6). So all in all disease made the middle ages the dark ages.
In fact, the reason they are healthy is because they are sponging off the herd immunity of their classmates who were vaccinated…” But what about the healthy unvaccinated homeschooled kids? If their siblings aren’t vaccinated how can they sponge off the herd of immunity? According to a recent pilot study done by Anthony Mawson, a professor in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics in the School of Public Health at Jackson State University, it was discovered that reduced odds of chickenpox and whooping cough were found among the vaccinated but increased odds were found for many other physician diagnosed conditions. Both vaccinated and unvaccinated children in the study got sick sometimes and vaccinated children were less likely to have some infections they were vaccinated against, however, children in both groups had about the same rates of infection with measles, mumps, Hepatitis A and B, influenza, rotavirus and meningitis (both viral and bacterial). Unvaccinated children in the study were actually better protected against some “vaccine-preventable diseases” than children who got the
Also, he ensured from his experiments that the inoculation process had less fatal structure of the disease in the human body. The author illustrated that several obstacles were overtaken to prevent the outbreak from spreading, a contamination which infected numerous people in 1721, and there were many controversies about the inoculation process and experimentation to inoculate the disease into a healthy person. The inoculation process was harmless and had satisfied the safety of the patients with the experiment. This inoculation method showed a huge result of survival rate in the New England colonies. The death rate was reduced by a greater number and the survival rate increased vastly because of Boylston’s inoculation for smallpox disease.
Affluenza for Influenza Around November to March, people begin to panic because of the annual flu season. Flu also known as influenza, is a common viral infection that can be deadly. Influenza (also known as the flu) has been around for centuries and it has different variations. The flu has killed millions of people throughout the course of history and there is not a cure for it; but there are preventive measures against it. The development of influenza vaccines helped better health conditions, and encourage healthcare in countries around the world.
Influenza Pandemic 0f 1918-19 The influenza pandemic killed more people than World War I. “According to Taber 's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary, influenza is “an acute, contagious respiratory infection characterized by sudden onset, fever, chills, headache, myalgia(muscle pain), and sometimes prostration”. Due to the lack of doctors knowledge, The influenza pandemic( Spanish Flu) spread fast. Conversely, military historians have paid little attention to a deadly disease which underlines the reciprocal relationship between battlefield and homefront.¨ Lack of doctors not knowing about influenza. People not knowing how to deal with it.
The Battle of Lexington and Concord was a bad battle and the first battle of the Revolutionary War, This is also the reason it is called the shot heard around the world. It was called this because the first shot that was fired started the war and it also was a symbolic moment for both sides. The battle started and was a very bloody fight in which many men died. This showed both sides that they were up against an almost equal force and it would be extremely hard to beat the enemy in this war. In the end of this battle 8 miniet men lay dead on the ground and about 50 British soldiers died at the same time.
In a perfect world, the simple answer or recommendation on improving homelessness chemical dependency would be to end poverty finally once and for all yet that is easier said than done. With the development of new diseases, these individuals are being exposed and spreading diseases to other individuals. Substance abuse cannot improve without more emphasizes being placed on creating stability for this population. Just like any mental disorder, addiction should be treated with the same urgency. Treating someone for a day does not improve their situation tomorrow because they will still be homeless.
