As a result, thousands are starving and becoming malnourished. It will continue if nothing is done. This famine has harmed human beings and has put them under stress. Thus, they have little food and are experiencing many hardships. The food security in Somalia has dropped substantially due to a famine that has caused thousands to die from starvation, if there is no aid given to these malnourished people, the country will break down in security causing people to be defenseless and at risk.
This is an important question because it lets everyone see both sides of the story, and educate many people on what would happen with and without taking the vaccine. I think that majority of children should be vaccinated unless there has been a previous family member who suffered largely from getting a vaccine. Polio mainly affects children under 5 years of age. One in 200 infections leads to irreversible paralysis. Among those paralyzed, 5% to 10% die when their breathing muscles become immobilized.
But the Center for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that each year about 76 million people in the United States become ill from pathogens in food, and about 5,000 of them die. Over 55% of such cases are caused by improper cooking and storage of foods, and 24% by poor hygiene, such as not washing your hands while preparing food. Only 3% of cases are from unsafe food sources. Keeping your hands clean while working with food is the single
(WHO,2016). In addition, malaria is transmitted by female mosquitoes, when mosquitoes bite the human that happens, and they lay their eggs in the water because there is no choice, people just drink and wash from unclean water. Most of the people suffer from its symptoms until they die, due to many reasons such as lack of healthcare services, money, and housing. Women and children are the most common victims of malaria, affecting women through pregnancy and causing serious side effects on the child. Moreover, if they had the support, they would not have died that way.
Water from rivers is not suitable for drinking, but every day millions of people have to walk kilometers to drink dirty river water. This water is contaminated, and people who drink it get sick, and can't afford medical assistance.““The number of cases of diarrhea among children has increased some 70 percent in Anbar since the beginning of 2006. Among adults, the increase is 40 percent because they are more resistant than infants,” said Dr. Khalifa Kubaissy.” (Unknown, 2015, p.1). This number is increasing, but the government isn't investing money to fix this issue and help people with low income be healthy. Just 32 percent of the Iraqi population has access to clean drinking water, and only 19 percent has access to a good sewage system (Unknown, 2015, p.1).
Less than a quarter of people in Congo have proper sanitation facilities and fewer than half have access to a clean water source (Africa). This means that water- borne diseases are at power and multiple outbreaks of diarrhoea, bilharzias/schistosomiasis and cholera are very common and carry a deadly blow. Outbreaks of cholera occur every year and around 3% of those who contract the disease die because of lack of treatment (Africa). Even with the huge death toll due to these diseases, malaria and HIV/AIDS are the real threat. In 2009, there were over 6.7 million cases of malaria.
These facilities are neither supervised nor regulated and lack trained staff, equipment, and lifesaving medications. Due to this people die in their own houses or trying to get to a proper hospital. If people die trying to get to one of these facilities they can still help the spread of cholera as people are still contagious after they die. The lack of health care, not high population density is one of the biggest contributors to the rising numbers of cholera epidemics in Kibera. Even if the population density was low, the number of cholera epidemics would remain the
I. Introduction Diarrhoeal disease is second in reasons on why children from the age of 5 and below die. This disease is responsible for the 760,000 children that die every year. Diarrhoea can last for several days and can also leave your body without the water and salts that are necessary for survival. Most people who die from diarrhoea actually die from severe dehydration.
This affliction has made it impossible to see in light and their sufferers have become fully blind when night apperes. The Egyptians have found that they cn could cure sufferers just by feeding them with liver, which usually contains a high levels of vitamin A , whoes deficiency can cause the f which causes night blindness. Its deficiency can still affects one by three of all tge children on Earth under age of four which has , resulting in over more than half a million deaths in each year. Many high dose vitamins which obtain their vitamin A fron from liver, is dangerous at very high levels and also can cause many various health of complications. In the past we have seen that starving tge Antarctic explorers which would eat their own dogs for food sometimes started becaming sick when they had eten in large amounts liver.
It is estimated that about 1 billion people all around the world lack access to clean drinking water. Poor management of water resources has led to the degradation of water. In most cases poor people are the ones who suffer the consequences. It is reported that 80% of all illness in developing countries is related to unclean water and poor sanitation. It is estimated that more than 3 million people die every year due to infectious
