Within 2 days from exposure smallpox vaccine could prevent or reduce the severity in the huge number of colonists. Inoculation treatment was mostly supportive between the days of exposure which provided some protection to modify the disease’s spread in that period. As well, the inoculation method helped wound care, infection control and therapy from burning skin. Smallpox took the colonists into mode of the death due to loss of fluids, poor immune reaction and infection in multiple organs of human body. Besides, smallpox disease developed into other complications even after the inoculation, such as stubby fingers, limiting joint movements etc.
This parasite is actually tolerant to chlorine due to the fact that it has a hard outer shell. If you have a strong immune system, then you will certainly recover quickly after this disease, without seeing a doctor, but if your immune system is weak, then you will certainly be sick for a longer period of time. You will deal with diarrhea, vomiting, and even fever. Legionnaires ' Disease This is another unpleasant disease that can be contacted from public hot tubs. The Legionella germ can cause a severe type of pneumonia, which can be contacted with ease from inhaling bacteria from the steams that a hot tub produces.
The triclosan antiseptic is the most effective killer of E. Coli bacteria; however, recent studies have shown it could be harmful to human health. We recommend to doctors, hospitals, schools and families to use non- triclosan based products to help kill bacteria. Although the most effective killer, triclosan could potentially contribute to the development of antibiotic-resistant germs and be harmful to the immune system. Scientists must find the balance between effectively killing bacteria and the safety of human
There isn’t a cure for it so you can help reduce the pain and shorten the duration. Cool, wet compresses can reduce the pain, if there are blister add diluted vinegar (1 quarter cup vinegar for 2 quarts of water). Soothing baths and lotions help discomfort and itching, the inflicted should try to keep their skin clear and if lesions are oozing they should be kept away from others due to risk of infection. The anti-viral drugs acyclovir, valacyclovir, and famciclovir can be used to treat shingles and they may shorten the duration the course of the illness as well as the severity too, pain killers can also be used to combat the pain from the rashes. So if you have shingles you should: keep the rash covered, avoid scratching and touching, try to keep it clean, and wash your hands often to avoid the spread of varicella zoster
Influenza, “ has been described as the greatest medical holocaust in history” and may have killed as many people as the Black Plague”. This illness, (which originated from southeast asia) was obviously quite lethal, but nowadays we have an effective mean of defense, a vaccine, also known as the flu shot! Influenza is a virus that spreads in droplets caused by coughing or sneezing! It’s symptoms include fevers, chills, muscle aches, coughing, congestion, runny noses, headaches, and fatigue. If you notice that somebody has these symptoms don’t worry it’s not a life or death situation, however you might wanna stay away from them, it’ll save you a huge discomfort!
Other side effects include: headache; diarrhea; nausea; hair thinning or loss; and abnormal liver test results. Fingolimod (Gilenya) is a sphingosine-1-phosphate receptor modulator. Serious side effects are potentially fatal infections, bradycardia and, hemorrhaging focal encephalitis. Currently, two patients have died while taking Gilenya, although it is not clear if the drug was solely responsible. Dimethyl Fumarate (Tecfidera) belongs to a class of drugs called Nrf2 activators and may work by decreasing inflammation thus preventing nerve damage.
It is shows that using DDT can have bad effects on the environment and human health, but the fact that DDT is remains the best known pesticide to eradicate malaria should not be ignored (Roberts et al,2000). I personally believe that human health is of the out-most importance and should be treated as such. It should be protected in all ways possible. With that being said, I believe that countries should continue using DDT as a malaria control and save lives of people that are exposed to the disease, but should discontinue its use in agriculture. The use of DDT should continue until another option, which is same or more effective than DDT but has lesser environmental concerns is
A recently developed a new treatment for macular degeneration with very good results in general (although there are people who do not respond to this treatment), which is based on the use of injections periodic anti-VEGF (vascular endothelial growth ), they are hindering the development of new vessels, which is the alteration that really worsens the prognosis of the disease. Other less frequent macular degeneration, such as the toxic maculopathy , occur as a result of the ingestion of certain substances, such as drugs used in malaria , namely chloroquine, so when this drug is used is eye must perform regular checks, as well as a previous eye
Boil devil’s claw root in water for 10-15 minutes. b. Strain and drink the decoction 1 cup daily. Devil’s claw is contraindicated in persons with heart and blood pressure problem because it might affect heart rate and functions. People with diabetes, gallstones, and pepetic ulcer disease, and taking medications should also avoid this as it could make necessary increases in bodily productions.
Certain antibiotics are also developed to kill certain human cells and are used to cure cancer. All these features of antibiotics are a huge advantage but on the other hand, they have certain disadvantages. Overuse or misuse of antibiotic can cause side effects and can also make the pathogen resistant to the medicine. Some antibiotics kill the good bacteria in the body that are actually helpful in various life processes we carry out. In case of vaccines, the major advantage is the fact that vaccination prepares the immune system against the injected pathogen and of a similar pathogen happens to attack the body in future; it won’t be able to harm the body.
The reason for this lower standard is because of Americas own screw up. They thought that fluoride could help keep teeth healthy and prevent decay; however the fluoride came back and dropped everyone’s IQ level. The U.S put the fluoride into the water
Because of malaria being such a dangerous disease, evolution has valued the resistance to malaria that free radicals give, even though the free radicals can cause hemolytic anemia. Although hemolytic anemia can cause death from cells bursting and kidney or heart failure, this still isn’t as big of an issue to survival rather than malaria. Malaria causes you to be extremely weak, and it causes death a lot more frequently than anemia. Because of the stress that free radicals put on the bacteria that causes malaria, people with favism are more resistant to malaria. It has been shown in research that P. falciparum (the bacteria that causes malaria) prefers blood cells that do not have as many free radicals rather than blood cells that have G6PD deficiency.
