The answer can be seen in the midst of a crisis in 1918. World War I had just ended and people were settling down, hoping to enjoy the peace, when an invisible enemy invaded and killed thousands. Robert Marantz Henig, the author of the article, “The Flu Pandemic,” shows that the Flu Pandemic of 1918, though terrible, had three good impacts on America: It changed the ways scientists view illnesses, it started the
The Black Death, also known as the Bubonic Plague, was arguably the most devastating pandemic in world history. So when the plague hit London from 1665 to 1666, people had a fair reason to be alarmed. My question that I will answer by the end of this essay is that; why was the Great Plague of London important and how did it impact the people of London during that time? The sources I will use are: The Influence of Bubonic Plague in England 1500-1667 by Alan D. Dyer, Plague in London: A Case Study of the Biological and Social Pressures Exerted by 300 Years of Yersinia Pestis by Alice Hall, and The Impact of the Plague on Human Behavior in Seventeenth Century Europe by Judy Staiano. With the help of these three sources, I will reach the answer

The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared the outbreak to be a pandemic because of growing worldwide cases . It cost the society a huge amount in terms of morbidity and mortality and monetary cost as well with a typical flu pandemic.

Pollan writes about the current obesity issues in America in paragraph six, “According the surgeon general, obesity today is officially an epidemic; it is arguably the most pressing public health problem we face, costing the health care system an estimated $90 billion a year.” (qtd. in Prentice Hall 284). These issues are said to affect even more people than the alcohol related diseases. Pollan talks about the obesity issues again in paragraph six, “Three of every five Americans are overweight; one of every five is obese.” (qtd. in Prentice Hall 284).
As mentioned in my first paragraph, AIDS was first recognised in In 1981 and It was recognised as a global killer, AIDS now threatens to excel the Black Death of the 14th century and the influenza pandemic which was from 1918–1920. Each of which killed not less than 50 million people (Kohn,G, 1995). Some of the emerging and ‘re-emerging diseases that have followed the appearance of AIDS have been minor curiosities, for example; in 2003 there were cases of monkey pox imported into the United States (Wisconsin, 2003) whereas other infections. Such as severe acute respiratory syndrome emerged in the same year, but have had a worldwide impact. Emerging infections can be expected to remain a considerable Challenge for the future.
World War II provided a huge backdrop for a major expansion and improvements in the medical field. Medical inventions like sulfanilamide saved plenty of lives during the war and many historians credit the invention with helping allied forces win World War II. With penicillin, the chance of wound infections for soldiers vastly reduced, so survival rates also raised. Plasma was also of very great usage because 15,000 units of plasma were distributed in just five months of the war! Microscopes were also created and they opened up a new perspective in the medical field.
As per the latest study conducted by the World Health Organization, one billion people smoke worldwide, which constitute about 20% of the entire world population. Cigarette smoking has numerous health hazards however, lung cancer is the most known to generations. Smoking, at the same time, is also responsible for cardiovascular disease and heart stroke. But accelerated aging continues to remain the most ignored and standard side effect of smoking. Although, aging is an unstoppable natural phenomenon of the human body, which none of us really likes, consistent smokers get this damage severed, in a more intense and rapid way.
