The author begins his rant with his opinion about illegal immigrants bringing exotic diseases, including head lice, into our nation. He sites a case of sick chickens back in the seventies as proof of the problem. Then he begins to rant about “Obama’s stash” giving us the "Liberal answer" (as if this idiot speaks for liberals) His next line is to scare us about the dangers of children mingling with children. Then he attempts to bring credibility to his opinion by claiming to be a veteran as he drifts into a poorly delivered war story about how he brought an exotic disease back from Vietnam. Finally, he ended his incoherent rant with a meaningless rhyme.
So what was he saying? Should we quarantine all the warriors returning from the Bush wars? Are we to fear contact with a veteran of wars because of the chance he/she might be carrying some exotic disease?
Face it. We live in a global world where people can travel around the globe in less than 24 hours. Get your shots, cover your mouth with your sleeve when you cough, wash your hands frequently, avoid touching your eyes, mouth and keep your finger out of your nose and you will be just fine.
Drug-resistant tuberculosis arises in Mexico.
"The public health system issued a health alert across the country in the presence of a challenging disease to be eradicated: tuberculosis, a disease that has acquired a new, more resistant and lethal strain. Mexico City, Mexico. The problem, experts say, is serious, since it is not typical or sensitive tuberculosis, as doctors call it, but of the so-called drug-resistant TB, the multidrug and extremely durable diseases have become immune to one or more drugs that are traditionally used to cure a patient.
Mexico is not the only country with this alert. The disease is an emerging threat on the planet, says the World Health Organization (WHO), an organization that in 2010 warned that drug-resistant tuberculosis reached unprecedented levels, as in parts of Asia and Africa, one in four people is resistant to standard treatment regimens.
The WHO says that in the world there are about 600 thousand new cases a year of multidrug resistance, and that "at least 19% of those with multidrug resistance are extremely resilient, " situation that called for countries to gain access to universal diagnosis and treatment of these types of tuberculosis.
This disease is one of the oldest that attacks mainly the lungs and, if not treated early or adequately, it can cause death. It is spread by air when an infected person coughs and the bacillus spreads through saliva. He stays in people who have an illness that predisposes them and affects their defenses, like diabetes or HIV / AIDS."
