This includes; Texas, Oklahoma, Kentucky, Delaware, Maryland and West Virginia is worse compared to other regions, Southerners happen to be uninsured, less likely to have access to needed health services, and likely to experience a number of health conditions such as diabetes and heart disease.People of color in Mississippi have shorter life expectancy than the average white American did in 1959. This state has a very high obesity rate of about 35%, and is also considered to have a very high poverty rate compared to other regions in the United States. It also has only one abortion clinic. However, It’s not all doom and gloomy.
There are some measures that can be taken to help remedy this problem. The government should embrace technology, eliminate the perverse free-for-service payment and consolidate services for better quality for lower costs. RatsRats are everywhere. There’s even a popular saying about the poor church mouse. These small guys thrive in the weirdest of places be it in the bushes, garbage collection points or even in our sewage.They are tiny guys but dangerous.
Their scratch or bite can easily cause a fever. The rat urine is also responsible for liver and kidney damage. They spread a disease called leptospirosis.
This disease causes the liver to fail, it also causes the renal system to fail and can bring about cardiovascular problems Lymphocytic choriomeningitis (LCMV) is an infectious viral disease is passes from one person to another though the urine and saliva of rats. It has several effects on an individual. They can either be short term of long term.Bubonic plague is caused by Yersinia pestis, bacteria that can be found on fleas from rats’ bodies. Within a week of being exposes to the bacteria, one may develop vomiting, fever and headaches. Painful swollen lymph nodes also develop close to where the bacteria entered the skin.
Humans contract this illness by being bitten by infected vector fleas, coming into contact with bodily fluids of the rats that are contaminated or breathing in particles that are infected.Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome (HPS) is another illness causes by these little guys. It is mostly contracted in areas close to forests or farms. An example would be a barn in a farm. Here one is easily exposed to the virus that causes this disease. It is caused by the Sin Nombre virus commonly found inhabiting in the deer mouse. Research shows that the virus is transmitted when someone comes into contact with something contaminated with the rodents’ saliva, urine or droppings then touch their mouth or nose. Eating contaminated food can also spread the virus REFERENCES World Health Organization (2014).
