10 Deadly Diseases Transmitted Between Species

by on May.16, 2010, under Uncategorized

deseaseIn my country, bacteria and viruses is a creature that is very easy to breed and the disease it causes highly contagious. At present a number of contagious and deadly disease has been transferred from animals to humans and from humans to animals. What are the deadly disease?

Cross-species infection could come from farms or markets, which creates conditions of mixing of pathogens. That give pathogens an opportunity to exchange genes and equipment up to the earlier killing of foreign host.

Transmission can also occur from activities that seem trivial and harmless, like letting a monkey riding on top of your head, a lot happens on the streets in Bali.

Microbes from the two varieties can even be assembled in your intestines, the virus evolved and make some 'dancing' to turn you into a host of infectious and deadly.

Infectious diseases from animals to humans is called zoonosis. There are more than three dozen diseases, whether transmitted through touch as well as from the bite.

As quoted from the LiveScience,the following 10 deadly infectious disease from cross-species:

1. Influenza pandemics

Deadly flu pandemic like the Spanish flu, swine flu or bird flu has struck in several countries. Potential pandemic is very easily spread by direct contact, so that could be very dangerous.

Between 1918 and 1919, Spanish flu killed 20 to 40 million people. This is truly a global disaster. This deadly flu attacked people ages 20 to 40 years, and infects 28 percent of Americans.

And lately also emerging swine flu and avian influenza that has become epidemic in some countries. Now, governments are better prepared, scientifically and logistics to manage the outbreak. However, there is no vaccine against swine flu.

2. Plague

Pestilence known as 'Black Death', is an infectious disease caused by the bacterium Yersinia pesti, most often carried by rodents and fleas. At mid-century, millions of people across Europe died from plague caused by rat infestation that is widely available in homes and offices.

3. Diseases due to bites

Zoonotic diseases is expected to rise due to the bite of an animal that kills hundreds of thousands of people every year. Mosquitoes are the main causes, such as dengue fever and malaria.

Nerve Disease Migraine Apparently Derivatives

by on May.14, 2010, under International Issues

sarafIn Cambridge, people first learned about migraine from the time of 1500 BC (BCE). The headaches are commonly experienced, but few understand it. And the fact that migraine is a disease carried since birth and is derived from the parent.

Although migraine is not life threatening, but the headaches this is a disease classified as severe and many people do not know.

“In fact, migraine is a complex neurological disease that affects the central nervous system and is accompanied by physical symptoms and emotional,” said Dr. Carolyn Bernstein, neurologists from Cambridge Health Alliance-Cambridge Campus, as reported from Dailymail .

Dr. Bernstein himself attracted to specialize neurology because it is also often experienced a migraine since the age of 20 years. According to him, not many people know about the causes of migraine disease and how to overcome them. So that specialization is quite attractive.

And in his book entitled 'The Migraine Brain', Dr. Bernstein explains that migraine is caused by brain abnormalities.

Migraine is not a result of mental health problems or signs of hypochondria (health phobia or worry too much with a serious illness), or patient error.

Migraine is a chronic neurological disorder from birth, and in many cases the disease is inherited from both parents.

Migraine is derived from the mother

The surprise was one of five women and one of 20 men in the UK has been suffering from migraine. Migraine is the ninth leading cause of disability in the world, and is more common than diabetes or asthma.

Research shows that between 70 to 80 percent suffer from migraines have a family history of migraine also suffered, especially of maternal factors.

Because this disease is caused by a genetic condition, then there is no drug that can actually cure the disease. Existing medications can only reduce and minimize the symptoms caused.

According to Dr. Bernstein, who has no experience or history of migraine an exact match. This can lead to very difficult to compare the trigger migraines experienced by a person to another.

There is a myth that says that migraine sufferers should avoid chocolate and foods with MSG. This is not entirely correct. For some people this might be kind of food can be a migraine trigger, but this did not apply for all people who suffer from migraine.

Every person has different triggers. Migraine triggers may be from red wine, weather changes, lack of sleep or the stinging smell of perfume.

The trigger is not only disrupt the brain, but also interferes with the work, because it triggers biochemical chain reactions that can cause some symptoms.

Unlike a regular headache, migraine also involves an entirely different experience and almost always include some reactions and physical symptoms.

85 percent of migraine patients experience continuous throbbing head, the pain is felt with every beat of heart, like a knife who stabbed repeatedly in the head.

For years, doctors thought that migraine is caused by vasodilation, ie widening of blood vessels in the brain and suppress the structure-sensitive to pain.

True, for many patients with migraine, headache is one of the symptoms that accompany migraine. But the migraine itself almost never just a pain in the head, there are other symptoms that accompany it.

Migraine symptoms such as nausea and vomiting, sensitivity to light or sound, numbness or odd sensations in the skin, changes in vision, hunger, speech slurred, his eyes red and excessive crying. These symptoms are very diverse and complex.

Aku Hanya MANUSIA Biasa

by on Mar.23, 2010, under Uncategorized

Yusran Adhitya KurniawanAku tak tahu apakah ini anugerah atau kutukan? Aku pun tak pernah menginginkannya. Yang kumengerti dan ku yakini adalah hatiku yang peka, selalu menyeruku menyelamatkan dunia, namun tak perhan memberi kesempatan untuk memiliki kehidupanku sendiri.
Malamku penuh perjuangan, teriakkan, rasa sakit dan peluh. Malamku ku lewatkan bersama baju zirah dan sayapku, terbang secepat mungkin hingga tak pernah sedetik pun ku mengenal bulan dan terangnya bintang yang berkerlip genit. Hariku penuh bara, rentetan peluru, darah dan pukulan. Sebisa mungkin ku sembunyikan diriku di balik wajah gagah nan garang. Tugasku terlampau mudah. Sekedar melelehkan baja dengan api, kadang membekukan bara, sekedar untuk menyelamatkan dunia.
Semakin aku memukul, semakin deras darah tertumpah. Kejahatan tak pernah ada habisnya. Karena ia adalah bagian dari diri manusia. Namun pilihan yang menentukannya. Tak seperti aku yang tak bisa memilih, karena bagiku semau adalah keharusan, bukan hak ku. Padahal di balik topeng gagah ini ada setetes air mata yang setiap saat bisa membasahi tubuh baja yang di dalamnya ada hati yang lunak, selalu menjerit, “aku ingin menjadi manusia saja!”
