Is the changing climate also affecting our health? The Doctors discuss new research which links climate change to the rise of infectious diseases -- some of which are deadly!
We welcome infectious disease researcher Dr. Ravina Kullar who explains warm temperatures can lead to more rainfall and more mosquitos. She fears a “mosquito apocalypse” is near and worries about the pest being a carrier of things like Yellow Fever, Zika, Dengue Fever, and West Nile Virus.
She explains these diseases are usually found in places like South America, Mexico and areas with warm tropical climates like Asia, but she notes there are signs these infected mosquitos migrating north to America.
She is also concerned about Eastern Equine Encephalitis, (which has a 1 in 3 risk of death, according to the CDC). She notes many of these infections do not currently have treatment options and only the symptoms can be addressed.
The Doctors explain the best way to avoid getting bitten by a mosquito is the use of repellent, wearing clothing that covers the body and to eliminate standing water. They also note that when using insect repellents to make sure it contains the ingredient DEET and that it is 30 percent of the repellent.
