Room 102, Labour Group Office PO Box 2, Civic Centre Station Road HARROW HA1 2UH Dear Gareth Thomas, I am writing to inform you that due to the rising levels of greenhouse gases, Global warming has made our planet at risk. This letter will be about how global warming is affecting our planet and how it is starting to affect our people. I will also inform you about how disease control is investigated and practised, the future spread of diseases, how the disease may affect us and how global warming is just not a hotter plant. I will also suggest ideas to reduce Global warming and to prevent diseases spreading to the country The population in the 1800's was only one billion people and now in 2011 it is predicted to be a staggering 7 billion people. More people being born and less people dying has resulted in this exponential growth. This graph shows you the rate of population growth between the developed countries and the developing countries. You can see that the population has not changed too much in the developed countries however the population in developing is has increased at an alarming rate. ...read more.


Malaria is caused by a parasite which goes into the mosquito and when the mosquito bites the human then they inject the disease to the person. A person with sickle cell anaemia cannot get malaria because the Malaria parasite attacks the red blood cells and the Malaria parasite can only attack a regular red blood cell as their DNA is different so the Malaria parasite cannot attack it. The symptoms of Malaria are high fever, fatigue, chills, sweating, spleen enlargement and nausea. Increased rainfall and higher temperature will produce more of the anaflease mosquito which is a vector for Malaria. Dengue Fever is a tropical disease caused by the dengue virus. This virus is then goes inside a mosquito and the mosquito acts like a vector to the human. 80% of the people who are affected get minor symptoms like low fever however some people develop major symptoms like slow heart rate, headaches, nosebleeds, rash and diarrhoea. The rising of temperature will produce more mosquitos which will spread the diseases in different areas. Leishmaniasis is a disease caused by protozoan parasites which causes ulcers on the body. The symptoms of Leishmaniasis are ulcers, fever, anemia and enlargement of the spleen. ...read more.


have domestic Vector Protection to stop vectors from infecting people, Drain swamps, plants GM crops to produce more food and educate people about these diseases so that they can avoid them. However in order to prevent these diseases from spreading we need to * Burn less fossils fuels * Recycle more so that like product go into the landfill * Use public transport * Use renewable energy like Solar power, Wind power and hydroelectric power * Grow more plants Also Global Warming has many other negative effects like * Overheating of the planet * More Natural Disasters * More animals like the polar bear will become extinct * The sea levels will rise * Increase probability of droughts leading to malnutrition * Ice cap melting * More Forest and Wildfires Overall I think that we need avoid increasing the rate of Global warming, and we should plan for the future as if may suffer as a consequence of our actions. We should avoid using fossil fuels and use other alternatives like renewable energy sources and we should try to develop and developing countries so that the population does not increase drastically and we can slow down the rate of Global warming if we all make a few changes to our lives. Yours Sincerely Sally Daydream ...read more.

    even in hospitals stop working after a certain period of time, and we do not realize it. To do this experiment, we would probably have to add very small, dilute amounts of cleaner to the bacteria, perhaps killing some but letting some remain alive.

  2. The comparison of bacterial content in a range of milks.

    the milk should have killed off the majority of bacteria that is found in milk. To begin with, I would believe that the raw milk would have considerably higher amounts of bacteria present, due to the fact it hasn't gone through the pasteurization process.

    Eumycetoma is a subcutaneous fungal infection caused by Madurella mycetomatis, endemic almost exclusively in Sudan (Ahmed et al. 2002). After the initial implantation of the fungus, Madurella remains inactive until another stress such as a cut or thorn prick occurs.

    The liquid fuels are more complex mixtures of hydrocarbons. In industrialized countries the burning of fossil fuels provides most of the energy that humans need. Many scientists have predicted rising sea levels to accelerate and rise about 30cm if current trends continue.
