Why are there so many of the little bloodsuckers right now? That's because climate change is widening the insect's range and lengthening its prime season. So more people are turning to the booming professional extermination industry, but the chemical bombardment deployed by exterminators worries scientists who fear that overuse of pesticides is harming pollinators and making worse a growing threat to birds that eat insects. Federal officials report dramatic increases in illnesses spread by mosquitos and other blood feeders including Zika and west Nile virus.

"I'm doctor Anthony Liz, and this is climate connections. Sitting outside on a summer evening can be relaxing. Unless mosquitos are out. These insects are not just annoying. Some spread west Nile virus and other diseases. Caitlin O'Donnell is an entomologist at Norfolk county, Massachusetts, mosquito control district. She says mosquitos are sensitive to temperature, so global warming may allow some species to expand their ranges or move north, and rainfall patterns affect which species are prevalent in a given year. We know that if certain species of mosquitos, if their populations are increasing, we know that the risk level to the human population is going to be changing. Last summer, Massachusetts got a lot of rain, and with it a record number of the mosquito species that breed in floodplains. She says these mosquitos are aggressive biters, but less likely to carry west Nile. She says in her region, the species most likely to carry west Nile tend to thrive in drier years, because they breed in stagnant water that lingers in places like storm drains. And so that is when you'll see a lot more west Nile virus activity. So eliminating standing water in your yard and wearing mosquito protection can help you stay safe on summer evenings.

"People are now free. Doctor Marc Leopold, I don't think there was very much choice. I think the British certainly in Africa had not really prepared for decolonization. The fact that many of the officers in the army resigned and left the KAR rather than getting involved in the transition to independence. They quite clearly had never thought about it. The idea that Africans might rule themselves had not really occurred to certainly the military side of the operation. And then suddenly their faced with a depleted Britain dependent on U.S. aid and the Americans effectively telling Britain to give up the empire. It was in a sense hurried and unprepared for. And in another sense it was far too late and should have been done long before. It certainly would be difficult to justify saying Britain should have kept its African empire longer in order to educate the natives into how to run their country, which was the position taken by some of the British colonial officers at the time. But it certainly true that it was rushed and messy affair. Probably because the people who were doing it didn't want to do it and had been forced into it. The army is now under Ugandan control, albeit with a rump of British officers still entrenched in senior positions. Idi Amin has been divested of the shackles of the colonial military hierarchy. He becomes a captain. In November 1963, he's promoted to major. A year after independence Uganda declares itself a full republic. Though it maintains its Commonwealth membership and keeps the queen as head of state. In name, at least. Despite the optimism, there are evident growing pains in this new independent nation. The new Ugandan leader Milton a boate wants to pursue a policy of africanization. This means repatriating government into Ugandan hands. But it's not running entirely smoothly. Professor Marian mufti. The gravity of how uneven economic and political development had been. In the Ugandan British colony hits home only after the British depart. And the British justified that to themselves by saying, hey, African nationalism is on the rise, and we are giving Africa back to the Africans and we're doing them a good turn so to speak. And let them fend for themselves now. They think they can rule themselves better than we ever did. So let them have it. A polite is only just taken office, but already his position is precarious. It's no surprise that his government is finding independence a challenge. In the absence of the imposed order of colonialism, there is no external force to hold this artificial construct, the republic of Uganda together. Take the west Nile, the region from whence Amin hills. It was only added to colonial Uganda in 1912. It had formerly been part of the Belgian Congo, then the Sudan. The frontiers of the Ugandan protectorate were not finalized until 1926. The country in its present shape has been around for barely 30 years. A mere blip. Of course, the Ugandan people have a shared historical experience. But viewing the peoples of East Africa through a narrow colonial lens is to ignore thousands of years of their story. Before the British arrived, the land we call Uganda was a patchwork quilt of independent kingdoms, as well as independent tribal areas. There have been fierce rivalries sometimes armed conflicts between bogan and bonjoro. Between the west Nile tribes on one side and the Lange and the chole on the other. A few mere decades of British rule were never going to put a stop to that. This new arrangement, Uganda, it feels as one commentator puts it more like an arranged marriage than a genuine love match. But his power relies on his ability to balance out different tribal interests. Uganda is now being run according to a federal system. This means regional voices and political groupings are very significant. The problem in Uganda, like in many other ex colonies is that 70% of the population is occupied in the rural sector. However, they generate only 20% of the growth. Well, that's just problematic. It's problematic well, because how do you generate the kind of economic growth that is required for a ex colony to thrive once the colonial master has removed all of its patronage and removed the defensive capacity of the colony. What you've left behind are simmering identities, people who dislike each other, tremendously. And an economic sector that has been ravaged. About his barely gotten his feet under the desk, but already there are grumblings. As there are elsewhere within the former East African colonies, not least in military circles. We're generally agreed that the colonial project itself brings all kinds of problems and creates all kinds of challenges and has a real negative side at the same time. The speed with which colonialism ends, the process of decolonization is rapid. Uganda has only been a protectorate for some decades. I think abandonment is actually a very useful term to have in mind here, because there is an extent to which this is abandoned. This is this is Britain giving up on a project that had just started in many ways for some of these countries. And whatever the moral questions around it, and these are very important. The long-term effects on nation and state building are undeniably going to be ones that have a damaging effect because you've got institutions that have barely existed for very long. You've got militaries that have only just been formed within which there's only a handful of trained officers that have until now been dominated by British officers who are now gone. So you have extremely unprepared institutions. And this is definitely the case in Uganda..

"Emergency cameron's belief is that not only can timely action changed the course of a disease outbreak it can potentially even stop it from evolving. It's a pleasure to welcome. Dr cameron con to the program. Come and thank you so much for being with us and just to start off with tell us a little about your background personal and professional and how you well how. You came to be sat where you're sitting today. My interest in this area actually goes back about twenty years. So i'm a physician grew up here in toronto in canada after doing my medical training i decided to specialize in infectious diseases. I think as an immigrant to canada myself in a family of immigrants know. I think i was always fascinated with travel in human migration and the movements of people around the world. That was the area that i went to specialize in when i did some of my postgraduate training down at cornell and columbia and harvard and in one thousand nine hundred ninety nine. I was living in new york city when this unusual paralytic illness showed up in queens new york city and it turned out to be. West nile virus a virus that we'd actually never seen in north america locally spreading in that particular way and of course we know the story. West nile virus. Is that it started to move. Westward established itself and has forever changed the landscape of the continent so that was kind of an interesting an eye opening experience. Two years later in two thousand and one i was living in manhattan again when nine eleven happened and then you may recall shortly after anthrax was weaponized in san through the us postal system and so that was another a crisis that we were in This time not from a particular microbe coming from mother nature but rather a bacterium that was manufactured and deliberately dispersed so that was again in other really eye opening experience that had had highlighted in a short period of time that infectious disease threats can be incredibly disruptive to society and then i moved back to toronto again which is was home for me and that was in two thousand and three and you may remember in two thousand and three. The world was going through the first novel. Corona virus outbreaks sars and shortly. After getting here we had this outbreak of sars in our city. It actually went on for four very long months and it was something that really hit close to home for me. One of my colleagues a veteran infectious disease physician got infected with czars and not had a ten percent mortality rate far more deadly than covered nineteen and i saw in many ways the disruption that we're all living through now during the pandemic overwhelmed healthcare system and overwhelmed public health system economic impacts to the travel and tourism and hospitality sectors here in the cities. No one wanted to come to the city. And even some underlying social disruption intentions within society stemming from fear of this particular virus so when i when i looked at the four year period between west nile viruses introduction into north america and sars koby one that was an indication to me that more threats were coming and ultimately that was inspired me to spend the next ten years of my career after i moved back to toronto as an academic study outbreaks over the past. Twenty years i've been. I've been doing that trying to look at ways that we can be smarter and more agile and more responsive to infectious disease threats. But after ten years of doing that as an academic. I think what i realize is we have to move not just smarter when responding these kinds of threats. We have to move faster as well. And that's what led me to found blue dot in two thousand thirteen. It was largely around the use of data and advanced analytics and digital technologies and building digital global epidemic intelligence platform that we could leverage in harness. Ten again move faster smarter and be better coordinated when responding to future threats. I think what strikes me as really interesting kerman is the you you can track this fascination for looking at preparedness response to these future threats and then that ten year gap Intrigues me that you've mentioned if we jump forward then to twenty thirteen in the origin. You've already mentioned this realization. I suppose about the power of data the potential for ai to really do things in terms of scale ability. That perhaps haven't been there before. Was that way twenty. Thirteen was if it was indeed an inflection point because suddenly you had at your disposal real tools that enabled you to do these things that are clearly had been a long term. Ambition was a happy confluence of what the technology afforded you at the very moment where this decade of of study and academia and all that rigor they kind of came together. Just this sort of serendipitous moment. Yeah i would say so. I mean it was a confluence of different factors. That brought this altogether one was just the recognition that these threats weren't going away you may recall in two thousand and nine. We actually were in the middle of it another pandemic that was the h. One n one influenza pandemic not as severe as what we're going through today but we had also seen the emergence of the middle east respiratory syndrome in two thousand and twelve so a number of different threats in an external events were happening around the world coupled with capabilities for manipulating data and computing capabilities. To make sense of these massive amounts of data. What i will say is the ultimate inspiration was really around. Something that might seem a bit mundane. Which is the workflow that we have to go through to assassin infectious disease threat in the world. And what i mean by that is for every single threat. That's out there we've to i detected. We have to assess its potential poor dispersion and disruption and then we have to respond to it you know that process because infectious diseases. It sounds like when we talk about outbreaks. So we're talking about one thing but really what we're talking about is an incredibly heterogeneous group of things. We're talking about hundreds of different microbes that can appear anywhere in the world at any in time and so what that ultimately leads to is. It requires us to have a very specialized set of skills. Subject matter experts experts in data analytics technology. And it's a very manual and labor intensive process which makes it slow as you can imagine outbreaks move incredibly fast and if we want to be a step.

"Are broadcasting live from dallas texas on iheart media as well as in southern california on. Abc news talk. If you're just joining us. I'll give a quick bio for dr stevenson entre. He has more than forty years of clinical practice research and study and is currently the adviser for research and development for of nutritional supplements with healthy directions. He is a bestselling author of more than a dozen books including one of my favorites that great cholesterol meth reversing heart disease. Now the coq ten phenomenon heart sense for women the sinatra solution and metabolic cardiology and his most recent book heaven and earth. I can't wait to get a copy of it. So doctor sinatra. I've got so many questions for you but let me start with us. Because we're you know we're focusing in on allergies during the worst season ever and it's possible connection to heart disease so what are your top for herbs and supplements for allergies and heart health. Well i mentioned course attended. That's number one. I love vitamin d. I mean vitamin is so important You know not only in in nineteen you know. People with the highest blood levels of vitamin d do not get to complications from cove nineteen. That's very very interesting. So i would tell any person. Suffering from allergies take vitamin d as well as a preventive kobe. Nineteen because i mean taking five thousand units a day will not hurt you over the in Along allergy season. I like n single system and we call it neck and ac lee. The fda is taken off the market. Because it's so medicinal. I mean. I i have loved naqvi years It's broken down to glutathione. And then you know with the combination of selenium and vitamin c into body. We form the enzyme What we call glutathione peroxidase. Which is the most immune supporting enzyme in the entire body. So you know. I love knack. I love coenzyme q ten. I have to tell you you know. You're playing a little bit of nancy sinatra junior on tv about twenty five years ago and she calls me up to see if i was related to her previous husband frank basically I ended up putting around co q. Ten because she was interested in vitamins and minerals she was do you realize she died when she was one hundred and one and a half she only died like go. Yeah yeah this is frank. Sinatra's first wife. Nancy senior able to house all the time in southern california and stuff like that. She's a wonderful woman. Just a wonderful woman and she took and i saw her about a year before she passed and she was louis area died and sharp and she was thinking co q. Ten all the time. Which again i think is very very important you know. In this day and age of you know killer bacteria viruses et cetera. Because one of the things about co q. ten that we need to know about It sort of puts a blanket on inflammatory mediators and the problem with inflammatory mediators and a lot of people know about c reactive protein into lose six and kappa. These are inflammatory. Cytokines released in the body In response to inflammation and and and the release of these covert nineteenth can be disastrous but coenzyme q ten not only puts a on these they help to prevent these Inflammatory mediators but co q. Ten supports what we call endothelial cell function which is really the bingo In in hemorrhagic lesions with kobe nineteen. So i'm in when it comes to coenzyme q ten and one of my favorite new ones as antra graph is..

So what are once a win. Are these madison's counterproductive. Like you just said about the high blood pressure and Well any over the counter medications can cause problems i mean. Let's think of the most common over the counter medication that we all take as aspirin. People don't realize that nineteen thousand people a year die from aspirin because of gastrointestinal bleeding. In other words anybody listening on your program who abdominal upset from aspirin should not take Take it because erosion of the stomach in a lot of people take it to prevent heart disease. I'll take a baby aspirin or an adult aspirin. A day and an aspirin can cause a lot of problems. I mean as a heart specialist. Trust me. i've seen a lot of people at aspirin in my lifetime. You know aspirins a good to bed on the. There's there's no doubt about it What's what's the best diet for someone. Who's struggling with allergies dr synopsis. Good question. good question. I you know at first i would say dairy free for sure And then i would say sugar free But now even gluten free. I mean i think the gluten allergy is. You know we used to. Do you know the people that silly actively you shouldn't take gluten but now we're seeing so many people who cross react with gluten. No i think gluten dairy and shook it would be the three evils and if people are suffering from allergies these foods should be avoided at all costs because it will contribute to the overall chronic. Inflammatory response dairies. A big one. Can we talk about that for a second. Well yeah i mean. I can tell you this coming from a diabetic family myself. My grandmother and my mother was diabetic. I mean now. We're seeing these milk. Allergens given to children where the milk allergens can be. Destructive to the pancreas so we can say you know. Type one diabetes occurring and children as an extreme. I use extreme example to allergy milk. So i mean you know some of these food situations that that interact with you. Know different antigens in the body. can have disastrous circumstances. So you know we have to be very very careful going forward and and so what what foods help with allergies. I'm guessing plant based on plant. Based i mean my favorite plant based food is course. It's in i mean course it's to me even colvin. Nineteen is a lifesaver ten.

"Launch into our local news around out via those darn culex. Mosquitoes like i said earlier before the top of the hour news this morning. Haven't we dealt with enough now. We've got those q lex. Mosquitoes testing positive for west nile. Virus in weld county. Where confirmed piece by morgan. Mackenzie out of the greeley trip. This as the wild county department of public health and environment recently announced the county's first detection of west nile in mosquitoes. This year the q. Likes mosquitoes around. Colorado have been more common than in past years according to the weld county department of public health and environment. In fact the q lex count is more than three times higher for this year's mosquito season which ranges by the way from april to october compared to the past five year average mark lally is executive director of the weld county health department. He said that weather conditions in the county like the hot weather and thunderstorms are preferable climate for mosquitoes with the virus now. The health department monitors mosquito traps in three zones throughout weld. County's zone one greeley evans kersee and lasalle to johnstown mulligan. Platt ville zone three is firestone to kono and fort lupton -squitoes that tested positive for west nile are located in zone. One again greeley evans courtesy and lasalle. Now thankfully there are no human cases of the virus but experts. Expect that to change as as the season continues. Lally said in a release that we all need to be vigilant because west nile virus has a permanent summer presence in colorado. Did you know there are really no medications or vaccines to treat. West nile virus but less than one percent of people infected develop serious or fatal illnesses sadly some have succumbed to west nile. Virus symptoms for the virus include fever nausea vomiting muscle aches headache and rash. These symptoms can appear three to fourteen days after infection however once again most people don't show any system so let's talk about as we do each and every year What health professionals actually recommend when it comes to preventing mosquito bites. I for one am terrified of mosquitoes. There you go. How's that for being transparent. Could have little something something to do. When way back. When i was on vacation in jamaica and was bitten by one of those nasty little critters and got dengue fever. Dengue fever called breakbone fever. For a reason it is one of the most miserable maladies you can ever imagine. So i see. I mean mosquitoes. I'm like oh no so anyway. that's just me. Let's get to the four ds up preventing mosquito bites. I one drain always drain water around the house from like from cans that might be sitting outside flowerpots toys rain gutters anything else. That has the potential of collecting standing water. Dusk and dawn remember. Mosquitoes are most active at dusk and dawn. So you might wanna think about limiting your activities outdoors or take precautions if you are outside of the precautions. Deet an effective ingredients in insect repellent. To look for is deed. Other infective gradients are. How do you say this picardy. And i are thirty five thirty five or para methane dyal functions of course on repellents very carefully and then it comes to dress or tire as the case may be you wanna dress appropriately as these culex mosquitoes. That are testing positive. For west nile virus in weld county have sprung up. So if you're out particularly around dusk or dawn you wanna wear long sleeves pants and a hat in the areas or during the times of again dusk and dawn when mosquitoes are most active..

Um, we have just about a minute. Wait a minute. Um, so we might have to take A break. But, you know, can you elaborate on that about beekeeping in kind of an urban environment, Hillary or in or or even the solitary bees in an urban environment? Yeah, I mean, keeping the solitary bees in an urban environment. You definitely can not only limitation is that you have to create Habitat. There might be existing habitat and it would work out for you, but it's better if you're contributing to that by planting for them, And like I said, You don't need very much space to do that. I've seen people who don't just put those little bee houses on their balconies like of an apartment building and they'll get bees in there. So it's worth trying. And you just never know.

Medical Residents To Receive Education On Health Effects Of Climate Change

"Teaching doctors about the health effects of climate change is growing from medical schools to the residency programs where new physicians put their skills to the test. But skeptics wonder if it's appropriate for doctors to learn how climate change can affect Human Health Martha Bebinger of member station W. R. in Boston Begins Her story in clinic exam room. I just remember for so many months it was hard for you to walk. There are three people in this exam room doctor Gora. A resident he's training and seventy one year old Steve Kerns who is recovering from West Nile virus, Kerns remembers the mosquito bite on his neck but very little about the brain infection that landed him in the hospital for a week for at least six months after that. I felt like every five minutes I was being run over by a truck I couldn't work. I couldn't walk very well. And I couldn't focus. A wondered for bit if I'd ever get better now, almost two years later Kern says he's back to about five hours a day on the job making windows and doors, and he started reading again the sounds like you've made tremendous progress. Dr. Charlotte Roses is a third year primary care resident at Cambridge Hospital. It seems like tremendous progress. that. It was scary. It was scary. It was it was definitely scary us and I'm not scared anymore although. Can I get worse now over again, Dr seuss sympathizes with the fear West Nile is still rare. There were no cases in Massachusetts before two thousand and two in two, thousand, eighteen year a mosquito bit kerns cases had climbed to forty nine mosquitoes love warm temperatures and so when temperatures increase mosquitoes can have breeding seasons the virus itself West alka replicate faster and they. Bite more more active Basu learned a lot of this while treating, Kerns. He was buses i West Nile case when someone comes in with a fever and his confused, it's not what my mind thinks of as the diagnosis right away. This case has really taught me how much I need to be informed about the ways in which climate change is changing the patterns of infectious. Disease. Around the United States to inform his residence busu added the health impacts of climate change to an elective courses teaches Ross says residents need much more. This is something that needs to be more directly integrated into the curriculum because I think it's going to have such a huge impact on human health. There are no approved curricula for hospitals that might want to tell emerging. Lung specialists about longer pollen seasons as temperatures rise or teach new emergency room physicians to consider more waterborne diseases for patients with fever and diarrhea. But Pediatrician Rebecca Phillips born at Emory University has just published. A framework hospitals can use as a starting point. Patients want physicians to be able to provide guidance on things that affect their individual help. We have this accumulating body of. That climate change does just that it poses harms to our patients Dr Stanley Goldfarb, the former associate dean for curriculum at the University of Pennsylvania's medical school says hospitals trained doctors not. He worries that discussing climate change with patients might create mistrust I. Think there are concerns about getting into the political sphere because I'm against anything that's going to. represent a barrier between patients and physicians being comfortable with each other other physicians. See Wildfires, sweeping western states and hurricanes flooding the Gulf coast and say, we want to impart this information to our residents as fast as we can because it's so important that they gain this information sooner than later advocates say including climate change in residency training won't stick and tell doctors are tested on the health effects before they are licensed to practice medicine for NPR news I'm Martha Bebinger in Boston.
