What can we do on World Malaria Day?

CDC, MosquitoA few years ago I visited India, a country where malaria is regularly found. This disease sickens more than 200 million people each year, 80% of them children. It was the first time I had thought seriously about my health and considered the risk I was taking by potentially coming into contact with malaria. Given the preventative drug options given to me by my doctor, I felt comfortable taking my trip.

 

Listen to your body!

Last weekend I came down with a nasty stomach virus.  It started with a headache that came and went several times for two days. Then I felt my body get weaker and weaker. Soon my head was spinning, my stomach ached, and I couldn't even stand up.  Instead of fighting through it to accomplish my neverending list of tasks, I decided to lie down on the couch. Within an hour I was much worse and was forced to abandon any social plans and get into bed.

Celebremos la Semana de la Tierra!

Tal como nos cuenta en su blog nuestro colega de SEED Tom Lough, la celebración del “Día de la Tierra se inicia oficialmente en 1970, al mismo tiempo que se inicia el movimiento ecológico que lo promueve.” La celebración del Día de la Tierra y la paz fue propuesto el 1969 por el activita Americano John McConnell durante una conferencia de UNESCO en San Francisco, pero fue el senador de Wisconsin, Gaylord Nelson, quien oficialmente lo declaró el Día de la Tierra el 22 de Abril de 1970.
