Update: West Nile Virus Activity — United States, 2005
It’s a wonder we don’t all lock ourselves in our houses, seal up every little crack, and cower in the corner for fear of contracting ebola, west nile, influenza, necretizing fascitis or some other “disease of the day” condiiton. The fear given to the spread of West Nile was considerable, and, in truth, people have died from West Nile. But 83? How much effort and money was spent towards “educating” people about West Nile? Compare that to the amount of money spent on educating the public about refined carbs, which can lead to insulin resistance and kills hundreds of thousands per year. In case you can’t find any data on how much money is spent on refined carbs, I’m pretty sure it’s not much more that $10 collectively across the US.
