Los amigos de quemar madera les dirán que los bosques más nuevos son superiores en su capacidad para compensar las emisiones de carbono.

Pues no, los bosques primarios no emiten CO2 y los bosques jóvenes no almacenan más carbono.

Breve hilo ⤵️⤵️
Para empezar les traigo 4 estudios que muestran como, en comparación con los bosques primarios y maduros, la reserva media de carbono a largo plazo de los bosques explotados que han vuelto a crecer es de 30-70 por ciento inferior. ⤵️⤵️

In #PLOSOne: Annual cost only of dialysis exceeds 11% of the public health budget. To this we must add costs of hospitalization & treatment of comorbidities. Even still, not all CKD patients in #Ecuador have access to renal replacement therapy.

A 🧵

Not all provinces in #Ecuador have nephrologists while some only have them available in the private sector. Depending on their place of residence, patients may have to travel long distances to access dialysis services.

Comorbidities are common among CKD patients. Hospitalized patients had +2 comorbidities such as primary hypertension, type-II or type-I diabetes, other urinary tract disorders, heart failure & bacterial pneumonia.

1/ Un 🧶 sur cet #enfumage qu'est l'approche #OneHealth dans le contexte de la pandémie de #COVID19

Scientifiquement c'est léger et ça se résume à : "aimons nous tous entre êtres vivants"

Bref, faudrait rebaptiser ça #OneLove.

Qui serait contre ?

2/ En tant que #machin consensuel, cette niche a été repérée par des gens moins sympa que #BobMarley.

Un nid d'argent facile : pas besoin de justification scientifique poussée puisque l'intention est bonne.

Un des pontes du #OneHealth est @PeterDaszak.…
3/ Le cas de @PeterDaszak est très gratiné car tout en affichant son approche #OneLove/#OneHealth (surveillons la nature, tout ça), il semble être mêlé dans des expériences de gain de fonction en Chine... sur des coronavirus 🤐

Here's a hint: "On global comparisons, primary care antimicrobial prescribing in Australia continues to outstrip Canada and most European countries, with rates more than double those of benchmark countries such as The Netherlands....
Looking at the connections between these articles reminded me of this 2015 paper: #PLOSONE: Antimicrobial Resistance: The Major Contribution of Poor Governance and Corruption to This Growing ...…

With Australia focused on controlling multiple COVID-19 outbreaks in 2021, cast your mind back to Melbourne mid-2020. In 8 weeks between 14 June & 10 August, Victoria recorded 13,078 cases of COVID-19 with daily cases peaking at 686 on 5th August - almost all in Melbourne. 1/11 Image
In response: 1) ‘Stage 3’ restrictions - social venues shut, public gatherings barred, stay at home orders – were introduced in select areas on 1 July & across Melbourne on 8 July; 2) mandatory #masks introduced on 22 July; & 3) restrictions strengthened in early August. 2/11 Image
What evolved in Melbourne in 2020 represents one of the most successful public health responses to COVID-19 globally. By October daily case numbers were mostly in single figures & in November no new cases were detected. So what was the turning point for Melbourne? 3/11

So why engage in social media as an epidemiologist or public health professional?

It helps to build trust in science!
