🔴Action by XR Animal to demand a halt to all #FactoryFarms.
#Meat production needs to be reduced by 83% by 2050 in 🇧🇪 to reduce greenhouse gases by 58% and nitrogen emissions by 40%. This would reduce pressure on biodiversity by 76%. #RebelForLife #StopSpeciesism Image
...Proximity, violence and disease are the daily lot of the animals exploited in factory farms.
No-man's-lands where cruelty is a daily occurrence and where ethical and health scandals are constantly breaking out. #AnimalCruelty Image
...From the mad cows (1997) to eggs contaminated with Finopril (2017), via the dioxin crisis (1999) and the massacre of thousands of poultry due to the umpteenth re-emergence of avian flu, factory farms favour the proliferation of dangerous pathologies. #zoonoses Image

Draadje over wat ik met #aerosolen, #infectieziekte heb en #covid19. Ik heb mij sinds 2015 bezig gehouden met aerosolen en infectieziekte die via aerosolen worden overgedragen. Ik deel graag het eea over om jullie mee te nemen in de wetenschappelijke achtergrond en politiek.
Een aerosol is een verneveling van vloeistof die bestaat uit droplets en droplet nuclei. De laatste is zo klein dat ze diep de longen in kunnen dringen. Iedereen maakt aerosolen, en als er micro-organisme in zitten heet het een bio-aerosol Zie foto voor meer info (proefschrift). Image
Infectieziekte die leiden tot luchtweginfectie zijn meestal via spatten als aerosolen overdraagbaar. Spatten hebben reikwijdte van ongeveer 1.5m en aerosolen kunnen veel verder komen. Dit geldt voor alle micro-organismen met dit transmissieroute. Nothing new under the sun. Image

A #thread on our recent paper in @PLOSNTDs examining ecological #evidence-base for #DiseaseControl management practices for #KyasanurForestDisease #AcademicTwitter #Scicomm #OneHealth; paper led by @SarahBurthe from @MonkeyFever_ consortium
#Diseasecontrol strategies originate through endorsements by Governments/academia/authorities; they're often not field-tested robustly; even when they are, evidence is limited to one sector (cf. #OneHealth #Intersectoral approaches);
#publichealth approaches ought to be contextual & their effectiveness ought to be evaluated, yet strategies for disease control often spread through word of mouth and are sometimes untested;

NEXT UP: 3rd seed Chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes) vs. 14th seed White Winged Vampire Bat (Diaemus youngi). #2021MMM [bat photo via @inaturalist]
Once again, this primate/bat match-up is brought to you by myself & @alyb_batgirl. #DejaVu #2021MMM
Chimpanzees live in rainforest, woodland, & savannah habitats across equatorial Africa & are one of the most intensively studied primate species. They are very closely related to humans, sharing ~99% of our DNA. #2021MMM [map via @NGKids; illustration via anthroillustrated.com]

[1] Prévenir une prochaine pandémie en bloquant les #zoonoses

"Considérant que la pandémie de Covid-19 est d'origine zoonotique, comme 75 % des maladies émergentes, le Programme des Nations unies pour l'environnement (PNUE) et l'Institut international de recherche sur l'élevage
[2] ont publié en juillet 2020 un rapport incitant à prévenir un prochain épisode, en brisant la chaîne de transmission selon une approche One Health.
Le rapport liste 7 facteurs anthropiques concourant au développement d'une pandémie d'origine zoonotique.
[3] Parmi ceux-ci, la demande croissante de protéines d'origine animale, surtt en Asie, a entraîné en 50 ans une augmentation considérable des productions mondiales de viande (+260%), de lait (+90%) et d’œufs (+340%), avec pr conséquence leurs intensification et industrialisation

மீண்டும் சொல்கிறோம்:

சின்ன அம்மை,போலியோ போன்ற நோய்களை மனித சமூகம் வெற்றிகொண்டதற்கு இரண்டு முக்கியமான காரணங்கள் உள்ளன. முதல் காரணம்,அந்த நோய்கள் கிருமிகளால் மட்டுமே ஏற்பட்டன. சின்னம்மைக்கு காரணம் வரியோலா வைரஸ்,போலியோவிற்கு காரணம் போலிசாமியிலிட்டிஸ். இந்த இரண்டும் விலங்கிலிருந்து
மனிதர்களுக்கு தொற்றிய கிருமிகள் அல்ல.மற்றொரு காரணம், சுகாதாரத்தில் (Sanitation) ஏற்பட்ட முன்னேற்றங்கள்.ஆனால் எய்ட்ஸ், எபோலா,monkeypox,bovine tuberculosis, Lyme disease, West Nile fever, Marburg virus disease, rabies,hantavirus pulmonary syndrome, anthrax,Lassa fever,Rift Valley
fever,ocular larva migrans, scrub typhus,Bolivian hemorrhagic fever,Kyasanur forest disease,Nipah, கொரோனா போன்ற நோய்களுக்கு காரணமாக உள்ள கிருமிகள் விலங்குகளிடமிருந்து (Zoonoses) தொற்றியவை.பெருவாரியாக இவ்வகை நோய்கள் சூழல் சங்கிலியில் ஏற்பட்ட சீர்கேட்டால்/மாற்றங்களால் ஏற்பட்டவை.

"Les petits exploitants agricoles ont été évincés de l'industrie de l'élevage. À la recherche d'un nouveau moyen de gagner leur vie, certains se st tournés vers l'élevage d'espèces "sauvages"" #COVID19 #zoonoses
theguardian.com/world/2020/mar…
"Les aliments sauvages ont [alors] été formalisés en tant que secteur. (...) Les entreprises agricoles industrielles occupant de + en + de terres, [ils] ont été également repoussés géographiquement, + près des zones non cultivables. + près de la lisière de la forêt"
"La densité et la fréquence des contacts à cette première interface ont augmenté, et donc le risque de contagion."

Thread 1/n. #Covid19 has taught us that emerging infectious diseases of animal origin, #Zoonoses, are going to be one of the greatest global challenges, along with climate change. Tackling this requires strong interdisciplinary approaches #OneHealth thehindu.com/sci-tech/scien…
In this article, @PaulMridula and I showcase how India was a pioneer in OneHealth Science in the early 1960s to tackle Kyasanur Forest Disease. Read more about it here in this excellent piece by @NithyanandRao thewire.in/health/kyasanu…. @MonkeyFever_
Unfortunately, that model was not replicated widely, and our animal, public health and environmental health sectors went back to their individual silos. Breaking these silos is essential to tackling the threat of emerging zoonoses. The OneHealth framework needs to be replicated!
