Nature alteration and epidemics

I recently read a good article about the impact from the devastation of nature to emerging diseases.

Researchers compared data from international institutions such as the World Health Organization, the World Bank, the Food and Agriculture Organization and the Gideon epidemic database.

It was very clear that there was a link between the original land use change and the virus and other infectious diseases.

It is also suggested that suggests that epidemics will increase as biodiversity decreases.

These studies do not take into account only deforestation but the reallocation of land such as agriculture, artificial plantations, animal husbandry, real estate projects, extraction of raw materials, etc. The disruption of ecosystems would result in the transmission of viruses.

Sadly this finding didn’t have the expected impact on our leaders because the data on climate change was not included.

It’s ok to not be ok

I don’t know you but I’m sick of all.

I’m bored to ear about covid and vax, about argument between vaccinated and no vaccinated people and their rights or not.

I’m sad to can’t travel, go to the restaurant, not see people I want, not do social activities. Even if I’m not a really social people and loooove stay comfy at home almost all the time.

I’m exhausted to altern between lockdown, semi-lockdown, hope that the life is going to come back as a normal way, more restrictions again.

And I’m particulary angrry against animals abuse and nature degradation, about the fact people don’t take care of our beautiful planet, the only place where we can stay alive. Climate change is a reality and animals suffering too, but it’s always behind the « covid priority ».

And mental health! Can we talk about mental health? It’s not neither a priority face to covid. I’m worried about mine and about world mental health, we are all going to turn mad. I am more and more depressed and negative from day to day, I don’t want anything anymore.

Sorry for this not happy post. Just wanted to say you that if you need love or to talk I’m here for you. No jugement.

See you soon
