Cholera is on the Rise--Outbreaks in Cuba~Southern Somalia~Phillipines Update 7/18/12
A youtube video was sent to my email today called "BASEBALL IN THE TIME OF CHOLERA".

"Baseball in The Time of Cholera is a powerful insight into the tragedy and scandal of Haiti's Cholera epidemic through the eyes of a young baseball player."

Watching it brought smiles and much sadness to me.

It's main purpose is to bring awareness to the devastating cholera outbreak in Haiti in 2010 and part of the story is told through a delightful young man who loves baseball.

I'll post the link but, as I said, it can be a heart-wrencher:

After watching the video, I decided to see where cholera is a problem.

This is what I found:

Cuban cholera outbreak widens, reported cases hits 158

The Cuban government broke 11 days of silence Saturday on the country’s first cholera outbreak in 130 years, noting the number of cases has risen to 158, though no new deaths were reported.

The Health Ministry denied there had been a “spread” of cholera on the Communist-ruled island, blaming the incidents outside the affected town of Manzanillo on “isolated cases,” that would be “treated and studied promptly.”

“This outbreak is not spreading,” it said in a statement, the second on the outbreak since July 3.

While the authorities had kept their silence on cholera, anti-Castro websites based in Miami and some international media published reports about the spread of the disease, saying there had been numerous deaths.

Then I found this one:


WHO: Cholera Rising in Southern Somalia


LONDON -- The World Health Organization said Friday that cholera is on the rise in Kismayo, an al-Shabab-held town in southern Somalia.

At one Kismayo health facility, WHO officials say a rapid test found that six-in-10 patients had cholera, 65 of whom have since been treated.

"It's a worrying sign so far, we will have to see what happens now in the next couple of days," says WHO spokesperson Pieter Desloovere. "But it may be an alert that something more is happening on the ground."

The WHO says Kismayo General Hospital has reported around 650 suspected cholera cases since the beginning of this year, with 40 cases reported weekly since May.

And then this:


DOH: Cholera in Bicol reaches epidemic level


LEGAZPI CITY—An alert status was raised in Bicol following a sharp rise in the incidence of cases and in the number of deaths due to cholera from January to July this year compared with the same period last year, which health authorities said have reached “epidemic levels.”

Dr. Nestor Santiago, director of the Department of Health (DOH) in Bicol, said in an e-mailed report on Friday that data gathered by the DOH Epidemiology Surveillance Unit from various government and private hospitals in the region showed 30 deaths and 3,158 persons sick of cholera from January to July this year.

He said the number represented a 610-percent increase compared with the same period last year when there were only 445 cases recorded in the six provinces and four deaths in Albay and one in Sorsogon.

“Alarmed by the surging incidence of cholera cases, health authorities declared an epidemic,” Santiago said. He said cholera is due to bacteria caused by eating dirty food and drinking contaminated water.

As a Christian, my first thought is to pray--for those affected with this disease and that this medical condition is brought under control.

I would ask that others please do the same.

The other concern is for those who travel.

If you plan to visit any of these countries, the CDC lists a number of measures on their website to help reduce the risk of getting sick.

Florida Department of Health Monitoring Cuba Cholera Outbreak


The Florida Department of Health says the potential for the spread of cholera is extremely low
despite the recent reports of an outbreak of the infection in Cuba.

“Regardless of the attempts by the Castro regime to ignore the cholera outbreak, there is no denying that cholera is spreading throughout Cuba.
This is a serious health problem for Cubans, but also for the U.S. because of the heavy stream of travelers between both nations.
The Cuban regime, unlike other countries with cholera cases, is secretive, deceitful and uncooperative with international health officials," said Ros-Lehtinen,
who also asked OFAC to notify everyone who holds a Cuba travel license about the cholera outbreak.
"The State Department has a responsibility to warn U.S. travelers about the danger to nations with an outbreak such as cholera
and I expect them to do so."

Here is another:

UNICEF: Cholera Outbreak in the Sahel is Only Beginning

UNICEF released a statement this week warning of the fast-growing cholera outbreak in the Sahel region of west and central Africa.
So far this year, 29,000 people have been infected and 700 killed by cholera in this region alone.
With the rainy season approaching, the rate of infection is expected to increase even faster in the next few months.

Experts believe that poor sanitation and overcrowding are responsible for cholera build-up in rivers.
Transmission then occurs through contact with fish contaminated with the bacteria, which accumulate under the scales.
Because women and children in the region are often responsible for cleaning fish, they are at greater risk of infection.

What is Cholera?

Cholera is a serious infectious disease caused by the bacteria Vibrio cholerae, which affects the intestinal system of the body.
An infected person experiences severe vomiting, explosive diarrhea and severe dehydration.
Without immediate medical treatment, cholera may result in death within four to twelve hours after symptoms begin.

Cholera is very contagious. It is spread by the unintentional consumption of infected feces that contaminate food and water.
It can also be spread through human to human contact. Some people have been infected with cholera by eating raw or undercooked shellfish.

Most info sources on Cholera point to unsanitary conditions and contaminated water as the cause of its infection and spread.

There are many ways to get this disease, although some ways do dominate.

Human carriers, marine life, animal carriers, insects and dead bodies are other sources.

The following link is the most informative of all I've seen in regards to this disease--check it out:

Is it possible a cholera scenario could be in our nation’s future?

I think of that book I read a couple of years ago, "One Second After". I'm sure many of you have read it.

It's fiction but is based on hard facts. It is a chilling tale about an unexpected electromagnetic pulse attack on the United States. major solar storms, known as coronal mass ejections.

The following taken from Wikipedia:

The book's premise sets the stage for a series of "die-offs". The first takes place within a week (those in hospitals and assisted living).
After about 15 days, salmonella-induced Typhoid fever and cholera set in from eating tainted food,
drinking tainted water, and generally poor sanitation.
Americans have lived in an environment of easy hygiene, sterilization, and antibiotics, making them prime targets for third-world diseases.
The lack of bathing and poor diet will lead to rampant feminine hygiene infections; deep cuts, rusty nail punctures,
and dog bites go untreated with antibiotics, tetanus shots, or rabies treatment as more die from common infections.



With the increase of the sun's solar storms--coronal mass ejections--there has been talk about a major power outage.
There was a power outage in Quebec in 1989, caused by a solar storm.

Is it possible that it could happen in the US?

Grapefruit seed extract has many health benefits--good stuff!

I use to give it to my son to fight off an over growth of yeast in his system.

The use of lemon is mentioned in many articles as a natural remedy for treating Cholera--

Lemon: The foremost among the many home remedies for cholera is the use of lemon.
The juice of this fruit can kill cholera bacilli within a very short time.
It is also very effective and reliable preventive against cholera during an epidemic.
It can be taken in the form of a sweetened or salted beverage for this purpose.
Taking of lemon with food as a daily routine can also prevent cholera.

Red bayberry extract inhibits growth and virulence gene expression of the human pathogen Vibrio cholerae

"In this study, we investigated the molecular mechanism behind bayberry treatment of cholera described in ancient Chinese medicine. We found that an extract derived from a simple and rapid extraction of bayberry fruits could repress V. cholerae virulence gene expression at low concentrations and inhibit V. cholerae growth at high concentrations. Intriguingly, this bayberry extract did not inhibit or kill many non-pathogenic bacteria tested, including Escherichia coli and Bacillus subtilis (data not shown). The narrow-spectrum bactericidal activity of the bayberry extract may thus preserve normal intestinal flora during treatment."
