Description
 
Robert Desowitz. Many of the diseases we assume are exclusively tropical actually have frequently occurred in developed countries with temperate climates, such as the Ebola Virus in the U.S. & Malaria & Yellow Fever in Britain. Desowitz shows that human migrants have unknowingly carried dangerous pathogens around the world. Also examines the potentially catastrophic health problems facing the Third World, & weighs the risk that new ‘doomsday bugs’ will emerge & be transferred to the developed world. With temperatures, sea levels & pop’s. set to rise, he predicts that the virulent ‘hot strain’ diseases of the tropics will inch closer to our temperate climes.
