Dangerous diseases found in the MIlk and Water

Posted by Dhruba Shrestha June 17, 2018 :
Experts say that the present outbreak of water-borne diseases is due to contamination in the drinking water being supplied to the general public. “Tests have revealed that 75 per cent of the water distributed in the valley is contaminated and unfit for drinking,” said Dr Mahendra Bahadur Bista, director of Epidemiology and Disease Control Division, addressing an interaction programme organised today. The problem of water-borne diseases has affected 4,000 people in 14 districts of the country with 27 reported deaths. The Teku Hospital has received around 2,000 patients, while Kanti Hospital has already treated 400 patients. There were 30 identified cases of cholera in Teku, of whom two were confirmed. While, the hospital has received 19 cases of jaundice. However, officials say no patient has died because of the diseases in the valley. Dr Kokila Shrestha, director of Teku Hospital, warned that the epidemic could escalate as the outbreak was usually reported in the months of June-July in the past years.

Guide of the month: January 2018

Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without the distance traveling can give you. We all have crazy schedules, work and a family to take care of, going away alone or with some friends can give you distance and perhaps even make you realize how important these people are for you. Like the saying says: we never know what we have until we lose it.

Another great benefit is the relaxation you get to do. It’s nice to live life to its fullest and enjoy a stress free time with yourself. Going on vacation lets us recharge our “batteries” by disconnecting us from our regular life. When we come back we feel invigorated and we are happy to be back in our day to day routine. It’s a very good stress remover that has a lot more to give than most people are willing to accept.

Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs, different ways of living is fantastic for the mind. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. When I travel I usually make it a point to try new food, some cultures don’t have fries in their diet and they are all skinny, others use spices to give taste and not oils or fats. Discovering different values and ways to get by in life is really interesting. You also need to visit exotic new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.
