New government research shows that fasting diseases such as Lyme disease continue to increase. The report from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention measures noted that in 2017, state and local health departments reported a record number of diseases spread by ticks.

Fall of Lyme disease, Powassan virus ; Spotted fever rickettsiosis, including Rocky Mountain spotted fever anaplasmos, ehrlichiosis, babesios and tularemi increased all last year. CDC said there were 59,349 confirmed cases of chewed diseases 201

7, rising from 48,610 years in 2016. In recent years, health officials have confirmed that likely numbers of cases are likely to be many times higher than officially spoken.

The findings reflect an accelerating trend of field-related diseases reported in the US Between 2004 and 2016, the number of cases doubled. Researchers also discovered seven new fast-paced pathogens that infect humans.

What is behind the increase?

Researchers say that the cause of excessive feces is unclear. However, a number of factors are likely to be at stake.

Following another CDC report published earlier this year, it was found that the number of diseases caused by mosquito, tick and flea bites has tripled in the United States over the last 13 years noted experts that host populations play an important role .

For example, an increase in deer populations in residential areas can also lead to an increase in deer fortifications, which can lead to more people being infected with Lyme disease and other infections. This has become a growing problem in many societies, as suburban development moves to former rural areas.

Researchers have also warned about the impact of climate change on spreading ticks and the diseases they carry to larger areas.

In a report from 2017 from the Medical Society Consortium on Climate and Health, an organization representing 500,000 clinical practitioners who aim to take action against climate change, Dr. Nitin Damle, chairman of the American College of Physicians and an intern in Wakefield, Rhode Island, said his practice has shown a significant increase in chewing diseases, including Lyme disease and other infections, over the past five years.

“The black bitches, the Lyme disease wearers, are enjoying warm weather, home to the state of Rhode Island, where the winters have become warmer and shorter, these small collections of sesame seeds have a great time to bite people and spread Lyme disease. The crossing season used to turn into summer, it now spans spring and autumn. This is not limited to the typical tick-hotspot states, he says.

How to Prevent Attached Diseases

Health Defenders Warn Because United States Is Not fully prepared to control the rising threat of field-related diseases. CDC says that better methods are needed to prevent fastening bites and to control the ticks and diseases they spread.

In the meantime, health experts recommend the following steps to help Protect yourself and your family from ticks :

  • Avoid wooded and boring areas with high grass s and leaf scrap; go into the middle of the groove.
  • Use defoamers containing 20-30 percent DEET on exposed skin and clothing for protection that may take up to several hours.
  • Use products containing permetrine to treat clothing and equipment, such as boots, pants, socks and tents.
  • Swim or shower as soon as possible after getting indoors (preferably within two hours) to wash away and easier to find ticks that creep on you.
  • Make a full-body tick using a handheld or full-length mirror to see all parts of your body upon return from field-infected areas.
  • Check out clothes, gear and pets for ticks.
