Eternity Life Clinics - Food safety tips for climate changing era

Climate changes, which have been taking place on our planet over the past decades at a rapid pace, is one of the most influential risks that determine worldwide expansion of mankind. Climate system’s changing poses serious threats and modifications to the sustainable progress of society, caused by increased risks to human health and life, natural ecosystems, and economic sectors. This requires detailed investigation and implementation of adaptation measures.

What may this lead to

As Center for Public Health (CPH) writes on its official Facebook page, climate changes affect not only meteorological manifestations, but also social and environmental health factors: clean air, safe drinking water, sufficient food, etc. Use of poor-quality water leads to emergence of infectious ailments: cholera, dysentery, salmonellosis, etc., and even non-infectious ones: diseases of digestive system, cardio, etc. With temperature growing, better conditions are created for the growth of bacterial flora in food.

Many types of foodborne infections are at their peak during the warmer months. Cyclospora – one of the microorganisms that lead to the development of intestinal infections – is activated in its action in early June. Parasite is passed through polluted water, meal, fruits, etc. Campylobacter – one of the most common roots of diarrhea – also begins to show its activity in June. These infections lead to stomach upset, in some cases causing severe diarrhea, vomiting and longer-term illnesses such as meningitis, etc.

Thus, it’s possible to observe the relationship between an increase in ambient temperature and the development of certain infections that progress precisely in such conditions. In the summer months, the rate of outbreaks doubles or even triples compared to other months.

Who is at the greatest risk?

Climate changes will affect all people. Particularly defenseless are people living in small developing countries, island nations, and mountainous and polar places.

Children, especially those in poor states, as well as elderly and those with illness or impairment, are most attackable to climate change’s influence. Already now, to protect health from climate changing, it is necessary:

  • fight insect-borne diseases;
  • provide the population with clean water and proper sanitation;
  • reduce dependence on energy sources polluting environment and are harmful to health.

To reduce the severity of foodborne diseases, the recommended basic principles should be taken into account: the focus of interventions, their preventive nature, capacity building in fundamental areas, uniting efforts and stimulating private investment. It should be noted that food production can cause disease in humans through mechanisms unrelated to the direct intake of pathogens through food consumption.

We are in social networks

  • The goal that we have set for ourselves is the acquisition by the human body of the ability to remain young and healthy as long as possible – practically, the acquisition of immortality by a person.

    A young man at 100 years of age? Why not? And this is just the tip of the iceberg of our plans.

  • The main and most global goal of the project is to gain immortality. However, to achieve this goal, there is a lot of work to be done: from introducing the latest developments in medical practice, which already now can significantly improve health and prolong life, to conducting scientific research that will help achieve our global goal.

  • A fund or a company interested in investing in our project can contact us via the contact form to clarify all the details. The main condition is the sharing of project values ​​and the desire to change the world for the better together with us.

    In addition, we plan to issue our own token, by purchasing which you will also be able to invest in the project.

  • Since we create the ELC project from scratch and fully cover all our activities in social networks, you can learn about all promotions and developments from our official pages and website. One of the first public results will be the presentation of the project at the Eternity Life Forum, where we will present our project, with its ideas and developments.
