Good effort trying to be objective in this article. I would like to give a constructive feedback which could help in clearing things up.1. It is mentioned that planting trees in village common lands will have negative affects socially and ecologically. There is no need to even have to agree or disagree with it, because, you also mentioned the fact that Cauvery Calling aims to plant trees only in the private lands of the farmers. So, plantation in the common lands doesn’t come into the picture.2.I don’t see that the ecologists are totally against this project, but just they they have some concerns, mainly in terms of what species of trees will be planted. And because there was no direct communication between the ecologists and Isha Foundation, it was not possible for them to address the concerns. As you seem to have spoken with an Isha spokesperson, if you could connect the concerned parties, it would be great, because I see that the ecologists are genuinely interested in making sure things are done the right way.May we all come together and make things happen.Rare Amazon bush dogs caught on camera in BoliviaCarrot1 Feba very good iniciative to be fallowed by the ranchers all overSponsored 123456789101112131415161718192021222324252627282930313233343536 read more

Traditional Birth Assistants in Malawi

We should not completely stop them because their work is very important. We should train them to assist us in addressing the health challenges that we are facing.Expanding opportunities for non-physicians to act as skilled birth attendants may help to stem the tide of maternal deaths in countries where doctors, midwives and nurses may not exist in the needed numbers. Evidence suggests that having a skilled birth attendant present at birth leads to fewer incidences maternal and child mortality and morbidity. If TBAs are properly trained as Mutharika suggests, they may be able to play a major role in reducing Malawi’s high maternal mortality ratio.In January 2010, with the support of MHTF and UNFPA, the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars hosted a Maternal Health Policy Dialogue on “Human Resources for Maternal Health: Midwives, TBAs and Task-Shifting.” To view the webcast and read the event summary, click here.

Alerte salmonellose des fromages de chèvre pélardons rappelés

first_imgAlerte salmonellose : des fromages de chèvre “pélardons” rappelésDès le 10 août dernier, la société Mounier qui produit des fromages au lait de chèvre “Pélardon” rappelait plusieurs lots en raison d’une suspicion de contamination à la salmonelle. Les ministères de l’Agriculture et de la Santé viennent d’élargir le rappel à davantage de produits. Maxisciences vous explique les raisons de cette décision sanitaire. Près d’un an après la crise médiatico-sanitaire qui a touché Lactalis, le mot « salmonellose » a le don de nous faire peur mais surtout de faire désormais réagir assez rapidement les entreprises et les autorités sanitaires. La preuve avec le rappel de plusieurs lots de produits Pélardon, fabriqués par la société Mounier, située à Quézac en Lozère.Un rappel de produits élargi Le 10 août dernier la société Mounier procédait au rappel sur l’ensemble du territoire, dans les commerces de détail et sur les marchés locaux de certains lots de Pélardon, mis en vente depuis le 21 juillet. Fabriqués avec du lait cru de chèvre conformément aux normes de l’AOP, ces fromages présentaient un risque de contamination à la bactérie salmonelle. Cette semaine et suite à la découverte d’une vingtaine de cas de salmonellose humaine après avoir consommé ces petits fromages, les ministères de l’Agriculture et de l’Alimentation ainsi que celui de la Santé ont décidé d’étendre ce rappel à tous les lots de fromages de cette variété que produit la société lozérienne. « Les investigations menées par les autorités sanitaires ont permis de mettre en évidence plusieurs cas de salmonelloses humaines en lien avéré avec la consommation de fromages « Pélardon » produits par l’entreprise Mounier. À ce jour, une vingtaine de cas a été recensée. Toutes les personnes concernées vont bien », précise le communiqué. Ainsi sont concernés les produits qui présentent les caractéristiques suivants : – Fromage AOP Pélardon fermier 60g Earl Mounier Thierry – Numéro d’agrément de l’établissement producteur : FR 48.122.011 CE – Numéros de lot : tous les lots compris entre le 24/06/2018 et le 29/07/2018 – DLC ou DLUO : toutes les DLC comprises entre le 24/08/2018 et le 29/09/2018 Les possesseurs de ces lots sont invités à ne surtout pas les consommer mais à les détruire ou à les rapporter là où ils ont été achetésC’est quoi une salmonellose ? À lire aussiDengue : symptômes, traitement, prévention, où en est-on ? Cette infection alimentaire causée par l’ingestion de salmonelles, des bactéries très puissantes dont il existe deux espèces mais plus de 2.500 espèces, touche 180.000 personnes par an, selon une étude de Santé Publique France, de janvier 2018. Elle serait responsable de 16% des décès suite à une infection alimentaire, en France. Les premiers symptômes qui ressemblent à ceux d’une gastro-entérite apparaissent au bout de 48 heures de l’ingestion d’un aliment contaminé. Fièvre, diarrhées, vomissements et douleurs au ventre sont alors au rendez-vous. Les jeunes enfants et les nourrissons, les personnes immunodéprimées et les personnes âgées y sont particulièrement vulnérables. Il convient alors de beaucoup s’hydrater afin de compenser la perte de fluides et de consommer des aliments salés. Des antibiotiques peuvent s’avérer efficaces en cas de forte fièvre.  Le 28 août 2018 à 12:25 • Marina Marcoutlast_img read more
