could get out to general public and be a quite an issur and there isnothign we can do 67
This ties in when we talk about infectious dieseas, and antibiotics came out in the 1950s

1. Greater connection as result of communication we get farther and get into contact with
people we couldnt have before
2. The idea of richer get richer and global market some people benefit from it and some
people don't, greater number of the population is living as 1 dollar a day.
3. That govt are pulling back on govt funding, or that we run our public services like we
run our privater services, in terms of city council and greater turn on market, reduction in
social services that can support health, and in terms of nourishment and poverty, and are
4. Having a housing subsidized, a safer, housing, you actually have heat, if those cuts are
made, and then you are going to live at a worse place.
5. We have to think about all the other issues and policits that can also help health in long
term as well
Globalizatoin and diesease:
1. It led to greater connectidness and allows, and you have new interactions with people
you havent met and new interaction with others, you have to get new vacicnes, just
because your not born in that area, drink bottle water, and not local water because the
things in the water can make you sick because your body is not used to it.
2. You can travel, and you can
3. The incubation is longer than sars, and it took you longer than you can fly, and you got
sysmtoms after a while,
4. We have more population living in slamps, libign a dollar a day, or having bad water,

\you have three proned globalizaiotn definition and 3 infectoius definition
Newly emerging diesease:
1. Ebola is mainly in zaire 2. Lyme diesease: in the us 1970 and is named after a town, it is a diesease of
globalization and advancemetn, that greater connection, and it has been increasing, and as
we move closer and closer, deer are linked with that, and as we moved further and further
into the rurla areas we are gettinginto connet with these animlas.
3. Turberculosis: we are seeing new drug resistnace forms of tubercolosis.
Hollywood and dieseas:
1. Outbreak consider the differenes between it.
2. In one poplationa and it spread to, in outbreaak we are foucuing on a village, and it will
spread, and it doesnt go away like te contagion does, and not much quicker.
3. The ftist movie in outbreak we know what we were dealkng with , and in contagiojn it
was an extreme we are trying to figure it out,
4. Thanksgiving, linking it to waht we talk about, we dont see that in the outbreak the
contagion she was on a buisness trip and she picks it up and brings it home. The
international travel, so thanks giving, black frifsy, she wasnt one, it was in london,
because of globalizaiton adn it can just spread, becuse you have so many people, quicker
5. In terms of geogrpahy of blame, the diffeerence where it was focused, the outbreak was
focus in afica, and when we talk about hiv and this was the stereotyope that was going on.
And in contagion we are looking at contagion. They were saying it was borne in water,
but it was done throught monkey, there water systerm and it caused the entire village to
die, it was inequality, the poverty in vilage, the contagion it takes 4 days, and in the
village diying in 2 to 3 days, and the lady went ot the hospital in contagion but in
outbreak no access.
6. The cbc gets into the village but majority of peopel have dies. Because of globalizatoin
we really dont see, and
7. Sanitataion and health hygiene, adn the pig farming, and different industry pracitses
that have allowed.
8. The public attention will
1. Focuses on the realtionship between peopel and how it links to the diesease, and he
wants to counteract, and these war type analogy, and something coming out the blue, the
diesease that we see, adn are correlated, and we have to recognize and this is done to us
that we have no control.And so it is our actoin that is creating these diesease and it is not
that they are coming out, and he does this by looking at 4 time periods
2. The 5000-10000: people just settle down, and share these resoures and we see the
practise of domestication and keeping animals and farming and in this period and that
changes our behavouir and we are no longer moving from the envirmnet we are staying
3. So sanitation and waste doesn't go to, and we have animals living with peopel and they
don't have a farm separate per say, and being closer together. So tb, leprosy, typoid is a
water related diseases, and some illness can transfer and this is time we start to see they
1. The connections between the socity, we dont migrate much, most peopel will liive and die at the same place, and they debelp on theri own and in these regions and the diesease
that other people might not have seen and coming in contact with war and previously we
