What is Cholera General Information

Cholera is the infectious disease spread by strains of bacteria often refers to as vibrio cholera. The outbreak of this occurs mostly in the rural part of world and children are mostly affected. Cholera is account for thousands of death per year in the rural part of the world.

Mode of Infection

This is mainly caused due to consumption of the food and drinks contaminated with the Bacterium. Food contaminants in human feces, any uncooked seafood as cholera are found in planktons and shellfish. As plankton which is on the top of the marine food chain. This drastically increases the chance of infection by consuming marine creature.

Defecating in open place especially in the rural part of the world accelerate the process of contamination and the spread of cholera.

Cause of Death

The massive loss of body fluid in short period of time causes the misbalance in ion exchange in the body leading to dehydration. The loss of fluid and ions if not compensate ahead of time can lead to the death.


It is marked by distress in bowel movement leading to watery diarrhea that can last for more than one day. leg cramps, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea occurs simultaneously. The bacteria Vibrio cholera infect the intestine due to this several noisome effects are felt in the intestine.

The loss of the bodily fluid during cholera is massive which account for 10 to 20 liters. The prime cause of death is due to massive loss of bodily fluid in short period of time.

Diagnosis Method

It is diagnosis by the test of the stool sample. There are other diagnosis methods available but stool test is widely used.


There are oral vaccines available for cholera of which three vaccines are WHO approved.


The treatment process focuses on rehydration of salts in the body. This can be achieved by the oral intake of the salts. In the severe cases where the oral intake of ions seems impossible intravenous treatment is often done.

Normally antibiotics are not essential for the treatment. The best treatment is compensation of ion by intake of salt solution. There is some cause that requires antibiotics. Antibiotics are often administrating to kill the bacterium by the health practitioner.

There is the need of treatment as soon as possible in cholera occurrence as there is always the chance of mortality within hours.

Infected children should be breastfed at regular interval to compensate the fluid loss in the body.

Father of Communism Karl Marx or Charles Darwin

Communism is the ideology developed by German philosopher and sociologist coined Karl Marx in 1940s. According to the communist ideology, common ownership of good are stressed. Although the root of this tenets dates back to a long time back.
This ideology predicts that property should be handled by the government and need to abolish the private property. Establishing the law and order followed by equality can make the economy of country prosperous.
Communism theory was based on the book by Charles Darwin named origin of species. The book predicts that human beings are the animals and are the by-product of long-term evolution over the thousands of years. Due to this, I will like to call Charles Darwin as the father of communism.

The first application of the communism was done in French where the priests from the church are brutally put to death. It was the unsuccessful revelation. Later Vladimir Lenin from Russia makes the modification in this tenet and did the successful revelation. …

Any Facebook and Mobile number of Aghori Baba is almost all the potential traps.
The origin of Aghori Sects seems hazy. The scent of evidence suggests that a recluse of medieval Kashmir might have inducted this sect. Due to the varied of s…

Metallic Hydrogen: Superconductor Discovery and Skeptics

Hydrogen is the first element of Group 1 of the periodic table and is abundant in nature. They have one proton and one elector. Freezing at 253-degree centigrade hydrogen become liquid and is widely used in Rocket fuel. Under normal atmospheric pressure hydrogen atom pair up to form the hydrogen molecule. The metallic property of the hydrogen is displayed when it loses the electron.
First Hypothesis on Metallic Hydrogen
The scientist named Eugene Wigner and Hillard Bell Huntington, the Princeton physicist hypothesized that massive pressure on the hydrogen turns it into the metal. This was hypothesized in the year 1935 (1). Until now there has not been any successful experiment to test this hypothesis.

Metallic Hydrogen Discovery
The Post-doctorate researcher Dr. Silvera and Ranga P. Dias has published the finding of metallic hydrogen in Journal science. The published journal claims that they have made metallic hydrogen by applying 495 Gigapascals pressure at the temperature -268-degr…
