Hello Jeff -
I sent you the map that shows deadly kissing bugs have colonized half
of the Continental US already. This is not due to global warming
it is due to illegals coming to the US with Chagas infection and infecting
the US kissing bugs. Every now and then I am sure some of the bugs hitch
a ride in bags and luggage carried by illegals entering the US.
They drop off or out of the bags and take a blood meael at night.
This is why we have locally occurring Chagas in the US.
Close the borders before more infected people enter the US. I am afraid
if Hillary gets in that she will open the borders and in the tradition
of Germany's Merkel, she will say, come on in, welfare and medical for
everyone. I shudder to think what other diseases will be walking
across the borders. They will walk in, fly in, come by boat
and some from Latin America will come by bus. The US will have a
myriad of third world people bringing third world diseases. As our
infrastructure crumbles and health care becomes slow and overburdened
these diseases will spread widely. I foresee Cholera, Polio, Typhoid,
a massive number of Chagas cases, Diphtheria, Whooping Cough and so many
other diseases like TB and resistant Syphilis and Gonorrhea on the rise.
We were able to end Polio by improving sanitation and ensuring clean drinking
water for the Country. With all of the resources going to illegals thee
will be nothing left for projects like sanitation, drinking water, and
all sorts of projects to keep infrastructure solid. This means will
could end up living in the third world and getting infected with third
The US does not need illegals as they do not work, for the most part,
any way. Most come for welfare, medical care and food stamps, housing,
and even cars. All free but at what cost. There just won't
be enough money for projects we depended upon to keep our nation disease
We cannot afford open borders.
CDC: ‘Kissing Bug’ Seen In California, May Carry Parasite Causing Deadly
November 24, 2015 7:47 AM
SACRAMENTO (CBS) A bug known as the “kissing bug” that has the potential
of spreading a deadly disease has been spotted in California, according
to the CDC.
The bug’s official name is the triatomine bug and can carry a parasite
called Trypanosoma cruzi, which causes Chagas disease.
ou can catch the disease from the bug, but it’s not easy, the CDC says.
The parasite that causes the disease is in the bug’s feces, which it leaves
on or near a person when it’s feeding on the person’s blood typically
when they’re asleep. Infection occurs when the person rubs the feces into
the bite or wound, or their mouth or eyes.
But much like mosquitoes and West Nile, not every kissing bug carries
Chagas disease, sometimes called the “silent killer.”
The bugs are a Latin American import, but they’re in 27 states, especially
those in the South.
Also called assassin bugs, cone-nosed bugs, and blood suckers, the bugs
can live indoors, in cracks and holes of substandard housing, or in a
variety of outdoor settings including:
Between rocky structures
In rock, wood, brush piles, or beneath bark
In rodent nests or animal burrows
In outdoor dog houses or kennels
In chicken coops or houses
Researchers at Texas A &M in College of Veterinary and Biomedical
Sciences are tracking the bug because it bites humans and animals. There
aren’t any vaccines for Chagas disease and only an experimental treatment
“If people see or come in contact, don’t touch the bug with your hands.
Take a picture and send the bug to the laboratory. We can test it for
infection,” said researcher Sarah Hamer.
