Visit the World Health Organization web site. Look up the current status of Ebola and Leishmaniasis, and compare them to a disease (of your choice) that occurs closer to where you live (consult Figure 8.6 in your text for information).
What organisms cause the three diseases? What is their current distribution and prevalence? What environmental (think of natural environment, not their home environment) and social factors (that affect the environment) contribute to their spread? Does any treatment exist for the diseases?
With the above information in mind, write a short essay of at least 1 page discussing pros and cons of this EPA policy. Be sure to keep in mind things like environmental impacts but also issues relating to social impacts due to higher electrical prices.
