Re: Health Tip from Spacifico - Dengue

Global warming is probably responsible for the increase in Dengue-carrying mosquitos, even now in temperate areas:

"Dengue fever is now considered the most serious viral infection transmitted in man by insects, whether measured in terms of the number of human infections or the number of deaths."

Some Mexicans you talk to here in La Manz say that the increase in dengue is because of the relative lack of rainfall this year. Could this be true? Will this Dec 1st rainfall we just had help the problem?
