i dont know any animal disease.can you tell me some?
I saw the tail end of a Nature show about how honeybees are dying off due to CCD, and they found some virus but they’re not sure that’s the only cause of honeybees dying off around the world. Does anybody know of any groups specifically working on this, petitions, legislation, etc.?
I really love bees and 1/3 of the food we eat is pollinated by bees and they said if current rates of die-off continue, there will be no honeybees in the US by 2035.
Anybody know of good ways to get involved w/ this cause? Groups? Activists? Congress members to pester?

First off, I’d REALLY like to know if ANYONE knows any disease or disorder related to these symptoms. I’m very very sensitive to pretty much everything, I have chest issues, as in coughing. I get irritated by dust, pollen, any kind of smoke, cleaners, any kind of sprays, perfumes, (not all) even when I fold my laundry like just normal fibers that come off things and float in the air! Its insane, and I’ve been dealing with it since about 13 years old, I’m 17 now. I’m not really sure if it’s just bad allergies or something worse, I have been to the doctor but it’s been years since I went back about this issue, or went to a specialist, I really want to go to a specialist but it’s expensive and hard to plan because we have a travel a bit, and our insurance has been a huge pain in the butt, we just switched (yay!) lol The doctor told me I had a Mild form of asthma, Or rhinosinusitis. and gave me allergy meds, like Zyrtec which I suppose helped a bit, but only for a little while. I feel like I’m all alone with this issue, I don’t know anyone who has the same problems and sensitivity and it’s just really discouraging, I can’t do certain things or go certain places because I get so irritated, funny thing is I usually have to cough on my own to get it out, I don’t cough by reflex I have to cough it out on purpose, once I start coughing it all builds up and I sound like I have chronic bronchitis all the time, it’s in the upper respiratory tract right below my throat, sometimes if I do something or go somewhere and get really irritated the cough sounds just horrible like I’m really ill or something and I get the taste of blood, it then somewhat soon calms down and I’m better, but I’m constantly dealing with this, and I just don’t know what to do anymore!
Thanks for reading! Please let me know if you have similar or the same

An estimated 11,000 bats have died in the New York, Vermont area this winter, dying from a disease that is puzzling scientists. The dead bats have a fungus-like white ring around their mouths. It is thought the bats may be suffering from a virus or from effects of pollution. They have asked the public to stay out of bat caves, if going into bat caves is your form of recreation, so as not to spread the problem around.
We have had the Bird Flu scare, which so far as not resulted in an epidemic of disease. We have also been stymied by a virus attacking our honey bees, which are disappearing from our land. Like honey bees, bats are crucial for agriculture in the world. Bats eat insects that destroy crops and their loss could mean trouble for farmers. My question is, what do you think could cause our birds, bees and bats to be endangered? Are these viruses coming from foreign lands? Or could these illnesses be caused by dangerous chemicals affecting our atmosphere?
