    US TRAVEL WARNING: 250% RISE IN DISEASES FROM MOSQUITOES, FLEAS AND TICKS IN 13 YEARS, SAYS REPORT

    British visitors to the US face an increased range of health hazards from mosquitoes, fleas and ticks, with a 250 per cent increase in diseases in 13 years.

    A new report from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in Atlanta warns of “a rising threat from emerging vector-borne diseases”. The team of researchers, led by Dr Ronald Rosenberg, studied more than 640,000 cases between 2004 and 2016. They concluded: “Mosquito-borne disease epidemics happen more frequently.”

    They speak in bulletpointese leftist nutjob drivel. It doesn't matter. Nothing is as great a motivator as the chance to truly be free.

    Seriously. There's got to be a way to devise a genetic time-bomb in those little buggers. And while we're at it, can we get rid of poison oak, please?

    They've actually been trying to creat mosquitoes that don't carry the bad pathogens and are trying to outbreed to old ones...

    Anyone else expect super mosquitoes as a direct result or is it just me?
