Mosquitoes Defeated in Cuba Trial with Nuclear Technique

A pilot sterile insect technique campaign in a Havana neighbourhood has reduced mosquito numbers by up to 90%, and early reports indicate that cases of mosquito-borne diseases were completely eliminated in the last two months of the trial.

The sterile insect technique is used to control Tsetse flies in Zimbabwe.

This nuclear Technique has been used in Zimbabwe by the ministry of Lands, Agriculture, Water and fisheries to control Tsetse fly population in the Zambezi Valley.

This has successfully reduced the Tsetse fly population without harming other insects.

In Cuba, like in most tropical countries, dengue is a growing problem. Transmitted by mosquitoes, this viral infection causes high fever, muscle and joint pains, skin rashes, and, in the most severe cases, death.

Did you know that all food has some natural #radionuclides in it?

These are transferred from the soil to the crops on land and from water to fish in rivers, lakes, and the sea.

Radiation Protection Authority Of Zimbabwe has a Laboratory that conducts tests to determine acceptable levels of natural radioactivity in food and water.

The tests are done to ensure both water and food for human consumption is safe from #radiation.
