• From which animal is killed the most people
Selahofobiya - a panicky fear of sharks. Leontofobiya - fear of lions. Ursofobiya - fear of bears. There is even likantrofobiya - a strong fear of the wolf, which is often present in humans, has never met them in person. However, none of these animals is not even close so dangerous for people, how is that being whom we see regularly, and even more - we hear.
Most people imagine "smerst from the bite of an animal" as the broken parts of the body, after the aggressive wild animal cunningly attacked somewhere in the forest or in the ocean. However daunting facts: in fact, the most deadly for human beings is the most common mosquito. They are more than a hundred species, so that almost everywhere where there is a land, you can find these buzzing creatures. The exception is perhaps that the most remote islands and lands covered with ice and snow, like the Antarctic and Greenland.
According to the World Health Organization, every day more than 725,000 people die as a result of a mosquito bite around the world. The whole "trick" is certainly not super-effective poison and not in huge sharp teeth, and in those diseases that are spread by mosquitoes. The most common disease that is transmitted in this way, it is malaria, dengue fever, yellow fever and encephalitis. And among the most dangerous of the list it is, of course, malaria, which, as history shows, is able to kill more than 600,000 people a year.
There are several reasons due to which mosquitoes have become such effective killers. First, they are easy to adapt to environmental conditions. As mentioned above, they can be found almost everywhere, where a person lives. Suffice it accidentally bring only the female mosquito in an area where previously there was no mosquitoes - and it's done - soon there will be thousands of them. This is the second reason - mosquitoes breed very quickly. Mosquitoes only need a few drops of water, and even the youngest of the females can lay 50 to 500 eggs.
radical and super-effective method of mosquito bites there. They are often poisoned with insecticide, often focusing on the large standing waters. However, the mosquitoes to breed enough or small puddles of water in the drainage system, so getting rid of these creatures a person definitely will not work. The only thing that people can do in such situations - to adapt. If possible, do not go to places where there is a probability of infection of disease through the bite of a mosquito. Be vaccinated. Use repellents.
Although, to be honest, even if you live far from the centers of infectious diseases, the human is unlikely that it will save from the second danger of being - the man himself. According to statistics, more than 475,000 people die every year due to the fault of another person. Completing the top five dangerous animals snakes, dogs, and tsetse flies.
As for the lions and sharks? According to statistics, every year, elephants and lions kill about 100 people, and by the teeth of wolves and sharks are killed on average 10 people. Even the hippopotamus, and he kills more (more than 500 people per year), although this is, to be honest, rather dubious achievement. So looking at these figures, it becomes clear that likantrofobiya and leontofobiya - a rather such irrational fears. While phobia for mosquitoes in humans, even the name of the individual is not present.
