In this new addition to the Diseases and Disorders series, author Diane Yancey discusses how cholera has made its mark as a devastating, though largely treatable, disease. Yancey begins with a discussion of past cholera outbreaks and epidemics, and how doctors and researchers struggled for centuries to identify the disease and its causes. She then focuses on the need for improved sanitation systems and access to clean water in developing countries in order to curb this international killer, and emphasizes the importance of vigilance and accessible treatment options during natural disasters. The book ends with a look to the future, and how individuals, governments, and international organizations are hoping to eradicate this illness.
