Wolfing Sustenance from Disturbed Wetlands

After the Super Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan), people of Tacloban City, Philippines have to survive and sustain human existence. In an ecosystem that was devastated from its original state, Taclobanons had to subsidize on the resources that was left. Wetlands as being the source of food yet could be a source of threat as the alteration of the quality of the waters due to accumulation of sediments after the deadly storm surge. Moreso, methods of preparation of the food could also be a pressing avenue for health hazards. Although cases of acute bloody diarrhea (ABD) in the region was variable, regional epidemiologists did not directly declared the source of septicity; may it be water or food contamination, the susceptibility of the Taclobanons towards diseases were still receptive.
