- Cholera - 595 words
Cholera Cholera is an infectious intestinal disease common in Southern Asia. Cholera is caused by a comma-shaped bacterium called Vibrio Choleras. The microorganism is transmitted by water or food that has been contaminated with the feces of people who have the disease. Cholera occurs when Vibrio Cholera enters the intestines and releases Cholera toxin. The toxin causes the intestine to secrete large amounts of water and salt. Because the intestine cannot absorb the water and salt at the rate they are secreted, the patient suffers severe diarrhea. This loss of fluid causes severe dehydration and changes in the body chemistry. If untreated, the illness can lead to shock and eventually death. ...

This is when a group of a local community members protest about developments or a certain development in their community.

- Gender Issues In Sri Lanka - 1,199 words

- Politics A Moral Quandary - 1,172 words
Politics - A Moral Quandary Ever since I have use of my memory, I do not like politics and the voting process at all.

There are many reasons for me to dislike politics, but certain reasons have the strongest influence on my opinion. Firstly, once candidates are ele ...
