This connection, decades before the germ theory of disease would be hypothesized and proven, was the first step to understanding that water contaminated with human sewage could harbor microorganisms that threaten public health. Since then, epidemiology has been the major scientific discipline used to study the transmission of infectious diseases through water NRC, a.

Illness after recreational water activities can be caused by a variety of agents, including bacteria, viruses, parasites, algae, and even chlorine gas. These illnesses are more common in summer.

Понадобятся лучшие алгоритмы, чтобы противостоять компьютерам завтрашнего дня. - Такова Цифровая крепость. - Конечно. Алгоритм, не подающийся грубой силе, никогда не устареет, какими бы мощными ни стали компьютеры, взламывающие шифры. Когда-нибудь он станет мировым стандартом. Сьюзан глубоко вздохнула.
