Fast Food Scraps Threaten Rat Plague?
Britain is facing a sharp rise in its rat population as growing numbers of people leave fast food scraps in the street, an environment group warned. Keep Britain Tidy said the rodents were abandoning their traditional haunts underground and were roaming the streets, enticed by discarded remnants of burgers, pizzas and crisps. "The rat population is on the rise and soon it'll be as common to see a rodent on our street as it is to see a dog or a cat," said group Director, Sue Nelson. The practice of dumping fast food litter and scraps on the street rather than in the trash - with young men the worst offenders - was behind the rise. According to the National Rodent Survey in 2001, Britain's rat population has grown by nearly one quarter since 1998 and is now estimated at 60 million, two million more than the human population. On average a rat can give birth every 24-28 days and just a single pair of rats can produce a colony of 2,000 a year. Around 200 Britons a year contract Weil's Disease - an infection which can lead to kidney or liver failure and eventually death and which is carried in rat's urine. To highlight the issue, Keep Britain Tidy launched a cinema advert entitled "How close do you want them to get?" The ad culminates in a shocking image of a young woman sleeping in a bed of rats - echoing the nightmare scenario from James Herbert's classic horror tale The Rats, in which mutant rodents begin to prey on humans.today is sunday.tom is at home.now he is very hungry,he wants to eat some food,so he opens the fridge."oh,my god."he says,"where is my mother?"he says again. "she is working in her office. she gets very busy in the these days." tom's father says,and he keeps on, " no one has time to shopping, except you. call for a pizza, then you would have to go shopping after lunch."
今天周日，汤姆在家里。如今他感觉很饿，爱吃点物品，因此他开启电冰箱, "我的天呐！"汤姆说。"我妈妈在哪儿？" 汤姆又问。"她在人事工作。这段时间她都比较忙。" 父亲说。他又继续说: "除了，没有人有时间去购物了。通电话叫一个pizza吧，吃了后你便去购物。"
