Recommended. This documentary examines the health and disease issues arising in human populations from the current deforestation of the Amazon. According to estimates, almost 30% of the Amazon rain forest will have disappeared by 2010. As a result, there are many mysterious viruses and incurable diseases occurring among the human inhabitants. The indigenous peoples believe that this is the forest taking revenge.' - EMRO Review The wave of destruction in the Amazon has increased dramatically over the past 30 years; this compelling documentary looks at a curious and troubling side affect from this serious situation. From the 16th century to 1970, only 1% of the total Amazonian forest was felled, since then 14% of the rainforest has been cut down, and that percentage continues to increase; every eight seconds an area equivalent to a football field is chopped down, set on fire, and turned into pasture or agricultural land. Now mysterious viruses and incurable diseases are killing people at an alarming rate. The indigenous Indio people who live in the forest believe the Amazon is getting its revenge; also medical staffers in the region are beginning to think there may be some truth in the native people's thinking
