Are we humans less resistive to diseases?

Let us compare ourselves to other living creatures of earth. We pay a lot of attention of health and hygiene and in case we neglect it, we get infected easily. But what about other creatures on earth. They are not washing hands before eating, not cleaning foods...... They eat food they get...Even old food don't harm their body easily. Their drinking water is not clean. They are not taking proper care on health. They intake soil and other dirt particles along with their food. yet they stay healthy than we humans. Even an infected mosquito bite can end a human's life. Why so much difference between we and other living beings, though we are all living in same environment & nature?

Let me tell you the differences in scenario then and now.

Then when the environment was in its best, all living organisms man and animals and all other living organisms lived an ailment free life. Why? Everything water, food fruits etc were available in the purest of the purest form. Animals lived in their natural habitats.

Now the present scenario changed in such a big way that all living organisms have become a prey to ailments. Because environment was abused left, right and middle. Trees were felled indiscriminately Townships sprouted up. All this is the result of  environment abuse. Now you can see Animals and snakes entering in to the living places. Why ? Their natural habitats were invaded by the greedy man. It was only the other day in my state AP, a Cheetah entered into a township which created terreor. Had these animals lived in their natural habitats, they wouldn't have entered the townships. A cobra was killed in by people in a village. without exception all living organisms fallen prey to the environmental abuse.

My conclusion is irrespective of the species of the organisms all have become less resistant to ailments.

Every living creature lives in its own plane of existence. We cannot compare them with humans even though we are all living in the same environment in the same planet. We are in a human universe filled with human vibrations and those creatures are in their own specific universes with their own unique vibrations.   Physiology and philosophy vary. The concepts of health and hygiene or sickness and well-being are entirely different.  So I feel such a comparison is futile. But it is true that we are less resistive to diseases compared to our own ancestors. Interestingly, we have become more resistive to poisons, because we are used to it; poison is in our every breath, every drop of water and every food we eat.

I would go with what RAMAKRISHNAN has to say with regard to comparisons being futile ....Human beings are evolving in some ways but we may not be as tough and resistent as our ancestors were ..

For one thing you do not know that other animals also get sick but since they do have diagnostic centers like we have they never discover what they are suffering from. Besides most creatures have shorter lifespan so even if they suffer the real reason does not come to surface. But they suffer for sure but having better resistance power either survive or die due to the illness suffered.

The immunity system of animals becomes more stronger than humans. As we start to take medicines start from birth, various vaccinations are given, so our immune system become dependent on these medicines while not in the case of animals. If we compare children of a village who live and play in sunlight and eat vegetables without washing have more stronger immune system than the children living in metro cities in A.C. rooms.

In our childhood we used to play in sand building sandcastles or in mud but we were not effected by it we used to be healthy and strong. Whereas our children play only inside or in well furnished playgrounds but they are facing the problem of different types of allergies. Why, because of the loss of exposure to outside environment and physical exercise our kids are becoming less resistive to diseases.
