    The very very sad story about the little girl who died from malaria because she went to Africa reminded me of this:

    It is about some who claim be valid health practitioners giving their nostrums as substitutes for malaria prophylactics to people traveling to Africa. While the story by Prof. Despommier is so very sad, the story about the misleading advice by these people should make one angry.

    Again, I must say that Dr. Despommier is a wonderful story teller!
