RE: Malaria Prophylaxis and Natural Selection

in Proof of Brain3 months ago

I have never had malaria, but have been to places where it was always a concern. Not sure I would ever want to go through it or know someone who experienced it.

Very good of you to share this information and some herbal remedies.

Sort:  

Having malaria is still a bit safer for those in malaria-endemic areas as their body system already knows the parasite and might have been building inherent immunity. People who did not grow up in the endemic areas are more likely to get serious complications or even death from it.

Oh yes, which is why it was always a concern for me. I never grew up around it. I never had malaria, but I did spend a great deal of time, when overseas, with my pants around my ankles squatting over a log, and if lucky a toilet.

That sounds like some adventures :). Lucky you!
