Parasites & Infectious Disease
Pervasive and invasive, parasites are Mother Nature’s army of mini-monsters that plague us with morbidity and mortality. Parasitology is vast and includes viruses, bacteria, fungi, protozoa, worms, insects, and arachnids. Despite media hype, the best antiparasitics are fresh air, sunshine, hygiene, and nutrition, since vaccines are vexed and antibiotics create lethal superbugs and superinfections. To quote GB Shaw, "Science never solves one problem without creating ten more."
