from a 2007 national Geographic article on malaria

The disease's name comes from the Italian mal'aria, meaning "bad air"; in Rome, where malaria raged for centuries, it was commonly believed that swamp fumes produced the illness. At least four popes died of it. It may have killed Dante, the Italian poet. George Washington suffered from malaria, as did Abraham Lincoln and Ulysses S. Grant. In the late 1800s, malaria was so bad in Washington, D.C., that one prominent physician lobbied-unsuccessfully-to erect a gigantic wire screen around the city. A million Union Army casualties in the U.S. Civil War are attributed to malaria, and in the Pacific theater of World War II casualties from the disease exceeded those from combat. Some scientists believe that one out of every two people who have ever lived have died of malaria.

I call BS, one million is greater than the amount of total dead for both sides in the Civil War.

Really? I thought P. falciparum was already pretty damn nasty already.

Remember, kids, if you have a choice, pick P. malariae!

"Casualities" include "injured" as well as "dead."

And the REAL scientists calculate and have evidence instead of believing.....
