This paper discusses the potentially fatal disease malaria, including an examination of symptoms, diagnosis, treatment and prevention.

This paper is an in-depth look at the disease malaria. The author examines the flu-like symptoms associated with the illness, how long they last, the aggressive campaigns to reduce mosquito populations, and how mosquitoes transmit the disease. The paper also discusses treatments, such as Malarone, chloroquine, mefloquine, primaquine, and pyrmethemine.
“Malaria is a devastating disease which is typified by flu-like symptoms which can escalate into coma and even death. It is caused by a one celled parasite, Plasmodium, and has multiple strains with slightly varying symptoms and behaviors. This disease has confused and terrified humans on ever continent for all of recorded history, partly because of the seemingly inexplicable nature of its transmission and partly because of the difficulty of finding a cure. Like most natural parasitic infections, there is a natural cure for malaria. However, the tree that grows this cure is found only in areas of South America, and for many years the disease was most frequent in swampish European and African areas.”
