Got Malaria? Nuke Yourself!!!
Malaria is a huge problem in many parts of the world. The disease, which is spread by tiny mosquitos, still claims the lives of nearly a million people each year. The hardest hit areas — mainly countries in sub-Saharan Africa — struggle both financially and logistically to obtain vaccines, and some new strains of the disease are growing immune to modern medicines. However, the solution might be simpler than anyone had guessed, and new research is underway that could produce an instant cure, in the form of human-sized microwave ovens.
