Malaria: The best-known parasitic disease to be malaria. 300-500 million people fall ill every year. Malaria is spread by a mosquito of the genus Anopheles bites a human. When the mosquito bites humans sprays simultaneously into the saliva to ensure that the blood does not clot and open up blood vessels. In that particular moment following the pleasant parasite sporoziten with into man. After half an hour sporoziten hiding in the liver, spleen or lungs and converted into schizonts. Which sits schizonterna and begin sharing their nuclei and organelles to form daughter cells. After about a week exploded schizonterna. Then maybe you think you escaped.

But it has not really. When schizonterna exploded fly merozoites out, what are the daughter cells schizonterna formed. This is when the merozoites go out into your bloodstream as they have a fever. When in the bloodstream ducking merozoites into the red blood cells, where they become its final stage, the trophozoite. Trophozoites then eat up the hemoglobin in the body to multiply. Cosy.

After they had eaten up the cells so blow those cells to release even more parasites that can invade other blood cells. One might think that the parasites will die at the same time as man does, but malaria parasites are a few cunning rascal. In a small portion of the red blood cells the parasites develop to gametocyte, which infect biting mosquitoes and thus spread. The parasites never die.

Symptoms of malaria include fever, aches, vomiting and diarrhea. The fever increases due to the red blood cells burst and more parasites come out of the blood. Another effect of blood explosive force is severe anemia.

A major problem is drug resistance, especially against quinine. Quinine comes incidentally from china tree confusing enough grows in South America. Kininbark discovered as a cure for malaria in the 1800s by Europeans but had been used by the Indians long before that.

The tonic is actually quinine, as if you are ever thinking of going into something damp and malaria occurring place, have a bottle of tonic. British sailors drank tonic for the prevention of malaria, but quinine gives a very bitter taste, so they began to mix the tonic with gin to remove bitterness. Drink gin & tonic was invented words to flavor malaria medicine.
