DVD - 2003
Rate this:
Parasites dominate humans. They feed in us, reproduce in us and use us to raise their young. Takes a closer look at the human cost of what these invaders bring and reveals that, contrary to popular belief, not all parasites are as bad as people think. Those that are though include the flesh-eating parasite which Jenny Anderson caught on her foot while on holiday. Informed that she risked facial disfigurement unless treated, Jenny had to spend weeks in hospital. Meanwhile in the U.S., Jonathan Bardon was struck down by malaria. The mosquito-borne disease was thought to have been eradicated from most of the developed world. Jonathan, however, had never left the country.
