Parasites! Most people shudder just thinking about some arcane invertebrate feeding off our body, but in fact these are fascinating creatures, each and every one. We almost all have some form of parasites, it’s just that some parasites are more destructive to the human body than others. But more than just being a health issue, did you know that a parasitic infestation could also change your personality, change who you are? Parasites have even changed the course of human history. Tune in tonight for a lively discussion about Sleeping Sickness, Malaria, Cyclospora and a host of other parasites when we speak with clinical parasitologist ROSEMARY DRISDELLE about her fascinating book PARASITES: TALES OF HUMANITY’S MOST UNWATED GUESTS.
