Sorry for the repeat e-mail (and this will be the last one, I promise). It gets annoying and parasitic. But you know what's infinitely more annoying and parasitic? Malaria, coupled with the fact that malaria still has a devastating impact today. 1-3 million people (70% of them children under age 5) continue to die of malaria every year. Malaria is the world's single largest killer of pregnant mothers.
