the mosquito. However that is off topic but I do suspect there may be an inverse correlation between your chances of suffering death by mosquito and your chance of being affected by another epidemic: globesity. Obesity is one of the "most blatantly visible, yet most neglected, public health problems"; the Lancet has released a series about the global pandemic covering the challenge of obesity and what needs to change, the economic and health burdens, 'reversing the tide' and 'where next'. However I think most of it has already been said a couple of years ago; not by Owsblog - although I did suggest certain 'action this day' - but by Sander L. Gilman, Fat Chance (click on image). And despite all that Sander says, I suspect with the way we are heading, the globesity pandemic - such as it is - will soon start to subside.
