It is agreed by most authorities that at present the most promising method of control of bilharziasis is by attack on the molluscan intermediate hosts of the parasites. For one reason or another, all such methods are expensive, and any way in which the cost could be reduced would permit more widespread and effective control of bilharziasis. It is clear, therefore, that a fundamental understanding of the snail hosts is desirable, since it is through a knowledge of the cha...

A doença mental não é sinal de malogro pessoal. Não acontece só aos os outros. Todos nos lembramos de uma época, ainda não há muito tempo, em que não se podia falar abertamente sobre cancro.

Excluir, não». A sua mensagem era a de que não se justifica excluir das nossas comunida...
