It wouldn't be until nineteen o three that a microbiologist named david bruce discovered the carrier of the parasite abiding insect called all the seat see fly today. Historians believe that the wave of sleeping sickness that followed stanley's wake contributed to an outbreak that took the lives of millions of people across across africa just in the area around lake victoria alone the parasite was responsible for nearly a quarter of a million deaths which has caused some to talk talk about it within the framework of what's referred to as the revenge of nature that the world around us has a way of keeping humanity in check after all all humans have a history of damaging ecosystems and altering the very landscape of the places we live. Some people believe that parasites are one in way the world exacts revenge true or not.

There's a hidden world inside each of us a world of about those opinions infected women share that same suspicion and anxiety but also become more outgoing and persistent assistant take from that whatever you want but it's clear that parasites can alter our minds just as well as they do our bodies and maybe maybe that's why parasites are so frightening to us yes the things they can do are horrifying to consider the disease and damage that they can cause but it's there near invisibility that frightens us the most.

"Africa in eighteen seventy four the mission this time was to map more of the waterways that livingstone had started and so stanley spent three years following the congo congo river all the way to the atlantic and then he headed to europe to find a financial backer to continue selling it as an investment into the politics of the congo after england ignore the offer king leopold the second of belgium jumped at the chance for the next five years stanley became the chief agent responsible for for organizing what would become one of the world's most brutal imperial outposts of european power the belgian congo and sadly he was a horrible representative of europe to the people of africa through the eighteen eighties and nineties stanley criss crossed back and forth across africa creating a highway that allowed imperial troops to easily march in and take control he was less than agent of progress and more a harbinger of colonialism it said that stanley would shoot local people without warning and that he had a knack for stealing ivory and olive it made him a superstar back in england. He'd come full circle and lived out. Everyone's dreams after starting life as an orphan in a workhouse in wales he found himself being welcomed home to reception at london's royal albert hall royalty aristocrats and members of the wealthy elites all crowded around to shake his hand and congratulate him. I'm on his accomplishments. There was fan mail and awards and magazine covers and of course the book deal which turned into a national bestseller in eighteen eighteen ninety five he was elected to the british parliament and four years later he was knighted by queen victoria herself and that's the story of henry stanley or at least the one that history remembers the most but stanley's journey across africa did more than earned him medals and applause. You left a trail of destruction an catastrophe in his wake that is almost impossible to quantify and at the center of much of it was something we would only be able to see under a microscope stanley's highway across africa opened the way for imperial troops to march in and take control it provided an easy route for slavers to go deeper into the the continent and steal human beings from new native groups but it also spread something that had remained isolated until his arrival the trypanosomiasis recites sites the symptoms caused by its infection earned it the nickname the sleeping sickness patients i experienced fever and headaches as well as swollen lymph lymph nodes and internal organs like the liver and spleen then the parasite crosses into the brain bringing on mental confusion and overwhelming sleepiness after the patient falls into a coma death is close behind for much of the eighteen hundreds that parasite was trapped in pockets along the coast of western western africa sure folks would get sick but because they rarely travelled outside their small regions the parasite never migrated that is of course until stanley arrived to blaze an easy accessible highway from the atlantic ocean to the interior of africa.

It's certainly invites us to stop and think about the consequences of our actions because sometimes it seems the world around us bites back <music> <music> <music>. There's a hidden world inside each of us a world of organs and systems and the careful balance lintz between sickness and health. We can't see much of it with our naked eyes but it's there just beneath the surface one good example apple is a parasite called taco plasma gandhi which can be ingested through contaminated drinking water. It's primarily carried by cats but can also live inside inside human beings and according to most parapsychologists over half of all people on the planet carry them usually without symptoms or at least the sort sort of symptoms you might expect but one study from two thousand seven hints at a darker impact. It seems that the presence of the parasite can and actually have an effect on our behavior over the course of this eleven year study jaroslav pfleger discovered that people infected by the parasite behave differently differently from those who aren't men who are infected apparently tend to ignore rules more often and exhibit jealousy and suspicion they tend to be more opinionated opinionated and argumentative about those opinions infected women share that same suspicion and anxiety but also become more outgoing and persistent assistant take from that whatever you want but it's clear that parasites can alter our minds just as well as they do our bodies and maybe maybe that's why parasites are so frightening to us yes the things they can do are horrifying to consider the disease and damage that they can cause but it's there near invisibility that frightens us the most.
