A BUG THAT KILLS

FROM THE DALLAS MORNING NEWS:

"In Texas, one in every 6,500 blood donors are infected with Chagas disease, compared with one in every 27,500 donors across the country."

"The parasite buries itself in heart muscle and the gut and can hide for two decades or more before causing symptoms, including sudden death."

Before the racists weigh in, you could have travelled to Cancun 20 years ago and gotten bit, and just now learn you have the disease.  What scares me is I have seen this bug in my yard.  They are in Texas.

I suggest you read the article
