The Middle Path, One Day At A Time

A Spoonful of Sugar

1 Comment

Malaria claims more than a million lives and sickens hundreds of millions of people each year, and more than 75% of malaria victims are African children under the age of five. Many of these children die from malaria-related hypoglycemia before they can reach a clinic capable of administering an intravenous dose of glucose, but one researcher believes he has found the solution—sugar. Researchers found that giving patients a teaspoon of moistened sugar under their tongues every 20 minutes is as effective as the standard therapy of intravenous glucose.

One thought on “A Spoonful of Sugar

  1. The “More…” link leads to an article about King Edward VI of England. Did I miss something?

    Apparently there is an error on the other server. Can’t fix it, so removed the link. Thanks for the catch.
