Malaria a deadly epidemic- kills millions of people every year, mostly children. To get over it, WHO recommended people to use DDT to kill malaria mosquitoes in homes.

A recent study found an alternative to cure malaria patients with infusions of albumin which is a blood protein that helps to prevent malaria.
