Health experts say the newest weapon
against malaria could be stinky feet. In a laboratory study, researchers found
that mosquitoes infected with the tropical disease were more attracted to human
odors from a dirty sock than mosquitoes that didn't carry malaria.
Researchers say the new finding may
help create traps that target only malaria-carrying mosquitoes.
