Here is an innovative malaria test. Just stick a patch and we have the result

Malaria is the most common infectious disease in the world, affecting over 220 million people every year - for example, in 2018 it was 228 million cases, which led to 405,000 deaths. Cases outside the endemic areas of this disease (it is worth noting that Poland once belonged to them too) are relatively rare, so as you can easily guess, there are regions where it is a real plague. And that's exactly what happens in Africa, where we see 93% of all cases and 94% of deaths. As with many diseases, quick action is key, but unfortunately testing for malaria means taking a blood sample, testing it in a laboratory, and evaluating doctors.

It's amazing, our ancestors most likely had the ability to hibernate

Interestingly, the latest research indicates that we once had it, although we were not the best at it. When a bear wakes up from hibernation, its bones and muscles are practically the same as when it went to sleep, because its body has learned not to eat itself. Instead, a specialized metabolic process comes into play that protects the animals during a prolonged nap, provided they have sufficient supplies in advance. If they fail to do so, they must take into account that hibernation may end badly - rickets, hyperparathyroidism or bone dystrophy are some of the possibilities that, according to the researchers, could also have happened to our ancestors falling asleep for the winter.
