Also in today's Health Matters, It appears mosquitoes are attracted to the smell of stinky feet.
Researchers are using that attraction to combat the spread of malaria in Africa.
A scientific team has developed a potent serum -- similar to that of human foot odor -- to lure and kill mosquitoes.
The synthetic smell is used outdoors in so-called "mosquito landing boxes" to nab the insects known for carrying malaria. Malaria kills about 800-thousand people a year. Most of the victims are children in Africa.
