Ordering a salad for lunch? When Danielle Jordon ordered one she had no idea that she was to become host to an organism that 6 years later would grow into a worm that would burrow into her brain. Been bitten by an insect? This gave Allan Roth ‘flesh-eating strep’, which resulted in his skin shedding like a snake. Walking along a dusty road? The dust might contain fungus spores that will kill the person who simply breathes them into their lungs. These hazards & others are examined in this fascinating foray into the world of Nagami, who specializes in finding the cause of the strange infections presented by her patients. She teaches us what these diseases are, & how it feels to make med. & ethical decisions that can mean the diff. between life & death.
