Hmm, did a piece on Chagas for my media course as part of my degree. 20 years ago. Nice they`re on top of things.

CHEGGERS! XD

"But more than 300,000 of the infected live in the United States, many of them immigrants."

Another reason for the yanks to hate.

Sensationalism at its best. Just some researchers trying to get their names known. The sky is falling, the sky is falling!

Ah, gee I made a mistake again.

K, half of 572 million latin americans are women: 266 million people.

5% of which are probably pregnant: 13.3 million

11% of which would have ganja, 1.46 million.

K that sort of make sense, that still means that 18.25% of all infected are pregnant women...

"Wait wtf... ? ... there are around 572 million people in all of Latin America, 11% of that is just shy of 63 million... pregnant women?"

11% of pregnant women. So, if there are 100 pregnant women, 11 would have Chagas. Stay in school!

even if it was just the pregnant women, assume half of those 68 million are women, and that only 5% of them are pregnant at any given time, that still leaves 2, out of the 8 million supposedly infected, as pregnant women...

[quote] More than 8 million people have been infected by Chagas, most of them in Latin and Central America. But more than 300,000 live in the United States. [/quote]

Huh, that sounds like a lot...

[quote] And 11 percent of pregnant women in Latin America are infected with Chagas, the journal said. [/quote]

Wait wtf... ? ... there are around 572 million people in all of Latin America, 11% of that is just shy of 63 million... pregnant women?

K this is losing credibility
