    Stinky feet odor may prevent malaria deaths
    Mosquitoes lured to traps using natural and artificial foot smell

    The researchers, led by Fredros Okumu at the Ifakara Health Institute in Tanzania, are developing traps using natural and artificial foot odors to
    lure mosquitoes and prevent them from spreading diseases like malaria. Their project was just awarded a grant from Grand Challenges Canada and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

    who knew that someone's awful foot oder could do some good?

    That's an interesting discovery--another breakthrough in science!The problem is...how to make our feet to get smelly(if you don't have that problem naturally).
