Malaria literally means bad air. They all thought it was dirty air 50 years before that and almost all time before that. Swampish air was bad so building a taller home above was the solution.

@Effortless This is why anyone who tells you there's "consensus" in the science...any science...any topic...is a fool and doesn't understand science. Science cares nothing for consensus, never has. In fact, most revolutionary breakthroughs are accomplished by those who bucked the consensus bandwagon.

There used to be a consensus among scientists that the human body couldn't physically hold together at speeds over 30mph, or that heavier than air flight was a possibility. Consensus <> anything.
