Archaeological evidence suggests that about 2000 years ago human populations in the wet, forested areas of tropical Africa were very sparse, consisting of tiny hands of hunters and gatherers. At about 250 BC, iron appeared in the Nok sites of Nigeria. People made iron axes that were far more effective in cutting the forest than their stone tools had been. They made iron hoes, and cultivated cut-and-burned areas of forest with new wetland crops just entering Africa by sea...

Most authorities are agreed that the best approach to the control of bilharziasis is through an attack upon the molluscan intermediate host (WHO Expert Committee on Bilharziasis, 1961, 1965; World Health Organization, 1965).

It seems probable that transmission has been interrupted more frequently by ...
