Quinine- the mos-key-to my heart

 So, I had shots for a bunch of horrid diseases.  
I was surprised to learn I don't need Malaria tablets. Apparently most parts of Asia that I am visiting are Malaria free. The nurse actually pulled up this site for each destination I was visiting to confirm it was OK to go without. Here's the page for Cambodia for example

I foolishly asked the nurse, "So why don't the people who live in Malaria areas take tablets for Malaria then? Don't they get Malaria?"

"THEY DO, and THEY DIE" she said!
