like sars and aids, WHO show data that filipinos have ridiculously low incidences of these deadly diseases. have you read these data? why? i've read it in a newspaper years ago but have to find it here on the net yet. same for swine flu. the death rate compared to other countries is much much less.

I think the reason is we have a stronger resistance as we are more exposed to the outside world since we were kids. i mean, we played outside (on the dirt) so our body developed a good immune system against these diseases. ~~;

I am impressed. May be u all have some genetic resistance to the viruses. Wow! worth studying the chemical composition. I too never get malaria.
