Manyany years ago I was tra tramping through the Bolivianolivian jungle wit with a guide who didn’t speakeak English.Englis My Spanish was limited, so charadeschara were fine until I noticed he kept picking things off his body and squeezing them. Finally I got him to show me what he was doing... and he was killing ticks. An examination of my own body revealed far too many of the little buggers than I care to remember. Our story on page 6 made me grateful I wasn’t allergic to the bites; read it to find out why. Also today we have the lowdown on fermented foods (page 8), a poolside workout (page 16) and more. Happy reading – and stay away from ticks!
