Detailed Product Description

1995. 197 pp, 4 maps. Essential for 3rd world travel. The index lists 25 pages for digestive tract, 13 for malaria and 31 for fever, more.  Dehydration is bad. Typhoid is bad. And fungal infections are no fun either. But the solution doesn't have to be staying at home behind triple locks. Dirk Schroeder's slim but informative volume sets out the health risks involved in seeing the pyramids, snorkeling off Thailand, and breathing the thin air of the Andes. He tells you the warning signs, preventative as well as curative measures, and when to hightail it out of there to your doctor.<P>

Not just a worry-wart's companion, Schroeder's 200-page booklet should make it onto everyone's must-pack list.  Both short-term vacationers and seasoned travelers need a tool to help them maintain good health while visiting or living in developing nations. Thoughtfully organized, Staying Healthy in Asia, Africa, and Latin America is organized to meet travelers' needs throughout their journeys. This user-friendly handbook offers a comprehensive overview of the most common health problems travelers encounter, along with tips on how to avoid them. Detailed sections on immunization, first aid, nutrition, and mental attitude provide the information readers need to keep their trips healthy, safe, and enjoyable.  Paperback, new condition.
