Summary
There is a world that thrives all around us - even upon us and within us. It is the world of the microscopic parasite. Although this unique cast of tiny characters represents half of all life-forms, much of their dazzlingly varied universe remains a mystery to us. Understanding how such denizens survive in some of the planet's most inhospitable environments is, perhaps, the most intriguing challenge of all. In this program, an authority from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shares his expertise in parasitic disease, while George Benz, a parasite-enthusiast, displays his unmatched passion for these bizarre and ubiquitous creatures
