Summary- SWBS & Txt Tlk
All Lazear wanted to do was prove his mosquito theory right. And some of the other scientists didn't think that was the cause and told him that, so Lazear proved his point but before he could really talk to anyone about it he died from yellow death.
The author used these numbers and stats so she could show how many people suffered from Yellow Death and how many people died.
How would you have dealt with being one of Lazear's test subjects to see if mosquitos could have caused Yellow Death?
Hoping to see if his mosquito theory was right, Lazear never got to see the finish line to really prove it was the mosquitos.
Believe in yourself- perseverance- If at first, you don't succeed try, try again- don't let others bring you down- stand up tall
Lazear's mosquito theory was almost solved, but he died before it was over.
