How to Not Die of Disease in India

  • 1 Adult Polio Booster (India is one of four countries in the world where Polio has not yet been eradicated.)
  • 4 Oral Typhoid Tablets
  • 4 months' supply Doxycycline (For the prevention of Malaria. Must be taken daily throughout and four weeks after returning home.)
  • Assorted lesser medicines and proventitive tools.

My body will be a super disease-fighing machine.


  1. You can also drinks lots of gin and tonics (with quinine) to help fight off malaria.

  2. Great idea!
    And just in case it helps, I'll get started before I leave. ;-)

  3. Whoa, 4 months of Doxycycline plus Indian cuisine? I hate to say it, but welcome to shit city my friend.


  4. Thanks, I can't wait.
    Fortunately, I got the extra strength anti-lax, if you know what I mean.
