Death to Self

            From TIME magazine’s Feb. 28th issue, here is an example of self-denial:

            In the early twentieth century, Walter Reed and his three junior doctors, James Carroll, Aristides Agramonte and Jesse Lazear desired to discover the cause of Yellow Fever, which killed so many American soldiers during the Spanish American War.
            Exposing themselves to disease-carrying mosquitoes, Lazear died from the experimentation, and Carroll suffered long-term complications, which eventually killed him at age 53.
