Individuals who hate durian should start loving durian no matter how obnoxious the taste and odor is. This is especially true if you have developed symptoms of dengue, a hemorrhagic fever that causes clotting of blood in the internal organs that may lead to death.
Durian, like Tawa Tawa leaves, is recommended by herbalists for dengue hemorrhagic fever. Even patients who have tried such remedy could attest durian's benefits in increasing platelet count.
Since I do not like durian, I just have to apply mosquito repellant lotion every time I go out. It keeps me safe from dengue-carrying mosquito and from eating the repulsive durian.
