However recently the Discovery Channel has begun airing a new show which has neither educational nor intrinsic value, the show in question being Naked and Afraid. I as well as many other viewers am distressed by this departure from the educational values of Discovery Communications for unnecessary sensationalism and prurient interest. This is made worse by the fact that many families and children enjoy watching Discovery programming I know I certainly do but Naked and Afraid is definitely not family friendly. This cannot be illustrated better then by the recent incident were the female contestant Manu Toiga contracted Dengue fever from an insect bite and almost bled to death. Dengue fever has no cure in its advanced stages and health experts agree that Toiga is lucky to still be alive.
