The chemical composition of body fluids and tissue are correlated to the state of health. The concentration level and speciation alterations, as well as correlations of trace chemicals in body tissues and fluids can thus be used as parameters for disease diagnosis, as diseases lead to chemical and structural changes in the body that alter the spectral and image characteristics that may be obtained with spectrocopoic/ imaging of tissue and fliud samples: Each tissue and fliud has a characteristic biochemical composition that alters in response to anatomical and pathological stimuli. We are focused on cancer and malaria as there is a connection between Epstein-Barr virus, falciparum malaria, and some forms of cancer in Africa. It has also been found that similar drugs are effective in curing both
