AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome)- Caused all or in part by HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus). 10 year incubation period. Has killed 7 million people so far. HIV invades the immune systems white blood cells by attching and then injecting its RNA. The RNA is enzymatically changed to DNA to replicate the virus inside the cell. The blood cell then bursts, spilling out all the new HIV to renew the reproduction cycle again (which lasts 1.2 days). The immune system becomes so weakened that the patient finally is overcome by other infections. Arthritis, Rheumatoid- Results in soreness and stiffness of muscles, and pain in joints and associated structures. Research has revealed its cause as viral.
Bubonic plague- Caused by the bacteria Yersinia Pestis which is carried by rodents and fleas. Early symptoms 2-6 days after being bitten are painful swollen lymph nodes, fever, exhaustion, headache. It progresses to lung pneumonia resulting in 50% death rate.
Cancer - A malignant tumor or neoplasm. Royal Rife identified two microbes that can cause cancer. Since then many other microbes have been identified as cancer-causing. Important warning signals of cancer are unusual bleeding or discharges, a lump or thickening in any area, a sore that doesn't heal, a change in bowel or bladder habits, hoarseness or persistant cough, indigestion or difficulty swallowing, change in size or shape or appearance of a wart or mole, unexplained weight loss.
Cholera - A bacterial infection in the intestines that prevents the absorption of salt and water which results in dehydration and death. Characterized by diarrhea, painful cramps, and tendency to collapse. Transmission is through water, milk, or other foods contaminated with excreta of patients or carriers.
Chronic Fatigue Immune Dysfunction Syndrome (CFIDS)- A chronic viral infection which causes immune deficiency and chronic fatigue.
Dengue Fever - A tropical viral infection carried by mosquitos. Illness produced ranges from nonspecific viral syndrome to severe and fatal hemorrhagic disease. When hemorrhagic the fatality rate is 5%. Hundreds of thousands of hemorrhagic cases occur yearly. The classic symptoms of Dengue Fever include a high fever that may last from 5 to 7 days; intense headache; eye, joint and muscle pain; and a rash. The rash typically begins on the arms or legs 3-4 days after the beginning of the fever.
Diptheria - A bacterial infection characterized by the formation of a false membrane on any mucous surface and occasionally on the skin. Usually accompanied by great prostration. Most cases occur before age of 10. Transmission direstly from human carrier or articles contaminated. Typical is a yellowish-white membrane on tonsils or pharyngeal walls.
Ebola Virus Hemorrhagic Fever - A severe systemic febrile illness caused by one of 4 viruses. Transmitted from infected people. 22-90% fatal. Causes internal bleeding with loss of clotting ability which can result in death.
Flu (influenza) - A viral infection that results in fever, respiratory symptoms, headache, muscle aches, fatigue. Can lead to pneumonia. 20,000 deaths in USA yearly.
Gulf War Syndrome - A CFIDS like sickness that in 50% of cases is caused by a mycoplasma. Other cases are caused by chemical exposure or by other infectious agents. Moderate estimates are of 70,000 cases. The mycoplasma is highly contagious.
Gonorhea - Contagious infection causing inflamation of genital mucous membranes. Symptoms: slow, difficult, painful urination. In females: urethral or vaginal discharge, painful or frequent urination, lower abdominal pain, tenderness in the area of Bartholins and Skenes glands.
Hanta Virus Pulmonary Syndrome- The virus is carried by rodents. The first symptoms are flu-like then progress to difficulty breathing due to accumulating fluid in the lungs. 50% death rate. Acquired from rodents excrement or carcasses. In Argentina in '96 it was highly contagious person-to-person.
Hepatitis - Inflamation of the liver of virus or toxic origin. It usually manifests by jaundice and in some instances by liver enlargement. Fever and other systemic disorders are usually present.
Hepatitis A - Contagious via blood and intercourse. Not chronic (not on-going). No long term liver damage. Symptoms; jaundice (yellow eyes & dark urine), tiredness, low appetite, intermittent nausea, abdominal pain, diarrhea.
Hepatitis B - Same symptoms as A except no diarrhea. Chronic. Can also be acquired by baby during birthing.
Hepatitis C - Same as B but caused by a different virus.
Hepatitis G- Same as B & C but only transmittable via blood.
Herpes Simplex Type 1 - Caused by HSV-1 virus which affects the skin, mucous membranes, nervous system, and the eye. This causes cold sores or fever blisters on/in the mouth which may develop into ulcers. When the eye is involved, herpes simplex typically affects the eyelids, conjunctiva, and cornea. HSV-1 is usually transmitted from person to person by saliva or direct contact.
Herpes Simplex Type 2 - Caused by HSV-2 virus which affects the genital area with blisters. HSV-2 is usually transmitted person to person by intimate contact. Symptoms typically begin with pain, tenderness, or an itch in the genital area and occur with fever, headache, and malaise (a generally ill feeling). Blisters soon appear on the penis in males and on the area around the vagina in females. In females, blisters may spread to the cervix, and in both sexes they may appear on the thighs and buttocks. Blisters soon erupt to form painful sores that last 1 to 3 weeks.
Lassa Fever - A hemorrhagic virus that dissolves organs and causes death by internal bleeding. Its natural host is a certain species of African rat. Symptoms: abrupt onset of high fever with generalized muscle pain, headache, dizziness with flushing of face, conjuctival injection, and vomiting. Hemorrhagic areas of the skin and mucous membranes may appear on the 4th day.
Legionnaires Disease - An infection caused by the bacteria Legionella Pneumophila that results in pneumonia or fever. 5-15% of cases are fatal. 10-15 thousand cases are known to occur in USA yearly. The people who get the mild fever-only type recover in only 2-5 days.
Lyme Disease - Caused by a spirochete that is transmitted by the bite of a tick. Symptoms in early stages are skin rash, fever, malaise, fatigue, muscle pain, joint pain. Treated soon enough it can be eliminated with antibiotics. Transmission is inefficient before 36 hours of tick attachment.
Malaria - Caused by protozoan parasites inside red blood cells. Blood cells are destroyed as a result of their reproductive cycle. It infects 500 million people annually. Chills and fever occur at 48 hour intervals in tertain malaria and 72 hour intervals in quartan malaria. Symptoms of malaria include fever and flu-like illness, including shaking chills, headache, muscle aches, and tiredness. Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea may also occur. Malaria may cause anemia and jaundice (yellow coloring of the skin and eyes) because of the loss of red blood cells. It's transmitted by mosquitos. Incubation period may be 2 weeks or 8-10 months.
Obesity - Caused by an adenovirus in 15% of cases.
Tuberculosis - An infectious bacterial disease characterized by inflammatory infiltrations, formation of tubercles (solid elevations of skin or mucous membranes), tissue death, abscesses, formation of fibrous tissue, and calcification of tissue. Infection is transmitted from infected people, cows, or contaminated milk. Presently the worlds leading killer.
Yellow Fever - A viral disease transmitted by mosquitos. Only in South America and Africa. A vaccine exists but shouldn't be received by people with immune deficiency. The symptoms of yellow fever include fever, chills, headache, backache, nausea, and vomiting. Jaundice (yellowing of the skin and whites of the eyes) also occurs. Some cases progress to more serious forms, which may affect the blood, liver, and kidneys.
