Posting this for a new friend of mine:
Disease is a pathological condition of an organ or system of an organism, which results from various cases, and categorized by a vast group of symptoms. Presently, the World Health Organization distinguishes 14,199* diseases worldwide. Each year, millions of individuals are diagnosed with diseases. With 1 and 4 individuals becoming affected each year, it is important to become educated and to be aware on the diseases; their symptoms; and their treatments.
Here at Disease.com, we establish an overview on several different diseases (e.g. Lyme, Heart, Crohn's, Alzheimer's, HIV/AIDS), a proven list of treatments, and a concise notice of preventions. Stop, asking questions, and start living a healthier life!"Thank you,
http://www.disease.com/I WAS VERY VERY SURPRISED TO SEE THERE ARE ONLY ABOUT 14,000 DISEASES. I THOUGHT THERE WERE MANY MORE, AT LEAST 50,000 TO 250,000. I GOT THAT IMPRESSION FROM THE AMOUNT OF TIME AND EFFORT IT TAKES FOR MOST CHRONICALLY ILL PEOPLE TO GET ANY DIAGNOSIS.SHEILA
