    'Kissing bug' disease infects OVER 300,000 people in the US...most of whom don't know they have the parasite referred to as 'the new AIDS'
    • Over 300,000 Americans have already been infected with the potentially fatal 'kissing bug disease' called Chagas
    • Chagas is being called the new AIDS because of its asymptomatic beginnings that can turn to a fatal end if the disease progresses
    • Many doctors aren't aware of the prevalence of Chagas and aren't testing people for the disease

    Over 300,000 Americans have already been infected with the potentially fatal 'kissing bug disease' called Chagas but U.S. healthcare workers lack of knowledge about the illness is letting many cases of the parasite unnoticed. Some doctors are calling it the 'new AIDS' because of the way it develops.
    Researchers who gathered on Tuesday at the annual American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene meeting in New Orleans said that if caught early the disease can be cured however sometimes the disease can be asymptomatic and there is a dearth in medication for the condition.
    The CDC reports that the initial symptoms of the disease caused by a parasite, Trypanosoma cruzi, which is spread through the feces of kissing bugs includes fever, fatigue, body aches, rash, diarrhea and vomiting. One of the first visual signs can be a skin lesion or a purplish swelling of the lid of one eye.
    The disease can develop in the body causing eventual heart failure and other deadly complications that by the time they are realized cannot be helped with medicine.

    Symptoms: One of the first visible signs can be a skin lesion or a purplish swelling of the lids of one eye
    Chagas is being called the new AIDS because of its asymptomatic beginnings that can turn to a fatal end if the disease progresses.
    'We were astonished to not only find such a high rate of individuals testing positive for Chagas in their blood, but also high rates of heart disease that appear to be Chagas-related,' said Nolan Garcia, an epidemiologist at the Baylor College of Medicine.
    The CDC has said that they believe most of the people infected with Chagas got the parasite in Mexico or South America before coming to the U.S.

    I never look my mate in the eyes, during our courtship... So as to avoid any awkward saliva exchanges...

    This fucking headline pissed me off.

    You cant get this disease from kissing a human. This has nothing to do with AIDS or sex.

    You get this infection from a bug that likes to bite you around the mouth or some shit. The bug from South America.

    I've seen shows on this, it effects people that live in mud huts and other primitive settings from central and south America. But with the encouraged flooding of people across the borders, all these once isolated diseases and now becoming common place in the U.S.

    Being married beats being alone. When you're not the most attractive guy around, like me, you stick with what you have.
