 .



The title of this blog post is pretty self-explanatory. In it, we will discuss the 10 deadliest diseases in the world and how to avoid contracting them. While most of us would like to think that we are invincible, the fact is that each one of us is susceptible to disease. There are many diseases in the world that can lead to death if contracted. Some, like Ebola, receive a lot of attention in the media, but others are lesser-known.
Here are 10 of the deadliest diseases in the world and some tips on how to avoid them.

1. Ebola

Ebola is a virus that causes severe bleeding and organ failure. It is highly contagious and can be deadly in up to 90% of cases. There is no cure for Ebola, and it is curable with supportive care. The best way to avoid contracting Ebola is to avoid exposure to the virus. This means avoiding contact with infected individuals and their bodily fluids.

2.HIV/AIDS

HIV/AIDS is a virus that attacks the immune system, making the body susceptible to other infections and illnesses. AIDS is the most advanced stage of HIV infection and can lead to death if not treated. There is no cure for HIV or AIDS, but there are treatments available that can prolong a person’s life. The best way to avoid contracting HIV or AIDS is by avoiding unprotected sex and using condoms.

3. Tuberculosis

Tuberculosis is a bacterial infection that affects the lungs. It can be deadly if not treated properly, and can also spread to other parts of the body. There is no vaccine for tuberculosis, so it is important to get vaccinated against other diseases like hepatitis B and pneumococcal pneumonia, which can make you more susceptible to tuberculosis.

4. HPV





HPV is a virus that can cause cervical cancer and other types of cancer. Vaccines can protect both girls and boys against HPV and we recommend them for both sexes. Gardasil is the most common HPV vaccine and is a free-for-all for 12-year-olds in the UK.

Influenza, or the flu, is a highly contagious respiratory illness that can be deadly. The best way to protect yourself from the flu is to get vaccinated each year. The flu vaccine is available as an injection or a nasal spray, and it should be given to all adults and children older than six months.

Symptoms of the flu include fever, cough, headache, and body aches. If you think you have the flu, see your doctor right away. Treatment for the flu includes bed rest, fluids, and antiviral medication.

Malaria is a disease that is spread by mosquitoes. While it is treatable with medication, it can be deadly if you are allergic to the medication. The easiest way to prevent malaria is to use insect repellent, wear long sleeves and pants, and sleep under a mosquito net.

7. Diarrhea

This is a very common and harmless problem. Many factors can contribute to it, and sometimes certain medications can cause it. Diarrhea can lead to dehydration and, in severe cases, to death. If you think you have diarrhea, see a doctor immediately.
