Top 10 Infectious Diseases 10. Smallpox This variola virus had many forms and continues to be a required vaccination for many countries. Smallpox in its worse forms â€“ hemorrhagic and flat â€“ had the highest fatality rates with only a 10 percent or less chance of survival. Fortunately this disease has been the only one on this list to be completely eradicated from nature since it is only contagious through humans. 9. Typhoid fever.
Typhoid Fever Perhaps one of the least lethal diseases on this list, the fatality rate of typhoid fever is only 1030 percent. But the symptoms show up in stages over a period of three weeks and, in most cases, are not fatal. That said, the disease can stay dormant in a person who has overcome it and then be passed on to another person. The most famous case of this was the American cook in the early 1900s known as â€œTyphoid Maryâ€� Mallon. 8. Influenza Perhaps the scariest virus on this list is one that anyone anywhere can contract â€“ influenza.
Luckily, the flu is easily identified and in most countries easily combated. However, young children and the elderly are particularly susceptible to flu. And the most famous strain was the Spanish Flu, which was estimated to have killed 25 percent of the human population in 19181919. Thankfully that strain has never been seen again; however, the flu virus is famous for mutating from animals to humans. 7. Bubonic Plague This plague is transmitted through infected fleas and kills about 70 percent of its victims in 47 days. The most well known epidemic was the Black Death in Medieval times when.
It was rumored to have killed about 25 million in Europe alone and another 50 million across the world. The bubonic plague is often characterized by swollen lymph nodes though the modern world has seen few breakouts. 6. Cholera Normally a human gets cholera from eating or drinking infected food or water. And untreated, the disease will progress from massive diarrhea to shock in 412 hours and possibly death within 18 hours or several days. Luckily, with oral rehydration therapy, a person can survive from cholera; however, in its most severe form, cholera can kill within three.
Hours. But good sanitation practices can curb an outbreak. As the old saying goes â€“ don’t drink the water â€“ in many underdeveloped countries. 5. Anthrax While anthrax has been used as a biological weapon before, a person dies from anthrax after inhalation of the spores or through eating or coming in contact with animals who have ingested the spores. Once contaminated, the bacteria quickly multiples and kills its host by producing two lethal toxins. Death can take from two days up to a month from the cold like symptoms, which then lead to serious breathing problems, shock and the.
Eventual fatality. Large amounts of antibiotics have been shown to be able to stop the disease. A vaccine is known, then again there are also antibioticresistant strains of anthrax. 4. Malaria This vectorborne infectious disease still has outbreaks of more than 500 million per year with anywhere between 13 million deaths when not treated properly. Fortunately with treatment, a person with malaria can expect a full recovery though like many of the diseases on this list, there is no vaccine. However, it has been noted that the deaths caused by Malaria occur on average about one every 30 seconds.
3. SARS Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) has seen only one major outbreak in Asia a few years ago. In most cases, the disease in its viral pneumonia form has a fatality rate of about 70 percent with the highest fatality rate among victims over the age of 65. Supposedly the Chinese government created a vaccine that was effective in about twothirds of the test groups; however, outside of that many of the treatments have proven to cause just as many problems as SARS itself. What doesn’t cure you, will kill you? 2. Ebola.

Hey, everyone! This week’s tutorial is coming by popular demand. Borderline Personality Disorder, eating disorders and selfharm, how do they relate? So stay tuned towards the end of the tutorial ’cause I’m gonna give you the dirty little secret about therapy.
^(soft piano music plays) So I know a lot of you have asked me about Borderline Personality Disorder or otherwise known as BPD, which is easier for me to say, to be honest, ’cause Borderline Personality Disorder’s like (mumbles) I’ll probably mess it up. So BPD is.
Something that a lot of us struggle with. We may have been told by one person that we’re diagnosed with it or we have BPDlike symptoms. And a lot of us just wonder: quot;What the heck does that mean? quot;And if I do have it, quot;why does everybody act.
quot;like it’s such a bad thing?quot; Right? Now, just to give you a little background on what Borderline Pers. Disorder is, it’s really, in my opinion, it’s our mind’s way of coping with things. And I’m going to read to you a little bit of the DSM, so that you know, when someone says you may have BPDlike.
Symptoms or you actually have BPD, what they’re really talking about. Okay? And I’ll try to make this very clear and concise ’cause a lot of times people throw words around that don’t really pertain to us. And I want to make sure you understand what BPD really is. So the DSM states.
That we have to have 5 or more of the following. And this the older DSM ’cause the new one isn’t quite out yet. So when the new one comes out, I’ll get it and then we’ll see if there’s any changes, but I don’t think there is to this. So the first one.
And the one I’ve talked about before in another one of my tutorials ^is frantic efforts to avoid real ^or imagined abandonment. ^This was in my Fear of Abandonment tutorial. ^And this one is probably the most common that I see in borderline patients. But like I said,.
