    AIDS mysteriously appears in Africa and the gay community in the 1980s.

    As does the "Nodding Disease."

    Check out this photo-essay (?): http://echwaluphotography.wordpress...m-tormented-12-year-old-girl-lives-like-pigs/

    I commented there (as Onitaset):

    "I thank you.
    These things I never heard of. It’s shocking.
    No wonder Shakespeare (in Hamlet) says, “There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.”
    And no wonder the ancient people of Kemet wrote, “Routine and prejudice distort vision. Each man thinks his own horizon is the limit of the world.”
    Human misery appears to know no bounds. My heart to this child.
    Hotep!"

    Then I tried "Wikipedia" for the gist: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nodding_disease

    What is this about? More biological warfare?

    Sometimes I wish that we could not mind the European--but this villain is dastard. Very, very dastard.

    A curious feature is that no seizures occur when victims are given an unfamiliar food; for example, a candy bar.[9]


    I think they need to figure out how to eradicate the worm they think is causing this

    Diagnosis and treatment [edit]

    Diagnosis is not very advanced and is based on the telltale nodding seizures of the victims. When stunted growth and mental handicap are also present, probability of nodding syndrome is high. In the future, neurological scans may also be used in diagnosis. As there is no known cure for the disease, treatment has been directed at symptoms, and has included the use of anticonvulsants such as sodium valproate[10] and phenobarbitol. Anti-malaria drugs have also been administered, to unknown effect.[7]


    This disease is probably as bad as it gets, smh.


    Peace In,
