Approximately 30 million people have died from AIDS-related infections globally. At some point, we all dreaded because it was assumed that it was the most deadly disease. However, many ailments on the rise are deadlier than AIDS. Below are 5 diseases that kill quicker than HIV AIDS.
Experts admit that it is the most lethal disease as there are more than 100 types of cancer. When diagnosed at an earlier stage, cancer does not kill because early treatment can help control it. When advanced, you do not stand the chance to fight the infection. Common examples of cancer include breast, prostrate, skin, liver, and lung cancer. Its cells divide to form lumps. They then move uncontrollably to different body parts if not promptly attended to.
Human Papilloma Virus (HPV)
HPV refers to a group of viruses that often affect the skin and moist membranes. This is a new deadly disease transmitted through sexual intercourse. It is presumed to be deadlier than AIDS. Moist membranes that might get infected include the cervix, mouth and anus. HPV consists of a group of more than 150 related diseases. They can be contacted through direct skin-to-skin contact that end up affecting the genitals and can develop into prostrate and cervical cancer. Notably, women contract HPVs more than men. However, there is a preventive vaccine for the common type of HPVs. Condoms cannot help prevent this virus because slight contact to infected skin is enough to spread HPV.
