In spite of medical science’s long path on searching the cures for almost everything, we are still left with a bunch of awful diseases. The diseases which even science find difficult to explain. Whether it is about a virus rotting your lungs or the disease that would make you poop to death, they all exist. And we are sure you wouldn’t want to get diagnosed with any of these, ever.
