some symptoms
eventually it can cause
inflammation and swelling
of nearly all major organs.
Ebola is a deadly disease that has been known to kill up to 90% of its victims.
Mad cow disease causes a abnormal simple protein called a prion, which causes the disease.
Often when theirs a mad cow outbreak, panicked
people stop eating red meat which is then pulled from supper market stores.
Mad cow disease affects
the nerves and brain tissue.
This is a picture of a prion. there is no treatment for the prion disease.
A human can only get mad cow disease
if they eat the nerve tissue, brains, or spinal

called mycobacterium.
The symptoms
People with weakened
immune systems are
especially susceptible
to Tuberculosis
Tuberculosis is the number
one killer of AIDS patients.
The bacteria can attack
any part of the body
such as the kidney,
spine, and the brain.

that is infected may breathe in
the bacteria and then they would
become infected.
Tuberculosis can live in the
body without making you sick
this is called latent tuberculosis
infection. People with latent
infection are not infectious and
cannot spread tuberculosis to
If tuberculosis bacteria
become active in the body
