#1 Chagas Disease
Chagas disease is unique on this list because it can kill you in a day… or in THIRTY YEARS. The disease is spread by tropical insects commonly known as “kissing bugs” and causes acute and chronic symptoms, including fever, fatigue, vomiting, and, in rare cases, death from swelling of the heart or brain. If you manage to survive stage one, Chagas might still kill you decades later by enlarging your esophagus, colon, or the ventricles in your heart.
Dying from Ebola means you vomit, diarrhea, and bleed until you die. Yes, Ebola is that scary. About half the people infected with Ebola die from it, and in some places the fatality rate goes up to 90 percent. There’s no specific treatment, cure, or vaccine, and the disease can only really be limited by controlling outbreaks. People who survive often have damaged hearing and eyesight, fatigue, and muscle and joint pain.
