i'll try to talk more about the place, and things related to all that but as i am really busy, i'll try to post whenever i can.
Here is the first article, about the desease itself. i'm not a doctor, i don't understand all the technical words, so i'll simplify it as much as i can. Excuse me if i'm not getting into much details or if there r some mistakes (but u have to tell me about them)
Although leprosy was well known since old time, the bacteria causing it, Mycobacterium leprae, was discovered in 1873 by Gerhard A. Hansen (1841-1912). it comes from the greek word "lepros".
- loss of sensation at the nerve end
- destroyed blood vessels, ligaments and skin tissues
- eroded bones
- scabs ( i don't know what this means so don't ask me, ask professionals)
Leprosy is neither hereditary nor infected by touch.
Close contact over a long period of time with an untreated person is needed in order to be infected with the disease. (the place i go, in abou zaabal, all people are already treated, i'll talk about there later in following posts).
and finally, leprosy can be cured.
