19 Diseases You Can Get While Traveling
Who’s up for some diarrhea, abdominal cramps, nausea, vomiting, and dehydration fun? Yeah, I didn’t think so. Cholera is contractible by unclean water and seafood. Thankfully, there’s a new vaccination for those who want to eat like Anthony Bourdain.
The sore throat leads to neck pains. And the neck pains lead to skin ulcers. And the skin ulcers lead to a one in ten chance of death. You don’t want diphtheria. The disease — which is found predominantly in Eastern Europe and Russia – is preventable via a vaccine. Thank you, science!
Anybody else terrified by the TB test? Yeah, me neither… Of course, TB is no laughing matter. It’s one of the world’s leading causes of death (also found quite heavily in Brazil…). Avoid it by getting immunized.
