Filth Diseases Page Added


Today I am adding a page on “Filth Diseases – a term coined by British Dr. Charles Murchison in 1858.  While he originally used the term for both gastrointestinal and respiratory tract illnesses, I’m using it for gastrointestinal  and louse type issues – personal dislikes of mine.

To include diarrhea and dysentery, typhoid, hepatitis A & E and a host of those illnesses that are frequently to disgusting to talk about in “polite” society.  Add louse-borne illinesses and it might just be a little gross for some.
