Syphilis is another serious transmitted disease that has the tendency of becoming deadly if not treated beforehand.
Caused by the bacterium known as Treponema Pallidum, research shows that syphilis has increased over time. And this is believed to be happening because the starting of this disease goes undetected.
Syphilis is likely to attack the heart, brain and nearly all internal organs as time goes on.
