Yahoo Lifestyle recently published 10 mysterious diseases via LiveScience. The problem is, not one of the diseases listed is mysterious at all. In fact, every single illness they list as unexplainable has causes and treatments which have been sourced for many years now, and some of these causes may shock you. In this part one of a two-part series, we tackle this first 5 diseases, detailing what they say and what is known.
What They Say:
It's been nearly 30 years since experts first identified Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome, and the disease remains among the world's most potent killers, particularly in developing countries. According to a 2009 report from UNAIDS, more than 33 million people worldwide are living with HIV, as many as 2.7 million people were infected in 2008 and 2 million people died that year. While a cure has yet to be discovered, better treatments and education have made a difference, and a vaccine is currently in the works.
What is Known:
The international nonprofit scientific organization Rethinking AIDS gave its full support early last year to 37 senior researchers, medical doctors and legal professionals who requested that the medical journal Science withdraw four seminal papers on HIV authored by Dr. Robert Gallo—papers widely touted as proof that HIV is the "probable cause of AIDS." Read HIV Does Not Cause Aids
"With new findings that undermine the scientific integrity and veracity of Gallo's four papers, the entire basis of the theory that HIV causes AIDS may now be questioned," says Rethinking AIDS president David Crowe.
The most highly respected scientists and academicians debated the possibility that HIV-1, the most widespread and deadly human AIDS virus, evolved from accidental vaccine contaminations and subsequent transmissions to mostly African villagers.
Documented science virtually proves, through the process of elimination and a review of the most updated evidence, the origin of HIV/AIDS as an iatrogenic (i.e. man-made) outcome of specific vaccination experiments. Read Early Hepatitis B Vaccines and

2. ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE
What They Say:
Alzheimer’s is a degenerative brain disorder that gradually destroys a person’s memory and ability to learn, make judgments, communicate and carry out daily activities. As the disease progresses, patients may also experience changes in personality -- such as anxiety, suspiciousness or agitation -- as well as delusions or hallucinations. There isn't a cure yet, but as researchers gain more insight into the biology of the disease there is new hope for preventing the onset of the disease and treating it when it does occur. (See Reduce your risk for Alzheimer’s disease for some of the latest findings.)
What is Known:
There are a growing number of Clinicians and Scientists who are convinced that excitotoxins play a critical role in the development of several neurological disorders, including Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease.
Rabbits that drank distilled water did not develop an animal version of Alzheimer's disease, but when ordinary tap water containing copper was given to them, they did, said Dr. Larry Sparks of Sun Health Research Institute in Sun City, Arizona, who led the study.
"Copper is an essential nutrient but has also been implicated as an important factor in Alzheimer's disease," Sparks and Bernard Schreurs of West Virginia University wrote in their study, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
Mice fed junk food for nine months showed signs of developing the abnormal brain tangles strongly associated with Alzheimer's disease.
A great number of studies have shown that when you vaccinate an animal, the body’s inflammatory cytokines not only increase dramatically, but so do the brain’s inflammatory chemicals. Those who are prone to developing one a neurodegenerative disease, such as Alzheimer’s, will be at a drastically increased risk as we have seen experimentally when even animals exposed to subtoxic concentrations of environmental toxins and vaccinated develop neurologic worsening.

Gluten toxicity might act through inflammatory mechanisms or cross-reactivity with neurons. Gluten-sensitivity is a brain and nerve disease. Read Five Generations Harmed by Gluten.
Metal poisoning--a toxic accumulation of heavy metals in the soft tissues of the body also causes Alzheimer's.
Many kinds of nanoparticles enhance the formation of insoluble fibrous protein aggregates (amyloids), which are associated with human diseases including Alzheimer’s.
Dr. H.J. Roberts, a diabetic specialist and world expert on aspartame poisoning, has also written a book entitled "DEFENSE AGAINST ALZHEIMER' DISEASE." Dr. Roberts tells how aspartame is escalating Alzheimer's Disease, and indeed it is.
Aluminum is another major component in these aerosols. Although it is our planet's most abundant metal, our body has no biological need for it. Pesticide Action Network North America [PANNA] lists it as "toxic to humans, including carcinogenicity, reproductive and developmental toxicity, neurotoxicity, and acute toxicity." Yet, aluminum is commonly used [this is a very short list] in vaccines, deodorants and anti-perspirants, over-the-counter medications, soft drink and beer cans [aluminum leeches from the cans], baking powder, cake mixes, processed cheeses, and other food products and additives. Over the past decade, independent testing of Chemtrails around the country has shown a dangerous, extremely poisonous brew that includes: barium, nano aluminum-coated fiberglass [known as CHAFF].

3. THE COMMON COLD
What They Say:
With more than one billion cases in North America every year, the causes of 30 to 50 percent of adult colds -- presumed to be viral -- remain unidentified. We can't cure this nuisance, but we can often get through it with simple remedies such as bed rest, chicken soup and drinking plenty of fluids. Immune boosting supplements and foods are among the latest weapons in our arsenal, while safety concerns have led experts to warn against the use of over the counter medications for young children.
What is Known:
Conventional medicine and the pharmaceutical industry would have you believe that there is no "cure" for the common cold, that you should protect yourself against the flu with a vaccine that is laden with toxic chemicals, and that during the midst of a cold or flu, it is favorable to ease your discomfort with a variety of medications that can suppress your symptoms.
Unfortunately, all three of these positions represent a lack of understanding of what colds and flus really are, and what they mean to your body. Read What Most Doctors Won't Tell You About Colds and Flus.

4. AVIAN FLU
What They Say:
Our attention focussed on the "swine flu" this past year, but there are still fears this powerful bird flu virus -- officially known as Avian Influenza A or H5N1 -- could mutate into a strain that can be transmitted from person to person, or combine with human and swine strains. With no immunity to offer protection, nearly 60 percent of people who have contracted the virus died from it, regardless of their health or age. So far, nearly all of the people who become infected handled infected birds, but there still isn't a vaccine despite the fact that the virus has been on experts' radar for several years.
What is Known:
Investigative journalist Ida Honorof wrote, "the most brazen, obscene electioneering ploy" ever and added that it was proposed by the President "and his coterie of scientific hacks, fabricated to cause pure unadulterated panic and guarantee political capital, rammed through without consideration of people's health and lives and approved by a band-wagon Congress" eager to make the nation's "health" a bipartisan concern.
The above quote was not written about the avian flu epidemic but the 5 million swine-flu vaccine program of 30 years ago. The hastily contrived program for swine flu resulted in hundreds of Guillain Barre Syndrome paralysis victims as well as countless deaths for a flu pandemic that never materialized. Read Tired Of The Bird or Avian Flu Yet? Some Experts Claim It's A Hoax For Profit.
Last year, Czech newspapers questioned if the shocking discovery of vaccines contaminated with the deadly avian flu virus which were distributed to 18 countries by the American company Baxter were part of a conspiracy to provoke a pandemic. Read Speculations of Origins of Swine
Flu Proliferate Across Internet.
Just as there was no evidence of the avian flu virus mutating to cause a pandemic, there is also no evidence of any mutagenic process involved in the H1N1 swine flu virus. Talmage Holmes, a relationship manager for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Columbus, Ohio, states that pregnant women should not have any special worries. "Pregnant women are at no greater risk than others." says Dr. Holmes. "Until there has been mutation or re-assortment of the avian flu virus' genetic material, the risk to all humans is very low." Read Junk Science and Contradictions Dominate WHO Pandemic Statements and Policies
Despite any consequences, there's always a tremendous push by government and medical establishments to blindly vaccinate the public in the face of any outbreak of flu or disease. There is also the admission (from these same establishments) that every vaccine carries its own element of health risks. So if the intention is to protect public health by vaccinating, why is there never any intervention or policy on how to protect people from the vaccines themselves?

Risk To Your Health Than The Flu Itself and also 15 Important Reasons Why You Shouldn't Vaccinate Your Children Against The Flu.
In a move that can only be described as incredibly reckless, scientists at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control have been conducting experiments in which they infect ferrets with both the H1N1 swine virus and the H5N1 bird flu virus to see if they will "reassort" and create a new hybrid flu virus.

What They Say:
People diagnosed with this peculiar disorder have an insatiable urge to eat non-food substances like dirt, paper, glue and clay. As many as one third of children ages 1-6 exhibit this behaviour, but it also affects adults too -- especially pregnant women. Potential risks include exposure to toxins from ingesting unhealthy substances (like lead in paint) and bowel obstructions. While health experts believe pica may be linked to iron or zinc deficiency, the exact cause -- and cure -- have yet to be found.
What is Known:
Caused by nutritional deficiencies in the body. After the nutrient levels return to normal, the cravings stop. Malnutrition is identified in most cases of pica, which lends some weight to this assumption. Malnutrition is common among individuals that eat clay, and although medical tests were able to identify the iron deficiency, it is not clear whether pica was prompted by the deficiency or the inhibition of iron absorption caused by the iron ingestion led to the deficiency. However, many clinical reports reveal that iron supplementation is efficient in abolishing the food and non-food pica associated with an iron deficiency state.

Other Cravings Caused by Pica
An odd craving young children and adults often have is a craving for dirt. When the body receives poor nutrition, it's common for the body to have inadequate iron levels. Low iron levels (anemia) may cause an unusual craving for dirt. Clay cravings can be a result of anemia as well. Eating dirt is dangerous for children and adults because it can cause serious illness and lead poisoning. Pica treatment for dirt cravings would be to reestablish adequate iron levels.
Children and adults can experience a strong craving to chew on ice. A strong ice craving is often caused by an iron deficiency in the body. After iron levels have returned to normal the cravings usually stop. Ice cravings can cause serious damage to the teeth; therefore, it's important to seek Pica treatment for ice cravings.
Poor nutrition may cause a craving for wood, like mothballs or matches. This craving is another symptom of an iron deficiency. Charcoal can often be a craving of an iron deficiency as well. Injuries to the intestines, mouth, teeth, and esophagus can occur from eating wood and charcoal, making treatment for Pica absolutely essential.
Soaps is often an unusual craving for children and adults to have if they suffer from Pica because of the taste. Children and adults may crave soaps because of a zinc deficiency; however, iron deficiencies can also cause a craving for soaps. Soap cravings can lead to sores in the mouth and throat.
The most common cause of craving non-food items is an iron deficiency caused by a poor diet. It is important to discuss with a doctor unusual cravings. Some people are unable to absorb vital nutrients, which can result in the cravings. The list of non-food cravings is endless, but a few of the most common cravings include: paint, metal, chalks, dry rice, gasoline, paint thinner, toilet paper, rocks, and laundry detergent, and bleach.
If a person eats a non-food item, they are at risk of multiple health conditions. Their intestines can become blocked or they can become seriously ill. To reduce the risk of developing an iron deficiency, proper nutrition needs to include adequate consumption of red meats and have blood tested for anemia need to be conducted at least once a year.
