    am i the only one that didn't find that video disturbing at all?

    Anyway, yeah theres a cure. Like someone else said, it involves multiple vaccinations in your stomach. If you get treatment fast enough, no one dies from rabies. Its like a venomous snake bite or syphylis...it'll kill you if you don't do anything about it

    i didn't find it disturbing...

    i'm still glad i live in england though, rabies isn't a problem here, as england is more or less a big island.

    i'm also glad that i've been vaccinated against it

    The shots aren't in the stomach anymore, so it's a far less painful experience. If you wait until the onset of symptoms, your chances for survival go to 1 in however many have contracted rabies. Very poor odds.

    As I understand it the shots are in the arm now. As for the vaccine you get before exposure to the disease it only gives you a longer period to recieve treatment and reduces the number of injections needed it does not give you long term protection like many vaccines.

    The video was disturbing but many diseases are very disturbing in their final stages. Many diseases are even more visually disturbing than rabies when they finally reach their final stages.

    As an odd side note does anyone know where I can see a video of Kuru(laughing death)? I know Gajdusek shot a video when he was studying the disease but I have never seen it. I have had a strange yet morbid facination with spongy encephalopathies after reading Deadly Feasts by Rhodes. If anyone knows of a video of this please pass it along to me.

    what are they?
    I seem to also have a morbid curiosity when it comes to diseases, like small pox, but mostly neurological ones such as rabies
