Warning: The diseases discussed in this book are brutal. The most difficult decision that I faced in preparing this work was whether to include images that demonstrate how brutal these diseases are. In the end, I chose to include graphic photographs of these diseases in hopes that it may help readers to avoid them. My reasoning was that if people could see what I have seen, they might be more motivated to take steps to avoid diseases before they develop. Some may be turned off or offended by these images. Please consider this before you buy this book. You have been warned ☺
