.....Syphilis - if left untreated can and will cause cardiac and brain infections........

Interesting fact. I thought folks lived there because they had brain infections already

Google what tertiary syphilis did to Scarface Al Capone.

The Feds released him from Alcatraz early because he was already too mentally incapacitated from syphilis to be a threat to society any more.

Capone spent his final days at his estate fishing in his swimming pool.

Humorous thought...

Syphilis has several stages - Primary - Secondary and Tertiary ... and seems to go dormant in-between...

Ignoring the Primary and Secondary stages - which is fairly easy to do since the signs and symptoms in the first two stages are not dramatically noticeable - one can go through life and not figure it out... But the Tertiary Stage will ‘get ‘ya.’

Many famous people of the 1600 - 1700 and 1800s lived and died with Syphilis infecting their hearts and brains...
