Toxoplasmosis is a parasitic disease caused by the parasite Toxoplasma gondii. It infects most animals and causes human parasitic diseases, but the primary host is the felid (Cat family). People usually get infected by eating raw or undercooked meat, or more rarely, by contact with cat faeces.
AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome or Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome, rarely written Aids) is a disease characterized by the destruction of the human immune system. It stands today as a global epidemic, that originated in sub-Saharan Africa during the twentieth century. Although there are treatments to hinder the progress of AIDS, there is yet no known cure or vaccine.
