  1. I’m very lucky to have come in contact with Dr IGUDIA on YouTube in curing my Syphilis disease. I almost gave up in life but after using his herbal medication I feel just like every normal human and I’m so grateful

  2. Some very sloppy history, The fall of Rome is estimated at 476 CE, yet the Justinian Plague did not start until 541 CE. As far as the Byzantine Empire, it lasted for almost another 900 years until the Ottomans conquered Constantinople in 1453.

  3. I was diagnosed of herpes virus 2, I have tried all possible means to get cure but all my effort proved abortive, until a friend of mine introduced me to a herbal doctor called Dr.okougbo who prepare herbal medicine to cure all kind of diseases and virus including herpes virus (Herpes), when i contacted this herbal doctor via email, he sent me herpes virus herbal medicine via courier service, when i received the herbal medicine he gave me step by step instructions on how to apply it, when i applied it as instructed i was totally cured from the virus within 2 weeks of usage the herbal medicine. Contact this great herbal doctor today to get your cure. 
    Via Email:  [email protected]gmail.com or WhatApp: +2349032690878, THANKS ONCE AGAIN DR.OKOUGBO  ,.

  4. I'm pretty sure that smallpox did not decimate the native Americans. Decimate means to kill 10%. The conservative estimate for death toll is 30%, and the upper bound is approximately 90%.

    Other than that, great video so far. I'm 34 seconds in. I still have hope for the remainder. Let's roll xD

  5. This is a promise I made to Dr Madida that if he can cure me of my Human papilloma virus  that I will tell everyone about his great herbal service and truly he cured me with his herbal medications. Dr Madida is truly a great herbal healer.

  6.

  11. HIV continues to be a major global public health issue, having claimed almost 33 million lives so far. However, with increasing access to effective HIV prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care, including for opportunistic infections, HIV infection has become a manageable chronic health condition, enabling people living with HIV to lead long and healthy lives. There were an estimated 38.0 million people living with HIV at the end of 2019. As a result of concerted international efforts to respond to HIV, coverage of services has been steadily increasing. In 2019, 68% of adults and 53% of children living with HIV globally were receiving lifelong antiretroviral therapy (ART). A great majority (85%) of pregnant and breastfeeding women living with HIV also received ART, which not only protects their health, but also ensures prevention of HIV transmission to their newborns.
