SYPHILIS is dangerous but it can be cured.
You can't tell whether you've got it or not unless you have a blood test.
It's easy to cure if you start in time.
The longer you have it the harder it is to cure.
Medicine, salves and root remedies WILL NOT cure SYPHILIS.
You catch it mostly through sex contact for syphilis spreads from man to woman and woman to man.
Babies are born with syphilis because their mothers had it and did not find out and get treatment.
It causes blindness, insanity, heart trouble and many other serious illnesses.
