Syphilis. A word we all brand as disgusting and very controversial but do we really know what it is? Well, i would be very pleased to share a thing or two about what i know about it.

Its generally a sexually transmitted disease or STD and it is most common is urban areas where promiscuity is a necessity like the metropolitan cities and downtown areas. It is caused by Treponema Spirochete, something i totally forgot about. lol Anyways, it can also be transmitted at birth or when a baby is delivered from a syphilis-positive mother. Hell, no way the famous people and celebrities with syphilis that im going to disclose are using this as an excuse. haha!

Well, so much for my ado, i know youre just after the names and not the technicality of the disease so here are the names i found out that was proven and some were allegedly syphilis-positive.
