The War Against Mumps
Most people with mumps recuperate from the illness in a couple of weeks, but more significant complications can occur rarely. It is a highly contagious disease caused by infection with a virus. It is not a very common childhood infection but there are still occasional outbreaks in South Africa. It is a highly preventable disease because of the effectiveness of the MMR (mumps, measles, and rubella) vaccine. It is usually a mild disease in children, but adults may have more serious disease with complications.
Mumps develop on both kids and adults. They can also cause miscarriage in pregnant women. They are the result of toxic mucus accumulations in the body. It is very real, and has been used for the past thirty years to create and maintain colossal medical information systems. It is contagious but it can be prevented with the help of MMR vaccine. They are easily spread by airborne droplets from the upper respiratory tract. In rare cases, they will attack other groups of salivary glands instead of the parotids.
