A public information video regarding the Assassin bug (a.k.a. the “Kissing” bug) has been posted on the Nameless.tv Facebook account and it has many people talking. The video is comprised of photos of the bug together with details on where it’s most heavily concentrated in the US and what the threat is that it can carry.
Chagas disease is traditionally recognized as a tropical parasitic disease, and its known to be spread by the Assassin bug. Its symptoms can change throughout the course of infection, if contracted, and can range from fever, headaches, and swollen lymph nodes to local swelling at the location of a bite by such a bug. After 8–12 weeks of carrying the infection, some individuals can enter the chronic phase of Chagas disease, however in 60–70 percent, it fails to produce further symptoms. The extremely strange part, however, is that in the other 30 to 40 percent of people carrying it, it can develop into further symptoms 10-30 years afterward, including an enlargement of the heart ventricles, leading to possible heart failure.
