Why is acute hemorrhagic conjunctivitis called Apollo 11 disease?
The Apollo 11 Moon Landing was a world-wide event, (just as Americans know exactly where they were and what they were doing when John F Kennedy was assasinated), most of the world watched the Apollo Moon Landing. So when Acute Hemorrhagic Conjunctivitis suddenly emerged in Ghana, West Africa at the same time of the Apollo 11 moon landing, it was nicknamed "Apollo 11" disease. In West Africa, the disease is still referred to as "Apollo."

Answer . Chronic diseases are those which have a prolonged duration and pain perception may not be severe e.g. arthritis. Acute disease have sudden onset and degree of pain is to a severe extent.
An acute disease (as opposed to chronic disease) is medically defined as an adverse condition that appears suddenly, progresses rapidly, and is of relatively short duration .. For example, acute bronchitis usually presents itself over a course of less than a week and usually can be cured within …a week. Chronic bronchitis usually comes on during a period of years of respiratory damage and is usually a permanent condition. Acute pain appears suddenly and is soon alleviated, while chronic pain goes on for a lengthy period of time.. Occasionally the term "subacute" is used for a condition that is not lengthy enough to be considered chronic but is more drawn out than what is typically considered acute.. Often people get the mistaken impression that "acute" and "severe" are the same; but a condition can be acute without being severe, and can be severe even though chronic. ( Full Answer )

Article from THE PHILIPPINE STAR: The reported cause of actor Rico Yan's(Filipino celebrity)death is nightmare or bangungot. Medical investigators in China , Japan and several Asian countries who performed autopsies on persons who died from 'acute hemorrhagic pancreatitis' found out that the majorit…y of them had eaten NOODLES as their supper. This was a startling finding.However, it wasn't the noodles that caused nightmares but DEHYDRATION. Imbibing even with a few drinks of alcohol or just eating noodles immediately before bedtime compound this on an empty stomach will trigger an electrolyte imbalance and other factors that causes a person to dehydrate or lose water.It is therefore advisable for a person to take several glasses of water before bedtime if he had a few or several alcoholic drinks. Avoid eating noodles before bedtime, but if you can not avoid it, allow at least two hours for the body to digest the noodles before hitting the sack and drink plenty of water.The most important thing is, never go thirsty when going to bed and be sure you have plenty of water during your 8-hour rest..

Most of the huge Saturn V rocket used in the Apollo 11 mission was destroyed. This was all planned as most of the rocket ship was just a container for the enormous amount of fuel necessary for the mission. The only parts that actually went to the moon were the command module, the service module and …the lunar module... altogether not much bigger than a bus - all that remained from a Saturn V rocket ship that was over 360ft in height.. The base of the Lunar module is still resting on the moon, on the Apollo 11 landing site after acting as a launchpad for the lunar module on its return from the moon. The lunar module itself was crashlanded on the surface after it was dispensed with. The service module was detached from the command module on entry to the earth's atmosphere and burned up on re-entry into the atmosphere. The command module, containing the 3 astronauts, was the only part to return. This is now on display at the National Air and Space Museum, Washington DC, USA. ( Full Answer )
