Presidential Diseases – Diseases of the Presidents of the United States

This is one of the stranger sites on the ‘net, not for the content – which is mildly interesting – but because of the exuberance with which it encourages you to Find out what diseases you have in common with the leaders of the free world!

For their own sakes, I hope that no readers can go toe to toe with Andrew Jackson (Sword wound, smallpox, depression, gunshot wound, malaria, dysentery, frequent headaches, tuberculosis, edema (dropsy), heart failure) I would also expect that no readers (present tense) can compare ailments with Lincoln, McKinley and Kennedy’s fatal gunshot wound. I’m sure a fair number could sympathise with the handful who “suffered” from hair loss, but is that considered a disease, now?
