You suffer needlessly and the side effects cause slow permanent damage to your body, particularly your heart. If your eyes are involved it can distort your vision and alter your physical appearance.

Its not going to kill you quickly....it takes its time and tortures you along the way.

Why would you NOT want to treat it?
