Oxymoron of the Year: Asymptomatic Disease


Surely the most despicable/Orwellian change of language is the oxymoron that is an 'asymptomatic disease'. No matter how many people I try and explain this to, they just don't seem to get it. Leaving pre-symptomatic infection to one side, a disease, or malaise, is the symptoms someone is suffering from. If you have no symptoms, you have no disease.
