Why there are so many weird diseases and syndromes in humans but not in animals?

Chimps share like 98% of our DNA right? but you dont see a monkey with Down syndrome or asma, are they better biologicaly?

    There are probably millions more disorders in animals, but we can't communicate like them and develop a sense of normalcy in animals. Also, keep in mind that humans are some of the most complex animals on the planet (genetically).

    Animals can and do get many diseases and syndromes, "wierd" or not. They can't tell us thier symptoms so we don't know hen they do get sick half the time and also what they have. Humans seem to get more diseases because we can treat so many of them that others take their place. For example, hundreds of years ago, so many people died from diseases like the plague, smallpox, influenza, and measles, for starters, that diseases like cancer, diabetes, and heart disease didn't have a chance to slowly harm or kill the sufferers and people lived a lot shorter lives. As with animals, they don't live long enough to develop many genetic and/ or rare diseases, and we don't research them enough to know about them. Many ailments we humans suffer from would not be known if we couldn't describe the symptoms and undergo high-tech diagnostics and treatments.

    Becasue the monkeys don;t get medical care and the ones with sickness or other deseases just die.

    If there were no doctors for people, you would see the same thing with us.

    There are animal versions of nearly every human disease. The reason we see more diseases in humans is because there are billions of humans, and most of them see doctors when they are sick.

    We see more diseases on humans than animals because our diet is different than theirs.

    because animals got more important things to worry about like who's gonna eat them or who's gonna bite their heads off for dinner

    animals do not smoke or drink alcohol and they surely don't travel around the world spreading disease.
