I did a quick search on the web and found several things:
First - Not much info on "Let's Live" magazine except its a natural health magazine dedicated to natural organic living, so you can guess where their agenda is.
Second - According to the World Health Organization, there were an estimated 1,150,000 active cases of leprosy in the world with several hundred thousand new cases a year. See WHO Epiedmiological Record, June 6, 1997 on the WHO home page.
It sure sounds like "Let's Live" has a polical agenda!!!
