Cockroaches live in well-concealed places, and move in habitats where they may become contaminated with various pathogenic organisms:

salmonellosis, tuberculosis, dysentery, bubonic plague, rabies, gastro-enteritis, typhoid, poliomyelitis, etc.

Roaches can carry rabies and rabid dogs too!

Roaches that can afford apartments in the city are often found in weight rooms and spas bulking up and developing some incredible tone and sculpting! It is more than true that today

You are wrong. That was the only source which stated that rabies can be transmitted from roaches - and this very credible source is a marketing tool for a company selling - anti-roach products.

Try to check out links which end at .gov or .edu. I did, but I lost my original post due to computer breakdown, however it stated that cockroaches have not been associated with large-scale disease outbreaks. Moreover, if roaches carried rabies, then you would have the govt pest fighting unit out, every time a roach dropping was spotted.
