Cold Sores & Brain Damage

I just read an article posted on www.bottomlinepublications.com which reports that “There’s growing evidence that Alzheimer’s may be caused by the herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV1), the same virus that causes fever blisters or cold sores on the face and mouth.”

I don’t want to believe that a simple cold sore can cause so much damage.

The article goes on to say that “It is not believed to be caused by the other herpes simplex virus—HSV2, genital herpes, which is transmitted sexually.” I'm not sure if that's good news or bad news. Since I don't have herpes, does that mean I'm lined up to get more bad brain tumor news? Or, if you have had HSV2, etc. you have a chance of even more horrible problems?

Another question that popped into my mind was "How would this happen?"  According to the article, “HSV1 attacks the immune system, particularly the peripheral nervous system. Once it has attacked, it never leaves the body but lies dormant and occasionally reactivates, causing a flare-up of blisters or enlarged lymph nodes, especially when set off by a trigger, such as stress or fatigue.”

 
Interestingly, or perhaps disturbingly, there is also a lengthy conversation on ABTA’s Inspire web site that tosses in sun overexposure into the conversation about the connection between cold sores and brain tumors: http://www.inspire.com/groups/american-brain-tumor-association/discussion/quick-survey/?ref=as&asat=78099999

Since I am a melanoma cancer survivor, this just adds fuel to my late-night worries.

One victim wrote that “I was told when I was first diagnosed that there is about a 20% higher incidence in Brain Tumors in the Southeast US. I was also recently told at Duke University that airline pilots used to have a higher rate of brain tumors also. I know that I personally was both a Lifeguard and a sun worshiper, I got a really bad sunburn in college once, on my face and lips and have had many, many years of cold sores, just about every year for twenty years or so.”

My reaction to this is that we are all searching for an answer to the question of “Why did I/my spouse/my child/my loved one get this nasty, unforgiving, relentless and criminally powerful tumor?” And in that quest, we will leave no stone unturned, no rumor un-investigated and no fact un-dissected.

Millions of people worldwide suffering from this devastating illness and most of them don't know that they have it.

Hey all! I'm also suffering from this disease called herpes. And living with herpes is so hard. Yes It is true that you will suppress the symptoms of herpes by using pills and medicines but the risk of transfer to any other person still occurs. This disease is the worst disease i had.

Cold sores are more detrimental than people want to believe. As herpes simplex, it is the same thing that's on people's genitals. But, people say "it's just a cold sore" and try to make you seem like a big baby when you are wary of catching it. Here's some free information on cold sores/herpes. https://krystalbrownblog.wordpress.com/2016/03/27/fewer-and-more-comfortable-cold-sore-outbreaks-at-every-price-range/

Three weeks the HERPES that was in my body got vanished and my
body was smooth like a new born baby and i said to myself i will
always share this testimony so that many who are into different
kind of situation like:
1. Getting your lover or husband back
2. Money spell

HIS WEBSITE: http://draramideherbalcure.wordpress.com/contact/

I have been dating for almost 7 years until i contracted GENITAL HERPES VIRUS from my Ex-boyfriend who never told me he was having it.Ever since then i have been searching for cure everywhere because i was feeling so uncomfortable having so many outbreaks, Most people have herpes in one form or another, i was first taking Antiviral medicines such as acyclovir (Zovirax), famciclovir (Famvir), and valacyclovir (Valtrex), which are recommended for treating primary genital herpes outbreaks..But i needed to get rid of it completely, I came across so many testimonies online speaking about cure to herpes. i was so eager to be completely cured, I became a victim of fraud after contacting several so-called herbal doctors i was referred to. I lost a lot of money but i didn't stop searching for a cure.
Then one faithful day,i came across a testimony of a lady saying that she got her Genital herpes cured by a GREAT HERBAL DOCTOR she called Dr. Aramide by contacting him through his email address. And she advised anyone with GENITAL HERPES or SIMPLEX HERPES to contact him for HERBAL CURE. I contemplated for about 4 hours whether or not to contact him. Then something inside of me told me to give a try. I then contacted him through his email and told my problems to him. He told me all the things I needed to do and also gave me instructions to follow, Which i did properly. Just within the 7 days of drinking and applying the herbal medication he sent to me through DHL delivery service, I started feeling changes in my body i went to my medical doctor for check-up, I was so happy when he told me i was no more having GENITAL HERPES VIRUS and that i was free, It was all tears of Joy from that moment, I never thought ROOTS & HERBS could cure HERPES and if i could ever meet a GENUINELY GREAT HERBAL DOCTOR. I'm so grateful to him. i am completely free from GENITAL HERPES VIRUS,i recommended him to a family friend having Simplex Herpes virus, He called me and told me he is also cured completely. I promised to share my own testimony like that of the lady on the internet. If you are also having
