Like the bubonic plague and a type of food poisoning. Have you seen this?<br><br>
There was an article on MSNBC.com: <a href="http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/18705326/" target="_blank">http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/18705326/</a><br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">
<div class="smallfont" style="margin-bottom:2px;">Quote:</div>
<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">These new results do not mean people should go out and get infected with herpes, Virgin stressed. They probably already are. Nearly all humans become infected with multiple herpes virus family members during childhood. These germs not only include the herpes simplex viruses, which lead to cold sores and possibly genital herpes, but also the diseases responsible for chickenpox and "mono," as well as several less well-known ailments.</td>

This is just another example of how ridiculous the varicella vaccine is. I was just reading in <i>The Vaccine Guide</i> about how the purpose of VV is to avoid parents missing an average of 1 day of work to care for a child with chickenpox. What about the costs associated with adverse vaccine reactions, adults getting chickenpox and having complications, other medical care required due to a weakened immune system, etc?? Who comes up with the logic that sells these vaccines to legislators, and why do they buy into it? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:<br><br>
Just wanted to see what others' thoughts are on this herpes/bacterial immunity connection. I am stricken with herpes simplex and am constantly afraid of giving it to DD. But you know, I have found it has an upside even before reading this article... I have learned to avoid getting sun on my face, get too stressed out or go without enough sleep, and to recognize when I am not taking care of myself because I have had a cold sore pop up and let me know when I am run down. I hardly ever get them now that I am so good at identifying and avoiding triggers.

Well, that shoots down my plans for Saturday night....But I must say it is <i>so perfect</i> that a virologist studying herpes is named "Skip Virgin" that is almost reverses the craptacular day I am having. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
Aside from that, I have no comment, but I'll give this a bump as no one has responded. And I couldn't pass up the "Skip Virgin" thing.

It doesn't surprise me at all, if it really is true. Why medical science acts like it can get one up on an organism it doesn't fully understand mystifies me.

Not all that surprising to me but a refreshing thread to read. I read a theory/study regarding the belief that having chickenpox and many other childhood ailments we vaccinate against actually strenghten our immune systems and make it possible for us to 'help' ward off cancers and such as we get older.<br><br>
I would be curious to know if people who had a good dose of chickenpox as children are healthier than those that did not...a hard study to do given that likely all have been pumped full of harmful vaccines any way.<br><br>
I have to believe that nature truly does have a plan when it comes to these things...and this would be one of those unique little ways Mother Nature protects us on her own!
