Is there a link between Alzheimer’s disease and a virus?


By Ken Buben, President, Fancy Scrubs.com

The news broke about Alzheimer’s Disease and a possible link to a virus – the common virus, herpes simplex 1 (HSV-1).  Alzheimer’s disease is believed to cause loss of memory due to many reasons; brain disease,  autoimmune disease, genetics – from a specific gene and now possibly a virus. The connection with Alzheimer’s disease is the herpes virus can affect the brain cells.

Scientists have found that the genetic/viral link can connect to the Alzheimer’s disease and canker sores. The virus that causes herpes, HSV-1, is permanent, contagious and transmitted through oral contact such as kissing or using toothbrush of another person. Herpes are fluid-filled blisters that appear in or around the mouth and a length of approximately 7 to 10 days and can be treated; some are used topically and others are taken orally. Cold sores are best treated as early as possible.

To avoid getting the virus avoid direct contact with a herpes infected patient including touching, sharing of a drinking glass, cigarette, etc.  To stay protected in a hospital setting or health care facility – wash your hands thoroughly and get medical uniform protection today.
