'Pathogenic' viruses do not exist

James McCumiskey Wexford, Ireland

It is a truth universally acknowledged that pathogenic viruses exist. These viruses allegedly cause terrible diseases such as mumps, measles, rubella, AIDS and swine flu. But what if these pathogenic viruses do not exist? What if no scientist has ever purified or isolated these alleged pathogenic viruses from the host cells?

New blood test shows all the viruses you've ever been infected with

Chances are, you don't know all the viruses you've encountered throughout your life. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could just find out? According to a new study in Science, researchers have devised a blood test that can do just that by identifying the viruses that your immune system has fought in the past. The test is in its infancy, but it’s already giving us some insight into just how similar people’s immune systems are — despite the large geographic distances that can separate them.

HUMANS HAVE "IMMUNOLOGICAL MEMORY"

How Do I Protect My Family From Foodborne Illnesses?

Sanjay Gupta, Jun 1, 2016
Nearly 50 million Americans get sick every year from eating food contaminated with bacteria, parasites, or viruses. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 128,000 of these cases require hospitalization and 3,000 result in death.

Microbes and Alzheimer’s Disease

IOS Press, 8 March 2016
We are researchers and clinicians working on Alzheimer’s disease (AD) or related topics, and we write to express our concern that one particular aspect of the disease has been neglected, even though treatment based on it might slow or arrest AD progression.

HIV, the New Chronic Illness

Rebecca Kreston | November 24, 2015
Just thirty-odd years ago, a HIV diagnosis was a death sentence. Advances in pharmaceuticals and in our understanding of the mechanisms of HIV infection mean that today it is a manageable, chronic disease on par with diabetes, hypertension, and cardiovascular disease.

Children with strange gene mutation found to possess 'super' immunity to viruses


Some interesting discoveries in the area of gene encoding are generating fresh buzz within the scientific community. A new study recently published in The New England Journal of Medicine has identified a rare type of gene mutation in some humans that appears to confer "super" immunity to viruses, a finding that some scientists hope will lead to breakthroughs in the fight against infectious diseases.
