Today I discussed an article about the connectin between HSV-1 (cold sores only) and Alzheimer's. Some of the articles were confusing and but they seem to state that HSV-1 particles are found in Alzheimer patients and are a big link to the plaques that develop in the mind. I added a link: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/dr-da...heimers-herpes-could-be-a-cause_b_814047.html This is scary but I still know I am confused about alot of the facts and hoping someone can shed light on the issue. I know HSV-1 is not the main cause but I think they are saying it can heighten the chances of someone already predisposed to Alzheimer and people with recurrent outbreaks are at higher risk than those who just have the virus without OB's. Or is this all just a theory?
