Germs that cause chronic illnesses
The germs that cause heart disease and potbelly syndrome are as common as dirt. There's nothing strange or exotic about them. They include:
- Adenoviruses. These viruses are linked to pinkeye, colds, and obesity.
- Borna Disease Virus (BDV). BDV is linked to obesity and mental disorders.
- Borrelia Burgdorferi. Get more information at: www.lymediseaseassociation.org
- Chlamydophila pneumoniae (CPN). CPN is not very famous, yet, but I believe it is one of the most dangerous germs on the planet. You can learn why at www.cpnhelp.org and www.potbellysyndrome.com⁄attach⁄CPN.pdf.
- Cell-wall deficient (CWD) bacteria. CWDs have been linked to many chronic illnesses. (See link at left.)
- Herpes viruses. Our infectious burdens nearly always include a few herpes viruses, especially cytomegalovirus (CMV). You can get more information from the American Herpes Foundation (AHF) at: www.herpes-foundation.org⁄
- Helicobacter pylori (Hp). Hp is famous for causing ulcers and cancer. The Helicobacter Foundation was has more information at: www.helico.com⁄
- Hepatitis C virus (HCV). The Hepatitis Foundation International (HFI) provides information about hepatitis viruses at: www.hepfi.org⁄
- Periodontal bacteria. Some of the germs that cause gum disease have been liked to heart disease.
Note: Chlamydophila pneumoniae (CPN) used to be called Chlamydia pneumoniae, and it is a distant cousin of the sexually-transmitted Chlamydia trachomatis (CTR). CPN and CTR are very different germs, but doctors still get them mixed up because of the similar names.
