The common Herpes Simplex (cold sore) virus is an example of this. It waits in the body until conditions are right for it to emerge. Viruses often stay in the body, or ‘outside on the balcony’ just waiting for an opportunity to thrive on a weakened life form.
With the world a much smaller place than it has ever been, there is unprecedented opportunity for bacteria, viruses and parasites to travel and infect widely. Combined with the overuse of antibiotics helping to create ‘super-bugs’ this creates a situation where our immune systems need all the help they can get. We have evolved organisms proliferating that have never, until now, existed in nature.
Hospitals that you visit ‘to get better’ may be the centre of powerful, mutating germs that are resistant to all known medical treatments. The wonder-working antibiotics of the 1940’s and 50’s have created monsters for the 21st Century in the form of super-bugs that are so far proving to be cleverer than mankind. The S.A.R.S. breakout from China is a wake-up call concerning super-bugs. The human tendency to ‘meddle’ with nature, mostly in the hope of improving it often gives rise to even worse problems in the process.
