"Another DNA virus group, the herpes virus, has been shown to have oncogenic potential, causing many types of cancers. The papilloma virus is the cause of cervical carcinoma. Among the RNA viruses and retroviruses, evidence is accumulating that links these viruses to breast cancer as well as leukemias, lipomas, fibrosarcomas, and osteosarcomas. Two cancer theories propose the involvement of oncoviruses."

"Hypericin and pseudohypericin exert effects against a wide spectrum of other viruses as well, including influenza virus, herpes simplex virus types I and II, sindbis virus, poliovirus, retrovirus infection in vitro and in vivo, murine cytomegalovirus, and hepatitis C.*-^'-^^ The mechanisms by which the 2 components exert their antiviral effects do not seem to be interruption of transcription, translation, or viral protein transport, but some unconventional mechanisms. Recent reports find that exposure of hypericin to fluorescent light markedly increases its antiviral activity."

"The Rotavirus, Norwalk virus, Cytomegalovirus (CMV), and Sapovirus, among others, can cause gastroenteritis. Viral gastroenteritis (characterized by watery diarrhea) is common worldwide and is easily transmitted by sharing drinks, food, eating utensils, or even toys, bottles, and pacifiers in the case of young children. You can also become ill by eating or drinking a product previously contaminated by a virus. Food can become contaminated as a result of unsanitary practices (e.g."

"When a mechanism known as a toll-like receptor (TLR) recognizes the invaders, it causes direct antimicrobial (anti-germ) activity by stimulating the action of peptide proteins that bind to and kill viruses (including the AIDS virus?HIV) bacteria and fungi.73 77146 The peptides are called cathelicidins, and the human cathelicidin is known as LL-37. The TLR's also activate LL-37 after it is produced.120 Cathelicidins break down cell walls of viruses and bacteria78 and may also destroy viruses without cell walls."

"Infectivity of Hormonal Milk The stressing effect in cows of synthetic hormones and somatomedins may induce immunosuppression and activate latent viruses, such as bovine leukosis virus (BLV) and bovine immunodeficiency virus (BIV), which may well increase susceptibility to other infectious agents. Levels of such viruses in hormonally treated milk and their human infectivity should be investigated with particular reference to risks of immunosuppression and leukemia."

"If for some reason a virus has made contact with a cell, but its presence is not beneficial to the body, the virus will be destroyed by the cell's defense mechanisms or the general immune system. Viruses do not help cells mutate into cancer cells, unless this is in the best interest of the body. We should not fall into the trap of misinterpreting this to be an act of self-destruction. It is important to recall at this point that cancer is not a disease but a survival mechanism that occurs only when all other protective measures have failed."

"These usually include: • a bacterium or virus that infects the organism so that the invading gene can become established—such as tumefaciens or E. coli; • a marker virus to determine if the invasion is successful—such as cauliflower mosaic virus; and • an antibiotic to heal any wounds the invasion causes—such as streptomycin. This untested cocktail of antibiotics, bacteria, and viruses along with the transgenic gene is shot into the seeds or into the animal embryo."

"This doesn't happen in all cases, however In some women who are infected, the virus is unable to get a sufficiently strong foothold to move into the deadly phase of its mission. 'The goal of the papillomavirus is not to create cancer, but to alter allegiances,' says Ewald. 'In the precancerous state, the virus causes the cells to divide at a level that is too high for the good of the body; but that cellular reproduction is good for the virus because it can replicate along with the cells, with little exposure to immune surveillance."
- Jacky Law, Big Pharma: Exposing the Global Healthcare Agenda (Get the book.)

"Acyclovir is phosphory-lated (a phosphate group is added to the molecule) by the viral enzyme thymidine kinase and then incorporated into the DNA chain of the herpes virus, where it blocks DNA synthesis and therefore replication of the virus. Acyclovir is generally well tolerated but can cause headache, nausea, vomiting, or abdominal pain. More serious side effects include confusion and hallucinations, but these are rare. It also can rarely cause kidney damage."

"One early (1986) grassroots volume for and by AIDS patients, for example, had this to say: We believe that the AIDS virus particularly strikes individuals and groups who have been isolated by the dominant culture. ... It is this isolation, often internalized as self-hatred or lack of self-acceptance, which allows the AIDS virus to begin to incubate once it has entered the system. ... It is no coincidence that the rise of AIDS has to a large extent coincided with the recent upsurge of right-wing political and religious repression of gays."

"GARDASIL The human papillomavirus (HPV), a virus that is spread by unprotected sexual intercourse, affects more than half of the world's population. HPV can cause genital warts and in rare cases cervical cancer. Of those who are infected, however, 95% are asymptomatic and never know they have HPV. Although almost all cases of cervical cancer are caused by HPV, HPV is ubiquitous and it is uncommon for HPV to progress to cervical cancer. Cervical cancer kills four thousand women per year, only one tenth the death rate of breast cancer, for example. That means that about 0."

"A healthy liver and immune system are perfectly able to destroy viral material, regardless of whether the virus has been picked up from the external environment or has entered the bloodstream in some other way. The majority of all people exposed to these viruses never fall ill. In fact, we all have most viruses that exist outside the body in our body right now. However, when large amounts of gallstones are present, the liver becomes congested and toxic, which turns it into a conducive environment for viral activity."

"Interferon is a complex protein that is produced by cells in response to a virus (or bacteria) and inhibits virus development. Natural killer (NK) cells are lymphocytes that lack B-cell and T-cell receptors. They are designed to kill certain mutant and virus-infected cells. Helper cells activate the production of antibodies by B cells. Stress and the Immune System Chronic stress suppresses the ability of the immune system to do its job. This is in contrast to acute stress. The difference between acute (shortlived) stress and chronic (ongoing) stress must be recognized."

"These medications are neuraminidase inhibitors that prevent replication of influenza A and B viruses by interfering with the production and release of the virus from cells that line the respiratory tract. To be useful, they both need to be taken within 48 hours of the onset of flu symptoms. Tamiflu has been approved for treatment of the flu in children over the age of one and for prevention of the flu in patients over age thirteen. Side effects of both medications include swelling of the sinuses, diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting. Patients with asthma or COPD may experience breathing problems."

"These viruses and others can also infect pancreatic beta cells, causing the white blood cells to attack and destroy the beta cells in an attempt to kill the virus. Gastrointestinal virus infections may also increase the gut permeability and enhance the antibody response to dietary bovine insulin as a result of increased absorption of the intact protein. Remember that in animal experiments, intact proteins were more likely to create type 1 diabetes than partially digested proteins."

It is activated by excess NF kappaB production.742743 4) Human papillomavirus (HPV), a commonly sexually transmitted viral infection that can lead to cervical cancer, actively promotes excess NF kappaB.744 5) The Kaposi's sarcoma herpes virus induces problems by excessively activating NF kappaB."

Among the RNA viruses and retroviruses, evidence is accumulating that links these viruses to breast cancer as well as leukemias, lipomas, fibrosarcomas, and osteosarcomas. Two cancer theories propose the involvement of oncoviruses. One infers that exogenous viral infection occurs and that reverse transcriptase (reversing the genetic pathway code between RNA and DNA) is required to integrate the viral genome into the host genome."

"Later he joked that he got the virus from his computer. In effect, that is what happened. His computer became contaminated with a virus, which erased the hard drive—and all his files. As you can imagine, my friend experienced psychological stress from this event. The stress weakened his immune system, and his body became vulnerable to infection—in this case, the flu. So, while the computer did not literally pass on its virus, it did have an effect on his immune system, paving the road for a biological viral attack."

"HUMAN PAPILLOMAVIRUS (HPV): Women who had an increased consumption of beta-cryptoxanthin and lutein/zeaxanthin, and increased intake of vitamin C, had lower rates of infection by HPV, the cervical cancer virus, according to one research study. The researchers concluded that women who consumed at least one papaya (rich in all of the aforementioned nutrients) or more per week had lower risk of contracting the HPV infection than those who didn't. BURN/WOUND-HEALING: Russian scientists have found that the antioxidants and natural enzymes in papaya can accelerate the healing of burns and wounds."

"Viruses that infest drinking water include Hepatitis A and the Norwalk virus, which is reported to cause more than 20 percent of all outbreaks of waterborne disease in the United States. Many of the unidentifiable causes of waterborne disease may be attributable to viruses. Most water treatment plants were not designed to remove viruses, and treatment designed to reduce bacteria does not necessarily eliminate viruses as well."

"All women should have a Pap smear every year to monitor HPV (human papilloma virus), which is associated with cervical cancer. During menopause, ask your doctor to take an HPV culture at the time of your Pap smear. If it is negative for high-risk strains of the virus, and you have never had a problem with HPV or abnormal smears, Pap smears can be reduced to every two to three years—as long as you have a stable sex life (that is, a monogamous sex partner whom you trust.) If you have had a hysterectomy and no longer have a cervix, you do not need Pap smears."

"The best products for preventing gastrointestinal virus infection may be those containing Bifidobacteria longum BB536. This special strain of Bifidobacteria was originally isolated from the intestinal tract of a healthy infant and developed in Japan by the Morinaga Milk Industry Company. Detailed studies have shown it to colonize the human gas- Rotavirus—a Major Cause of GI Infection rvotavirus infection accounts for about 45 percent of severe diarrheal diseases in infants and young children in both developed and developing nations."

"You can also become ill by eating or drinking a product previously contaminated by a virus. Food can become contaminated as a result of unsanitary practices (e.g. handling of food products without first washing hands) or from shellfish contaminated with viruses through contact with untreated sewage. Water systems affected by sewage can also pollute public drinking water and, in this manner, viruses can be transmitted to people. How Do I Avoid These Harmful Organisms? Your body is subjected to a massive amount of toxins caused by various intestinal invaders every day!"

"The cells are now working for the virus rather than the body, generating a subcommunity with allegiances that conflict with the interests of the larger community [of the body]. The papillomaviruses are difficult to root out because these cells, being the body's own cells, provide the cover of an upstanding citizen.'11 That cervical cancer is a sexually transmitted disease (STD) has been known for decades in the medical community, but the virus responsible is not tested for at STD clinics because infection does not always lead to cancer."
