What to Know about Epstein-Barr Virus

What to Know about Epstein-Barr Virus

Share/Bookmark

Epstein-Barr virus aka EBV, is a member of the Herpesvirus family, together with Herpes Simplex and Herpes Zoster and is one of the most common human viruses. Usually infection with EBV occurs during adolescence or young adulthood. Later can cause infectious mononucleosis. Like with other herpes family viruses, it is not exactly known what activates the virus. Sometimes is this virus known as so called “kissing disease”. Infectious Mononucleosis is a viral infection caused by the Epstein-Barr virus and can nest in any body organ. It is a DNA herpes-type virus that infects B lymphocytes in a first phase. Persons with infectious mononucleosis may be able to spread the infection to others for a period of weeks. However, no special precautions or isolation procedures are recommended, since the virus is also found frequently in the saliva of healthy people. In fact, many healthy people can carry and spread the virus intermittently for life.
Symptoms of infectious mononucleosis are fever, sore throat, and swollen lymph glands. Sometimes, a swollen spleen or liver involvement may develop. Heart problems or involvement of the central nervous system occurs only rarely, and infectious mononucleosis is almost never fatal.
People with viral diseases like herpes is can benefit from a diet high in lysine and low in arginine ratio. The following table is a good start-up point for what you should eat. The higher the ratio than the food is more suitable.
