Reactivating an infection is dangerous
The performance of the immune system varies throughout a person’s life. During infancy and early childhood, when the immune system is immature, people are at risk of infection with a persistent microbe such as cytomegalovirus, chlamydia, Lyme disease organism, or a virus like herpes.
In fact, by the age of 3, 100% of young children test positive for another type of latent herpes virus called HHV-6. This virus may also play a role in Alzheimer’s disease.
Among children ages 6 to 16, those who test positive for HSV-1 infection have been shown to have lower reading and spatial reasoning scores. HSV-1 and cytomegalovirus infections in middle-aged adults (20-59 years) are associated with impaired learning and memory.
As we reach old age, the immune system also ages and we again become susceptible not only to new infections, but also to the reactivation of existing latent infections – dormant viruses, bacteria and spirochetes.
These latent infections can have adverse effects on cognition throughout life. The more a person has a reactivation of these dormant viruses, the greater their risk of not only developing Alzheimer’s dementia, but also social problems related to thinking, educational level and social mobility.
These viral reactivations are directly dependent on the health of the immune system. What we are seeing now is that more and more people are suffering from immune deficiency caused by factors such as:
• A poor diet
• Chronic stress
• Exposure to industrial chemicals
• Exposure to pesticides, herbicides and fungicides
• Excessive vaccinations
People are particularly vulnerable to these factors during infancy and old age. Of those factors, I think the worst are vaccines, because the majority of vaccines are known to switch the immune system into what’s called a Th2 mode, which suppresses immunity. The fact that children over 40 receive vaccinations before entering school can be a major cause of chronic infections.
Once a persistent virus has established itself, it can also suppress immunity. The measles virus, for example, is a major immune suppressor, and the measles vaccine uses a live virus.
Studies have shown that in a high percentage of people, the measles virus persists in the brain for life.
