This probably was already posted here, but I wanted to post it just in case: http://medicine.arizona.edu/news/cy...-aging-immune-system’s-response-other-viruses Depressing for someone just diagnosed with recent CMV infection So what is the general idea here? Need to make doubly, triply sure that I limit the number of infections I get for the remainder of my life? I can do that. Washing my hands. Never, ever touching my face. Staying out of harms way as much as possible ... Of course this doesn't eliminate all im reading about CMV causing low grade arterial inflammation that eventually causes plaques to form and arteries to harden earlier than the rest of the population... Thoughts?
