Science Strongly Links Herpes Virus Predominant To Women To Prostate Cancer

Prostate Cancer Herpes Epstein Barr Virus HPV

Where once Epstein Barr Virus and Human Papilloma Virus were believed to affect mostly women, science has found that men can be affected too. Until now, prostate cancer causes have been blamed on genetics. However, older research suggest that the Herpes Viruses have always been suspect as a cause of cancers. More now than ever, Epstein Barr Virus and Human Papilloma Virus are strongly linked to prostate cancer affecting fathers, husbands, brothers, son and fathers.This is relevant given the new focus on prostate cancer, the elusive herpes virus Epstein Barr, and its multitude of transformative symptoms affecting the man in your life.

Cancer Predictions Are Increasing

According to the American Cancer Society, in 2017, an estimated 1,688,780 new cancer cases will be diagnosed and 600,920 deaths will result from the disease. That’s up from the dismal 2016 prediction, where an estimated 1,685,210 new cancer cases were predicted to be diagnosed with 595,690 predicted to die of the disease.

"An estimated 15 percent of all human cancers worldwide may be attributed to viruses, representing a significant portion of the global cancer burden", says a Yale Study on Viruses and Human Cancer.

One of the most common herpetic viruses known to man, but mostly affecting women, is a suspect cause for multiple cancers, among them, prostate cancer according to the most complete and recent report done on Epstein Barr Virus to date, despite a previous 2008 study that looked at the Epstein Barr Virus and cytomegalovirus and found no obvious associations with the disease.

What Prostate Cancer Is

The prostate is a gland in the reproductive system of men, which makes prostate cancer is a male-related cancer that is predominantly diagnosed in aging men. Prostate cancer symptoms are characterized as frequent urination, urination during the night, difficulty urinating, poor urine flow, painful urination and erection problems. Prostate cancer was originally thought to be genetic but given current findings, that remains to be questionable.

It should be noted that the Epstein Barr Virus along with Cytomegalovirus was suspect as a cause of prostate cancer because the viruses: 1) had been demonstrated to have transforming properties; 2) had been observed in malignant prostate tissue/cell lines; and 3) were believed to be involved in the development of other cancers, such as cervical cancer and Burkitt’s lymphoma, according to the study.

That being said, a 2012 study out of the University of South Wales, found both the human papilloma virus (HPV) and Epstein Barr virus (EBV) were present in more than half of the malignant cancers, as well as in a high proportion of benign and normal prostate samples.

Is Epstein Barr Virus Responsible For Many Cancers?

New research sheds new light on the link between the Epstein Barr Virus, and it’s cohort, HPV virus which are present in prostate, lung and breast cancers, to name a few. It should be noted that the Epstein Barr Virus affects over 225 million Americans, out of the roughly 320 million people in the U.S.

This means, based on yearly predictions for cancer, that an estimated 4% of those with the Epstein Barr Virus may get diagnosed every year.

Epstein Barr Virus, Like Cancer, Has 4 Stages

Epstein Barr Virus, according to Epstein Barr Virus expert Anthony William, NY Times Best Selling Author of Medical Medium: Secrets Behind Chronic and Mystery Illness and How to Finally Heal, has four stages but doesn’t reveal itself until its second stage when it appears as mononucleosis or glandular fever. What’s tricky about this virus is that mononucleosis or glandular fever can be as mild as a sore throat and a diagnosis for Epstein Barr can be missed. However a simple blood test can reveal antibodies for the disease mistakenly indicating a past infection, since the once again tricky virus doesn’t show up as presently active in the bloodstream. This according to William is how Epstein Barr Virus has managed to stay off the radar for so long.

In stage three of the virus, Epstein Barr Virus makes a home in the organs of it’s choosing – namely the liver, spleen, thyroid, heart or other organs, where it nests in-wait to strike. In stage four, Epstein Barr Virus makes its attempt to inflame your central nervous system causing a multitude of strange symptoms ranging from heart arrhythmias and palpations, to chronic fatigue, thyroiditis, joint pain and nerve pain.

Patients with these symptoms are diagnosed with preceding mystery illnesses such as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, or rheumatoid arthritis, and more, for which there is no cure. It is also during this final stage that Epstein Barr may show it’s most sinister side as one of several cancers, namely prostate, breast, and lung cancers. The American Cancer Association also links the Epstein Barr Virus with Lymphomas, debunking the claim that cancer is genetic.
