Will FMOTQ get you in the end?

Recently researchers in the UK found that the virus that causes cold sores, Herpes Simplex Virus-1, may lead to increased levels of the proteins that cause Alzheimer's Disease. When the Manchester University group injected HSV-1 into human brain tissue culture, they found a "dramatic" increase in the levels of beta amyloid protein, the protein that acts as a building block for the neural plaque formations that cause Alzheimer's disease. That's something to make everyone sore.
