MOSCOW, March 13 – RIA Novosti. Doctor and TV presenter Alexander Myasnikov spoke on the air of the TV channel “Russia 1” about the Epstein-Barr virus, which, according to him, infected 95 percent of people.
This virus is also called human herpesvirus type 4. According to Myasnikov, most become infected with it in childhood, and the infection manifests itself most often much later – as a rule, as a result of a weakened immune system due to age.
“When activated, it causes terrible diseases – lymphomas, <...> leukemias, head and neck cancer, it plays a role in the development of multiple sclerosis. That is, it is already serious, it is a virus that leads to many cancers,” he said medic.
He stressed that often the virus may not appear at all, and urged Russians to help the body maintain the immune barrier in order to avoid the dangerous consequences of infection. To do this, he said, one should adhere to a healthy lifestyle, minimize stress, and monitor sleep and nutrition. The science
