    A woman with herpes who uses TikTok to raise awareness about the condition has slammed MTV for mocking her in one of its TV shows. Suzanna Brusikiewicz, who is from Toronto, Canada, was featured in the network's series Ridiculousness recently. The show, which first aired in 2011 and has been going on for 27 seasons, shows host Rob Dyrdek share 'color commentary' on a slew of viral videos. During one episode, he brought up a previous TikTok that Suzanna had shared in which she revealed she had been diagnosed with the sexually transmitted disease, but said she was still 'f**king hot.' Suzanna, who has racked up more than 232,000 followers on the app, often posts videos making jokes and discussing the virus in an attempt to end the stigma around it, but she was unamused when Rob branded her as a 'super-spreader' in the show.

    It's an issue that plagues an estimated 3.7 billion people globally, and now scientists have uncovered the history – or should we say 'kiss-tory' – of cold sores. Researchers from the University of Cambridge have sequenced ancient genomes from herpes – the virus that commonly causes lip sores. Their findings suggest that the strain of the virus behind facial herpes as we know it arose around 5,000 years ago, amid the advent of 'sexual-romantic kissing.' Dr Christiana Scheib, co-senior author of the study, said: 'Every primate species has a form of herpes, so we assume it has been with us since our own species left Africa. 'However, something happened around five thousand years ago that allowed one strain of herpes to overtake all others, possibly an increase in transmissions, which could have been linked to kissing.' It's an issue that plagues an estimated 3.7 billion people globally, and now scientists have unravelled the history – or should we say 'kiss-tory' – of cold sores In the study, the team extracted viral DNA from the teeth of four individuals.

    In May and July 2018, two British women died of catastrophic herpes infections shortly after delivering babies via Caesarean section in facilities overseen by the East Kent Hospitals Trust. Their grieving families were told nothing connected them. But an investigation conducted by the BBC has learned otherwise—the women shared a surgeon who may have unknowingly planted the herpes virus directly into their uteruses after he made the birth incision. On May 3, 2018, Kimberly Sampson, a 29-year-old mother who worked as a barber, went into labor. It began normally but quickly slowed down, causing her unborn child to become lodged in her pelvis, leading to an emergency Caesarean. She was injured during the operation and given a blood transfusion, according to the BBC report. Despite being in immense pain with difficulty walking, she and her newborn son were discharged. They went to her mother’s home, where Kimberly resided. A few days later, her mother, Yvette Sampson, says her daughter was in unbearable pain and rushed by ambulance to the hospital, where she was diagnosed inaccurately with bacterial sepsis. When antibiotics...
    As humanity continues its search for life in the universe, a renowned astrobiologist says we should expect to find viruses if extraterrestrials exist. Theoretical physicist and astrobiologist Paul Davies said it's likely that viruses exist if complex life also exists, noting they would all be part of a broader spectrum. 'Viruses actually form part of the web of life,' Davies, the director of The Beyond Center at Arizona State University said in an interview with The Guardian. 'I would expect that if you've got microbial life on another planet, you're bound to have – if it's going to be sustainable and sustained – the full complexity and robustness that will go with being able to exchange genetic information.'  Astrobiologist Paul Davies says humanity should expect to find viruses if extraterrestrials exist They're all part of a broader spectrum, as 'viruses ... form part of the web of life,' Davies (pictured) said In June, NASA Administrator Bill Nelson said humanity is 'not alone' in the universe after reviewing the Pentagon's declassified report about unexplained aerial phenomena.   Davies, whose new...

    (CNN)R. Kelly's personal physician of 25 years took the stand Thursday to testify about his treatment of the singer's genital herpes since at least 2007, after prosecutors allege the singer knowingly infected multiple people with the incurable sexually transmitted disease. The singer, 54, whose full name is Robert Sylvester Kelly, has pleaded not guilty to charges of racketeering and violating the Mann Act, an anti-sex trafficking law. Separately from this case, Kelly faces federal child pornography and obstruction charges in the Northern District of Illinois, and faces state charges there for multiple counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse. He has strongly denied the accusations.One of the underlying acts alleged against him is that he knowingly infected women with herpes, in violation of public health laws that require people who have an infectious venereal disease to notify their partners about their diagnosis. On Thursday, Kris McGrath, a Chicago-based physician specializing in internal medicine, appeared in Brooklyn federal court under a subpoena, and testified that he'd been treating the singer since 1994.Read MoreWoman testifies R.

Dakota, who lives in Mount Airy, North Carolina, and is a mental health expert, She gave birth to her son Emmitt on February 26, 2019, without imagining that her happiness would fade just a few days later. At 6 days old, Emmitt had to be hospitalized after he suffered serious health problems derived from the herpes simplex virus that he was diagnosed. Sadly, the little boy couldn’t take it and he died just 11 days after coming to this world. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t protect it. But please, wash your hands, do not touch their mouth or kiss them … They can’t fight, ”was how Dakota captioned her video. “Babies don’t have an immune system and they can’t fight germs,” ​​he added. Some users, shocked by his experience, asked him how Emmitt got...

    A mysterious cancer has been plaguing the sea lion population in California and following a 20-year-old investigation, scientists have determined what is causing the disease – toxic chemicals and herpes. The Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito analyzed an aggressive cancer, known as urogenital cancer, which has killed nearly 25 percent of sea lions, and sampled more than 300 of the mammals for the study. The team examined each deceased animal and found Otarine herpesvirus-1 (OtHV-1) in tumors, along with DDT and PCBs, both toxic waste, which have been associated with cancer in other mammals like the beluga whale. The study also found that sea lions with higher concentration of toxic chemicals in their blubber were more likely to have cancer take over their bodies. A mysterious cancer has been plaguing the sea lion population in California and following a 20-year-old investigation, scientists have determined what is causing the disease – toxic chemicals and herpes Frances Gulland, senior scientist of The Marine Mammal Center, told the Los Angeles Times: ‘Sea lions, they’re coming up on the beach, using the same...
    On a former Cold War missile base perched high above the Golden Gate Bridge, in what is now the largest marine mammal hospital in the world, Frances Gulland still remembers the shock she felt when she first started working here as a veterinarian 26 years ago. A male sea lion had washed ashore in severe pain. His hind flippers were swollen, his lymph nodes riddled with tumors. Cancer had taken over his kidneys and turned his spine to mush. First responders at the Marine Mammal Center told Gulland they saw this in sea lions all the time. “Wildlife should not be getting cancer like this, that’s crazy!” said Gulland, who was new to California. “How can that be?” Now, after two decades of study, an all-star team of marine mammal pathologists, virology experts, chemists and geneticists say they’ve connected two surprising culprits: Herpes and toxic chemicals, like DDT and PCBs, that poisoned the California coast decades ago. The ocean is clearly hurting, researchers say, and this mysterious cancer in so many sea lions carries a troubling warning for humans....
    CBS’s left-wing late night host Stephen Colbert said that President Donald Trump “might be something that never fully goes away,” comparing the president to herpes and added that “there might be blossomings of him” in the future. “There might be echoes of [Trump],” said Colbert in an interview with Vanity Fair, after being asked what he believes The Late Show will look like in a year from now. “He might be something that never fully goes away. He’s like herpes — there might be blossomings of him where we have to take Valtrex. We have to take the Valtrex to keep the Trump blossoms down.” The Late Show host also said that he is looking forward to talking less about the White House and politics on his show while Joe Biden is in office. “With Biden in control, the country may become ‘sleepier,'” noted Vanity Fair. “Ratings might collapse across the media without the Trump circus. And Colbert has lost his biggest and most show-defining target.” Colbert, however, expressed that this couldn’t make him feel happier. “If Joe Biden is a pair of khaki...
    A team of researchers in Seattle believe they’ve found a cure for oral herpes, the virus that causes painful cold sores for 10 million Americans. And their discovery also could pave the way to eradicating genital herpes, they believe. Scientists at the Fred Hutchinson cancer center in Seattle have succeeded in eliminating 90% of the virus through gene therapy, or what team leader Dr. Keith Jerome described as gene editing, according to their findings, which were published Tuesday in Nature Communications. “A lot of smart scientists have been really hesitant to think about a cure. To them, a cure was like selling snake oil. It just wasn’t a realistic goal,” Jerome told The Post. “Now, they’re talking about a cure.” The researchers used tiny enzymes, transported through the body in harmless viruses, to cut the herpes DNA, Jerome told The Post. When the virologist’s team launched experiments a decade ago on infected mice, they used only one kind of enzyme and discovered that sliced genes could heal themselves. Over the years, they found that combinations of enzymes — “molecular scissors,”...
    OUR LIPS are usually seen as a beauty element, another part of our body that we can add a pop of colour to with lipsticks and glosses. They are a major feature that set us aside from others and we use our lips for kissing, eating and even talking. 7Pucker up! Your lips can reveal a lot about your healthCredit: Getty - Contributor But your smackers can also reveal underlying health issues from everything to liver disease to herpes, according to experts. Wellness expert Hari Simran says the colour, shape and texture of your lips can reveal signs of health issues that you might be ignoring if you have other symptoms. She said lips are the “doorway” to the inner workings of our bodies. Writing for Kora Organics she said the upper lip represents the heart, lungs, liver, stomach and the thyroid. This is while the lower lip can reflect issues you may be having in the intestines. Lisa Borg, skin specialist and nutritionist  at Pulse Light Clinic said minor issues can be easily dealt with. But how can you...
    Two friends in Texas received two drastically different bills when they were tested for the novel coronavirus.  Pamela LeBlanc and Jimmy Harvey were about to go camping and kayaking along the Texas east coast with three friends and wanted some peace of mind. Both went to get drive-through tests at Austin Emergency Center in Austin and, luckily, both tested negative. While Harvey was charged $199, and paid in cash, LeBlanc - who paid with her private insurance - was billed $6,408, reported The New York Times.  Pamela LeBlanc (left) and Jimmy Harvey (right), from Austin, Texas, were tested for the coronavirus at Austin Emergency Room. Harvey paid in cash and was charged $199 while LeBlanc, who paid with insurance, was charged $6,408 UnitedHealthcare claims it used the wrong code, suggesting LeBlanc had had her blood drawn for different test.

    TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — State wildlife and parks staff are collecting and testing samples from fish carcasses to determine whether a koi herpes virus is behind fish kills in at least two Kansas lakes. According to the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism, staff have confirmed die-offs at Pomona Reservoir in Osage County and Hillsdale Reservoir in Miami County. Anglers on social media have reported die-offs at other lakes, but they have not been confirmed. The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that common carp are the only species that appear to be affected, leading staff to belief that the koi herpes virus is the cause. Test results should be back within 3 to 4 weeks, said department Chief of Public Affairs Nadia Reimer. Brian Larsen, of Vassar, witnessed the fish kill at Pomona. “It was latter part of May and into early June as we were fishing every day during the crappie spawn here,” Larsen said. “Even while out canoeing for the fun of it, we were seeing hundreds of large, dead carp floating all over the lake. The smell was...
