The Upside of Herpes

When I hear the word "herpes," I automatically think "the gift that keeps on giving." But maybe I should switch that to "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger." People with latent herpes hiding in their cells may have some advantages in their immune system. In our world of modern medicine, it's most certainly not worth contracting a case, but research into how our bodies harness the virus might someday lead to replicating the good effects without the bad. -Thanks, SnowMan!
