Epstein-Barr Virus

Hello there, I'm EBV.
I'm a member of the Herpesviridae family.
I have double stranded DNA.

My disease is called infectious mononucleosis, mono, and glandular fever.
I cause sore throat and cough, fever, nausea and swollen lymph nodes.
You get very tired all the time.
In bad cases, I can swell up your liver or spleen, or infect your heart, lungs and brain.

Some cancers are more common after I visit.

Herpes? That's not something that many people want to think about. But 1 in 4 people DO think about it, because they have it. As a matter of fact, 70 million are afflicted with STDs in the U.S. alone and an estimated over 400 million worldwide. Are you one of them? I have Herpes too. I have find my herpes mate on http://www.STDromance.com .
