Stomach Virus

Posted by Greta on November 22, 2002 at 23:28:06:

Im curious...I have many friends, some get a stomach virus every year, some have never have it and most of these people are 40+. Is this due to being lucky, or just having a fantastic immune system? Isnt this caught from hand to hand and not airborne except thru a sneeze or very near someone who is ill with it? Can you catch this from touchinbg surfaces that an infected person has touched? Just curious.

Hi, Greta.

In my experience most cases of a "stomach virus" are really cases of LGS that seem to be contagious because of a hysterical sort of mob action. Even if there IS a virus involved, the weakening effect of incipient LGS makes it easy for people to catch it from others.

I would really like to see a study done where those who got it were compared with those who did not get it as to which group has the most LGS. I know what the answer would be but sometimes it takes obvious research to convince others.

Immunity has a lot to do with it but the LGS factor is the most significant one, in my opinion.

Im afraid your very wrong Dr Stoll. I think I may have LGS but Ive never experienced a stomach bug. If I do have LGS its extremely mild. I cant believe a doctor would say there is no such thing as a stomach virus.



Re: Stomach Virus (Archive in LGS.) SIGH!

Beth,

Sorry for the misunderstanding but I did not say there was no such thing as a stomach virus, I said there were a number of factors (controllable by each of us) that made us susceptible TO the virus.

I can hardly believe that there are still lay people who do not understand this. I gues the AMA propaganda for the past 100 years is still powerful for some people to think beyond it.

Walt
