Beware: Kissing spreads a disease!

Stay away from kissing! Yes, a latest research has found that kissing enhances the threat of spreading a viral disease called "Mono", which is basically known as the "Kissing Disease". The research was conducted in US. 

The study that was conducted by the researchers of the University of Minnesota Medical School in Minneapolis, in the US took the case of around 546 college students & found that deep kissing is the most probable reason for the development of the kissing disease in human being. The respondents included freshman to elderly persons.

The "Mono" disease is spread through contact with an infected person's saliva. So it is most obvious that by deep kissing only the saliva of a human being gets transferred to another. The "Kissing Disease" is caused by the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). It can also be spread through coughing, sneezing or by sharing a glass or food utensil with someone. 

The study researchers tested all the subjects' blood samples for antibodies against the Epstein Barr virus & found that about 63% of the students tested positive for the antibodies. Doctors diagnosed 66 of the students with "Mono". 

The researchers also worked on other factors of the respondents such as diet, rate of exercise they do & the level of stress, but finally it was brought out that kissing was the prime reason for development of the "Mono" disease. Symptoms of the "Kissing Disease" include sore throat, fatigue, headache, fever decreased appetite & swollen lymph glands, especially in the neck. The findings of this study were published in 'MyHealthNewsDaily'. Finally, all we want is to be healthy. So "Beware of Kissing Anyone!"

Kissing is a common thing a partner will do, but we cannot deny that it can also serves as a transmission of a certain disease as it directly involves with our mouth. If we have a mouth sore, we have a higher chance the disease can easily spread to our body. It is best for us to know deeply our partner.
