Rochester, NY (PRWEB) February 22, 2012
The Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD) is announcing a new campaign called “Help a Celeb!” Many Celebrities struggle with trying to balance modeling, television and film careers with wild nights and lavish lifestyles. Many people long to live their own life stories that encompass the sorrows and triumphs of living in the Celebrity fantasy world.
People all over America follow the stars’ every move, fashion choice, and sordid, passionate affair. Celebs are our fantasies and they live in the heights, in the heavens…places we long to reach. Yet, every Celeb is part-human, and just like us has the potential to become infected with viruses that can cause their star to fall crashing back to Earth. And, when they fall, our fantasies crash with them.
People should not waste their fantasies! Fantasies are precious. They are an escape from the dreary world we all live in. Some people live their own lives through the lives of their favorite Celeb. That’s why it’s important that we protect our celebrities, our fantasies. That’s why we should do what we can to keep our stars from falling.
That’s why the CBCD is creating a new campaign called “Help a Celeb!”
Numerous websites make note of the fact that many Celebrities suffer from dangerous viruses. Just two of the many Celebrities that suffer from these viruses are Pamela Anderson  and Anne Heche .
In an interview with the New York Post, SallyAnn Salsano, creator and producer of "Jersey Shore," said STDs are a constant concern for Celebs. “I do a full medical [for cast members] but I also do a lot of STD stuff,” she says. In the same NY Post article, Dr. Drew Pinsky, the host of "Celebrity Rehab," says, “… everyone on the set has to take [herpes medication] Valtrex....”
The CBCD is urges citizens to become active in “Help a Celeb!”
1. Educate them about the risk of dormant viruses
2. Convince them you continue to love them regardless of their infection
3. Tell them there is hope. Convince them to try treatments that boost the immune system against dormant viruses.
What risk do dormant viruses pose to Celebrities and to others?
Many viruses (such as herpes, HPV, the Epstein Barr virus, and more!) enter into periods of latency (dormancy), where they behave as if they are hibernating, or sleeping. When the viruses are dormant, or latent, as scientists call it, the person is not sick. In fact, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) says, “Some viruses … can enter a state known as latency in which the virus is not being replicated. In the latent state, the virus does not cause disease.”
However, it is always possible that these dormant viruses will reactivate.
Yet, even when the viruses are not active, they can be dangerous. This is because a dormant virus is a genetic parasite that steals scarce genetic resources needed by the body’s cells. In contrast to the FDA’s view, Dr. Hanan Polansky discovered the biological mechanism through which foreign, viral DNA causes disease. This discovery is named “Microcompetition with Foreign DNA.”
Dr. Polansky’s “Purple Book” discusses these concepts and is available as a free download at: http://www.cbcd.net. Moreover, a simple Google search on dormant viruses, and remedies that boost the immune system against them, will provide anyone with the information they need to help their favorite Celebrity maintain his or her health.
But, how does anyone let their favorite Celeb know there is hope if they don’t know them personally? Send them a letter. Write about it in a blog. Post on message boards. Comment on articles.
Many Celebrities are concerned about their status among their fans. Many will go out of their way to make sure people don’t discover they are infected with a nasty virus. That’s why they need their fans to remind them they are loved.
People everywhere can show their love by pointing out a potential cure to their favorite Celeb’s embarrassing, viral infection.

The Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD, http://www.cbcd.net) is a research center recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) non-for-profit organization. The mission of the CBCD is to advance the research on the biology of chronic diseases, and to accelerate the discovery of treatments for these diseases.
The CBCD published the “Purple” book by Dr. Hanan Polansky. The book presents Dr. Polansky’s highly acclaimed scientific theory on the relationship between the DNA of latent (chronic) viruses and the onset of chronic diseases. Dr. Polansky’s book is available as a free download from the CBCD website.
We invite biologists, virologists, and scientists everywhere to download Dr. Polansky's book.
