There is a clear health divide between the rich and poor. Simply put, the rich are healthier than the poor. This divide in health was the subject of The Clinton Foundation’s recent conference, held on January 13 - 15, 2014, according to the Foundation’s website (1). During the conference, many panels discussed health and wellness, and the “Great Health Divide.” The CBCD highlights the link between latent viruses and the Great Health Divide.

Many studies show that the overall health of Americans is divided along economic, racial, and age lines. This is also true of latent viral infections. A study published in January 2012 in the journal Health Psychology found that “Early life social factors such as family poverty could have detrimental impacts on the developing immune system (2).” Additionally, poor people had higher numbers of latent viruses, but those above the poverty line did not. Study authors wrote that “Poverty was significantly associated with increased antibody levels among seropositive individuals. The association between income and antibody levels exhibited a threshold effect, with additional income beyond the poverty line not associated with increased antibody titers (2).”

Another study showed that women with higher education levels, and therefore higher income bracket, had lower levels of latent Epstein Barr Virus in their systems. “More highly educated women with more support from friends had lower EBV VCA antibody titers… (3).” This is according to a study published in January 2012, also published in Health Psychology.

What is going on here?

Those with a higher income and better education are able to afford a better environment in which to cultivate a healthy immune system. A healthy immune system is able to suppress latent viruses. This keeps latent viruses from starting a process called Microcompetition, which can cause many types of chronic disease.

What is Microcompetition?

According to the Microcompetition with Foreign DNA theory as articulated by Dr. Hanan Polansky, foreign DNA fragments, called N-boxes, cause most major diseases. When the foreign N-boxes belong to a virus, Microcompetition between the viral DNA and the human DNA can lead to disease. As predicted by Dr. Hanan Polansky, many studies found fragments of DNA that belong to these viruses in many diseased tissues.

The CBCD believes that by preventing Microcompetition, health authorities can prevent chronic diseases. This will do much to close the health divide seen in America.

“We hope that when the medical community finally understands the Microcompetition with Foreign DNA theory, authorities will be able to meet the health goals for prevention of chronic disease as laid out by the Clinton Foundation.” – Greg Bennett, CBCD

The CBCD recommends that health professionals turn to Dr. Polansky’s book, “Microcompetition with Foreign DNA and the Origin of Chronic Disease” for a better understanding of the risks posed by latent viruses, and how helping the immune system to eradicate them can help close the great health divide in the United States.

The CBCD 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.

The CBCD published the “Purple” book by Dr. Hanan Polansky. The book presents Dr. Polansky’s highly acclaimed scientific theory on the relationship between foreign DNA and the onset of chronic diseases. Dr. Polansky’s book is available as a free download from the CBCD website.
