Hi, I work for a company that publishes science reports. I was reading a manuscript on infectious diseases. Some diseases actually bind to your DNA or RNA (like AIDS) and you never get rid of it.

Does anybody know the science behind Lyme? Can it do that? I don't mean to scare anybody here. I'm just curious. I think herpes is like that too. I'm wondering if that's the reason it's so hard to get rid of. I know about the spirochettes and how hard it is to find them, but I wonder if they somehow bind to part of our cells.

I am not specifically sure about Lyme, but I think it is that type of pathogen.

I read somewhere just recently that most pathogens we encounter do this, and that by the time we die, we are only half human!

By the time we die, the average person's DNA is made up of 50% foreign DNA that has attached itself to our own DNA.
