So if you have cancer go out there and get some strange?

Virtually everyone already has some version of herpes anyway. Please proceed.

A neighbor of mine told me that consuming large amounts of erythritol triggers herpes outbreaks, even if you haven't had an episode in a decade.  That slut.

Also, not everyone gets eruptions.  For many, a flare up manifests as back pain, strange but minor cramps in the thighs and buttocks, and mild testicular pain.  Sleep tight.  Again, the neighbor--it's not like I'm speaking from personal experience or anything.

You know, I'm perfectly OK with the idea of giving cancer herpes.

Turning a tumor into a herpes sore is not an improvement. Hell, that's not even a cure, thats just giving a cancer patient herpes. A lesion with lesions on it. How original.

1) Create a cancer-curing STD.
2) Infect yourself.
3) Destroy all other samples?
