What do you all think about this? There's an "unknown" a-list actor being sued by someone for 20mil for contracting herpes from said actor. Apparantly there's a video of them doing all sorts of things and I guess the actor says he has no disease. Sounds kinda fishy to me.. but.. what do you guys think?
Twenty Million dollars? For a condition that causes no permanent damage, is treatable with easily obtained medication, usually burns itself out within 15 years or less of contracting it
(most people who have herpes don't even get outbreaks after a while] and at best is a nuisance? Sure.
I'm a nurse and I'd say yes.
In this economy, there's a lot of stuff I'd do I wouldn't have thought about even 10 or 12 years ago.
Herpes isn't that big of a deal
. Really. $20 million dollars could set up my children for a good life, pay off my house, and not have to worry about ending up ever homeless or not being able to afford food or medicine.
NOBODY is going to pay someone to get a disease (unless you volunteer for some illegal medical experiment) but if it could happen, herpes is one of the least troubling of medical conditions.
Not to mention that more than 80% of the population has some form of herpes by the age of 50 or so
. Chances are you're going to get it anyway
, most doctors don't even distinguishes between "Type 1" and "Type 2" anymore, because they are so intertwined and only serve to make people who get cold sores on their mouths think they are somehow superior to people who occasionally have a genital out break of the exact same condition
Herpes is really a non-issue.
