4 Deadly Diseases That Are Transmitted By Kissing

Kissing brings many benefits for our health, but it can also be a way for the transmission of viruses and bacteria that cause diseases. These are 5 of the deadliest diseases you can get from kissing.

1. Hapatitis B

Hepatitis B is transmitted by infected blood and saliva. Kissing can trigger the disease by transmission of the virus through saliva.

When the partner comes in contact with mucous membranes or open sores around the mouth of an infected person.

2. Cold sores

Cold sores are actually the result of the herpes simplex virus. Just a quick smooch can give this to your partner or even your children.

All they have to do is come into contact with the virus while it's shedding, which can happen even before the telltale blister begins to form.

3. Colds

Anyone can be infected by common cold by exposure to droplets in the air or by direct contact with secretions of the infected persons.

Kissing can be one of the easiest ways for the viruses to get into your body through saliva.

4. Gum disease

Even though gum diseases do not spread through kissing, the bad bacteria that cause the disease can. Therefore, flossing and brushing are your best buds.

It is said love is a beautiful thing that equally has dangerous aspects to it. The kissing part could be one. Like, comment, share and follow me for more news.
