    Only by ingesting food that is affected…or handling the food, then putting your hands in/near your mouth. Proper food preparations (cooking meat to right temperature) and proper hygiene (washing hands before and after preparing food) dram… Source:

    You people should all pass 5th grade before attempting to act like lawyers! Seriously 90% of the population has oral herpes aka cold sores! he probably already had them! you can sue for anything nowadays but a judge would laugh you right out of the court house! only people intentionally spreading HIV can be convicted! and even that is a long shot and extremely rare! For one you are responsible for who you hook up with! You need to know their medical history before doing anything with them! And you would have to prove that particular person gave you the oral herpes! That would be impossible since almost everyone has them and youve likely kissed other people, shared drinks, etc! And btw cold sores (HSV 1) ARE exactly the same things as HSV 2 they are just in a different place!
