I came across a post earlier that stated, ‘Viruses are parasites’
I asked her to explain.
I already searched. Seeking an easy explanation. Thanks!


Terrain answer:

I’m not sure what post that was but Viruses definitely are NOT parasites. What the industry labels viruses in most cases are simply discarded cellular debris from the normal cellular break down processes. Occasionally they appear to be also calling exosomes viruses, but historically it has just been cellular debris that has been labeled viruses. Either way they are not parasites.
