Lupus Causes

By A. G. Moore

If I could answer the question, “What causes lupus?”, I probably would be nominated for the Nobel Prize. For, with an answer to this question would come understanding of the mechanism by which the disease is triggered. And with that understanding would surely come a cure, or at least a way to prevent lupus from occurring in the first place.

However, though there is not  one culprit that can be identified as causing lupus, there are several factors that have been shown to correlate with its occurrence. A few of those will be discussed on this website.

Some suspected causes, or triggers for developing lupus are:

1. Epstein-Barr Virus

2. Pesticides

3. UV Exposure

4. Sulfa Drugs

5. Chronic, Inflammatory Gum Disease

6. Staph Infection
