Blueberry shock virus in humans

Asked June 11, 2019, 9:00 PM EDT

I just had my gut microbiome tested by Viome.com and they told me that I have blueberry shock virus and blueberry shock virus isolate Berkely. They said I shouldn’t eat blueberries. I’ve never heard of these viruses in humans, just in plants. Will it eventually die off? Is there any source of info on these viruses in humans? Can I get sick from eating blueberries? Thanks, Susan

Thank you for your question. Susan. Many testing groups provide information that is of questionable reliability. Have you utilized a resource of scientific origin with that information? We can only analyze reliable information. Thanks!
