Yep, they did that on the show Mythbusters. Many people are immune to it. i dont think its a disease which means you cant have an immunity to it i believe it is an allergic reaction which varies in intensity from person to person i had it real bad as a kid but never again have gotten it that bad so maybe after being exposed to it your body gets better at fighting it the best protection against is is to wash yourself good after being exposed to it but let the fear of it keep you from enjoying the great outdoors
Yes. yes. it's an alergy which not everyone has.
possible,my dad pulls them from the ground with his hands.It never bothers him ! Yes
Yes, if they have already had it and the virus has not mutated in the plant, they will not get it again because their bodies store information on how to combat the virus.vacinations also prevent this.you can have an immunity to a virus the same way you have an immunity to chicken pocks after you get it as a child, this is why there are very few cases where children get chicken pocks more than once and they are ususally children with weakened immune systems.this also explains why you can only get chicken pocks again as shingles as an adult because it is a mutated form of the virus.the same principle applies to poision ivy and poison oak.plus some people are just born with certain immunities. I am not allergic to poison ivy or oak.
I have never got it I am
Yes. I am. yes.it has something to do with your mother's genesI can't get it at all and I've touched it several times.my mother can not get it either, but my father can look at it and break out
Apparently - I am. No clue why though. yes
