I totally agree with this. I really believe that we co-evolved with a lot of these diseases and the others we didnt co-evolve with arised due to bad hygeine and nutrition.
|Humans are actually biologically equipped to resist disease in many ways. We aren't just sitting ducks waiting for science to rescue us. And when we get ridiculously obsessed with things like anti-bacterial soap we actually increase our susceptibility. Things like vernix and jaundice are tools that newborns have that protect them from disease - along with placental immunities and colostrum and breastmilk. It's really a fabulous system and I'm sure there's a way to work with it. Recognizing when our tampering is interrupting this process is important.|
