Excellent news! cheerleader

While (inherited) chronic illness is more challenging, I see this as a first step, and believe its only a matter of time 1cup

Thanks for the article... enjoyed it and forwarded to a friend of mine.

I fast 1 day each week for over a year now. First 10 months apples.. now just water and tea every Thursday for past 3 months. Has made huge difference in past year for me. I feel stronger, people think I have gotten younger and did not have cold entire year (despite family having several).

I may need to look into occasional 3 day fast 1-2 times a year.

What immunology did next

With the basics of immunity nutted out, focus is now on the surprising connections between our immune system and the rest of our body and beyond, writes Idan Ben-Barak.

Here's some more fodder for that canon -

Commensal bacteria help orchestrate immune response in lung
Posted: 11 Sep 2014 01:32 PM PDT
Signals from the bacteria that harmlessly -- and often beneficially -- inhabit the human gastrointestinal tract boost the immune system's ability to kill a major respiratory pathogen, Klebsiella pneumoniae, according to a study conducted on mice.

American Society for Microbiology. "Commensal bacteria help orchestrate immune response in lung." ScienceDaily. ScienceDaily, 11 September 2014. <www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2014/09/140911163221.htm>.

From the article:
Quote:
In this study, Clarke gave mice antibiotics to kill most of the commensal bacteria in their gastrointestinal tracts. That, he found, reduced the ability of alveolar macrophages to kill K. pneumoniae, demonstrating that the commensal bacteria were somehow involved in this immune response.


This seems to me an argument against using antibiotics. (In my case, I am still mulling the idea of using antibiotics - seem to change my mind several times a day)

Well, at least it's an argument for pré / probiotics that more and more doctors (should?) give when antibiotics are used. Hopefully researchs will improve it very soon.
