Parasite expert, Moises seems to have unearthed the reason why inflammatory diseases are so rampant today: our immune system has a broken off switch.
Parasites used to be the “brakes” of our immune system.
“We’ve outsourced our immune tolerance to them,” he says.
(In order for parasites to thrive in our bodies, they tricked our immune system into thinking they weren’t there.)
But, now they’re gone…
Asthma, allergies, autoimmunity and neuroinflammatory diseases are on the rise.
Parasites even make the microbiome more diverse, according to new research.
Moises is is the author of a best selling book on microbes called Epidemic of Absence.
His research and book cleared up many missing links in my mind about immunology and microbes, I’m sure you’ll feel the same.
