Of course there is a flip side to that. One theory of the rise in the
number auto-immune diseases (such as, but not limited to, rhuematoid
arthritis) is that we are over vaccinating and over cleaning our
environment giving the immune system nothing to do. It gets bored and
starts looking for things to attack, which include ourselves.

I got a kick out of an episode of Star Trek The Next Generation that
aired years ago. There was a group of scientists who genetically
engineered a group of children who's immune system was so advanced
that it would attack non-genetically enhanced humans as pathogens.
Their immune systems didn't wait for something to invade them, it
went outside their bodies looking for bugs.
I read somewhere that one theory for the spread of Crohn's Disease was
wood floors. Before that, when kids learned to crawl in the dirt and
ate some of the dirt, the worms forced the immune system to develop in
a certain way that no longer happens. Here:
Sort of disgusting I admit.
And I remember one day drving along listening to some guy talking
about how the over-vaccination of all of us is responsible for the
explosion of eczema and such. And I'm looking in the rearview mirror
at a tiny patch of eczema on my cheek. Could be I guess, but it went
away with a bit of zinc soap.
