Bacteria ‘hijack’ human immune system

Just logging a fascinating new insightfrom the Royal Society that Bacteria 'hijack' the human immune system. It's no real surprise to me. I've talked about how we are made from bacteria and this can both benefit and harm us

The lesson from this article is that bacteria are continually evolving. Most live within us and help us. But we are to them just like the earth is to us. We are they environment in which they live. As well adjust they adjust and as our immune system seeks out harmful things it looks for bacteria like any other potentially harmful organism.

Without going into detail this understanding can have implications for cancer, recovery, allergies, activity, diet
