Living with microbes

An interesting article on the symbiotic evolution of humans and microbes - 


Immunity is an interesting and confusing topic, particularly to many parents including me. At one level, we want the kids to be healthy and away from viruses and bacteria and while doing so we also weaken their immunity.  I understand that when they are infants they are probably better off not being exposed to any, but once they are toddlers I prefer a runny nose once in a while just to make sure they are friends with those microbes :)
