Carrie Williams Howe – Make Your Own Elderberry Syrup

If you’ve walked the aisle of a health food store lately, you’ve no doubt seen a proliferation of homeopathic medicines, syrups, and tonics made with elderberries.  Often including honey, these products are designed to prevent and treat cold and flu symptoms and generally boost your immune system.

Lucy Goodchild Van Hilten – Those Burgers Aren’t Just Making Us Fat—They’re Messing With Our Immune Systems, Too

A junk food diet is clearly not healthy. Burgers widen our waistlines, raise our cholesterol levels and tighten our arteries. But scientists now think that even before it shows up as additional pounds on the scale, junk food is changing our bodies in other, surprising ways. It’s actually a form of malnutrition that could be making our immune systems attack our own bodies.

In a recent study [3] published in the Journal of Immunology, scientists at Australia’s University ...

Kent Heckenlively – Lethal Viruses Contaminating the US Blood Supply?

Retroviruses hide out in the immune system, which means any immune activation could set off this ticking time-bomb and cause diseases like chronic fatigue syndrome among adults, and autism among children.  Are they lurking in the US blood supply?

PLAGUE – The Retrovirus-Gate Lies

Host, heal thyself: Immune system self-organizes to minimize biological cost of pathogenic infections – Stuart Mason

The adaptive immune system – a subsystem of the overall immune system – comprises specialized cells and processes that eliminate or prevent pathogen growth by using the experience of past infections to prepare its limited repertoire of specialized receptors to protect organisms from future threats. Recently, scientists at CNRS and Ecole Normale Superieure, Paris and the University of Pennsylvania developed a general theoretical framework from first principles that allowed them to predict the composition of receptor repertoires optimally adapted to minimize the ...
