Living in this world of microbial bugs

EVIDENCE IS MOUNTING that a variety of
common germs — long thought to cause only
mild, short-lived illnesses such as the flu
— play a role in causing chronic health
problems ranging from allergies, asthma and
arthritis to obesity, heart disease and cancer.
Long after one recovers from the microbe’s
initial insult, viruses, bacteria and other germs
silently chew away at the body’s tissues and
organs, causing insidious, permanent damage,
experts believe.

Could this be the result of aging? I expect
someday, that terminal illness will be cured.

If you haven't already, take a look thru the "All-
Purpose Anti-Pathogen explored..." links on the
right panel here.

The whole report.
