robomatic BS: Bare Footin' (40) RE: BS: Bare Footin' 09 Jun 21

There is also a theory that humans co-evolved with many of our long-term parasites therefore the quick elimination of so many of them due to hygiene and plumbing improvements led to the increase of auto-immune diseases because after millenia homo-sapiens had adapted to the presence of a certain amount of parasite 'load'.

the above is a theory I am only bringing up because I have known many folks with colitis.

Anyhow you can read about it here.

There was a radio story I've heard more than once about an American with Crohn's disease or colitis who went to Africa to pick up hookworm on purpose. He felt it diminished his symptoms and he started isolating them from his you-know-what, isolating 'em and posting them to folks who wanted to try it out. I'm positive this is not approved by any official medical institution(, and it may be illegal as well). Here's a tale of an individual who did the same thing. Here's a doctor who is working on the theory as well.
