correcting the wayward, postmodern immune system

Moises Velasquez-Manoff the author of “An Epidemic of Absence: A New Way of Understanding Allergies and Autoimmune Diseases” wrote an editorial in the NYT’s latest Sunday edition discussing recent science which indicates there may be An Immune Disorder at the Root of Autism.

The author suggests viewing human health advances as a form of “ecosystem restoration project”. Influenced by knowledge learned during the Human Microbiome Project the topics covered include the “postmodern immune system”, microbial health, autisism and inflammation as disease ecologies and human micobiome rewilding.
