Default Re: Cryptorchidism

There's some serious studies at the minute that conclude that the presence of worms in the body (thread worm), eliminates ecxema and asthma.

Even in the most chronic cases.

As a species, we spent millions of years living in piss and skids.

The University of Strathclyde is celebrating a Proof of Concept award for a project that may end the suffering of up to six million people in the UK. Researchers have found that a tropical parasitic worm may hold the key to relieving some of the world's most painful and debilitating autoimmune diseases such as lupus, psoriasis and Crohn's disease.

There are currently no cures for most autoimmune diseases. Existing treatments tackle the condition by suppressing the body's immune system, leaving the patient less able to fight off other infections. Researchers have now found that filarial nematodes, a class of parasitic worm that infects humans and animals, secrete an anti-inflammatory molecule known as "ES-62" into its host, without producing any obvious side effects or compromising the immune system.
