As vaccines are developed the immune system has to rally. The goal is to educate on health and take steps to engage in clean routines to support the challenges of illness. The news “How researchers are using the human immune system to lead fight against viruses” is another method to reduce illness that vaccinations are not able to fight.
“But as scientists will hear at a global conference in Dubai this month, vaccination is driving a fresh wave of triumphs against mass killers, including malaria and even cancer.
Perhaps most astonishing of all is that all this is being made possible by compounds created by just one small pharmaceutical laboratory: our own bodies.
Each year, the pharmaceutical industry spends tens of billions of dollars searching for blockbuster drugs. But it has yet to find any miracle cure as versatile and effective as our disease-fighting immune system.
The product of aeons of evolution, the immune system is a reservoir of complexity, able to defeat illnesses that science has yet to find a cure for – from the common cold to ebola.
Yet evolution cannot be relied on to provide panaceas. Its twin driving forces of random mutation and natural selection are focused on one goal: boosting the chances of organisms living long enough to reproduce.”
The vaccines are not meeting the current viruses. One remedy along with science are good health solutions to combat illnesses through cleaning, washing of hands and managing contact with those ill.
