I don’t know, but it is a question that has occurred to me before. If our immune system is so amazingly great that an alien invader enters the body, our immune cells rush to kick hell out of the invader, then get carried away and start on our myelin, then surely there would be some things that MS or another auto immune condition would actively protect against.
I know that I don’t get colds most of the time. I think I’ve had one cold in about 10 years. My feeling is that a cold virus comes near me and my immune system fights it off.
But that would surely mean that a UTI would stand no chance either, and that’s definitely not the case.
Or is it that viruses are fightable by the immune system but bacterial infection is not?
I really wish I’d tried to learn a bit more science when I was at school. Instead I think I studied harder at going out to parties, drinking, smoking and boys.
