bacteria's helpful role

    I came across this article today and found it interesting food for thought... only one mention of autoimmune disorders in this article ... but it was such an interesting article that I decided to post it anyways.

    We all think germs are evil and we must kill all bacteria with handwipes, bodywash, soap, on kitchen and floors and really they are probably doing a whole host of good for us! I have to also wonder if illnesses like Crohn's and stomach ulcers could benefit from in influx of the "good bacteria" instead of treating the way it is done currently with lifetime medications. I really hope further research in this area can help all of us suffering from a variety of illnesses including autoimmune disorders.
