    Immune System and Mental Health are connected

    This is potentially extremely important.

    See:
    https://neurosciencenews.com/immune-...lth-14737/amp/

    "Many people have long believed that there is a connection between mental health and the immune system, but we’ve known very little about what the relevant biological mechanisms might be.“Most people have had the sense of this connection, but as doctors, we haven’t quite kept up,” says Associate Professor Solveig Merete Klæbo Reitan at NTNU’s Department of Mental Health.
    So the field has been left to alternative therapists instead. But that is changing."

    "The cells of the immune system communicate using signal molecules called cytokines. The cells of the nervous system send signals by means of signal molecules called neurotransmitters."

    "“Both of these cells are small molecules that have the same type of structure and

    configuration,” says Klæbo Reitan. “The distinction between them is something human beings have invented. We’re not talking about two different systems. Now it’s become clear that the signal molecules in the immune system also transmit to the nervous system and vice versa."

    "
    “We know that people with mental disorders are also more susceptible to various inflammations in the body and to immune system disorders. This indicates that an interaction exists,” says Klæbo Reitan.The opposite applies too, of course. We also know that people who have been subjected to neglect or childhood abuse are more susceptible to various diseases of the immune system.
    That’s why people with psychosis should be given prednisolone – a steroid drug that can curb inflammation – to see if the treatment can have a beneficial effect on mental health."

    Like Human Endogenous Retroviruses (HERVs)- the "insanity virus" that is suspected to cause Schizophrenia. HERVs are more and more believed to cause cancers, MS and other diseases that humanity has not found out how to prevent or cure.
