1/: About 70% of the immune system is housed in the gut. And yet, both our digestive and immune systems were largely ignored during the 𝘱𝘭𝘢𝘯𝘥𝘦𝘮𝘪𝘤. In this 𝗧𝗛𝗥𝗘𝗔𝗗, I will briefly tell you things the government won’t tell you. Image
2/: The gut is home to billions of microorganisms (i.e. bacteria, viruses etc.) that are of central importance to us. This community of organisms is called the "microbiome". The #microbiome may weigh as much as five pounds (i.e. 2.5kg). Image
3/: With a surface area of 400m², the gut mucosa is one of the largest components of the human immune system. Its function is to absorb nutrients while making sure that pathogens won't enter the bloodstream. Image

1/ 🧵 Check out this table of endocrine disrupting chemicals in the air, from a 2018 study…

Link to study's journal article:…
2/ When you scan that table (link in tweet 1 in thread), you'll see that 2 of those endocrine disrupting chemicals are released by synthetic fragrances - phthlates and synthetic musk. What are the effects of these 2 chemicals on human health?
3/ "Phthalates, as endocrine-disrupting chemicals and SVOCs, are detrimental to the reproductive, neurological, and developmental systems of human from multiple exposure pathways."

The African crested rat looks adorable, but its fur is packed with lethal poison—just milligrams can kill a human. New study discovered they also have a rich social life.@NationalZoo @museumsofkenya @UUtah @MDeniseDearing @SaraBWeinstein… 📷StephanieHiggins Two African crested rats—rabbit-sized rodents that look a
People in East Africa have known the rat to be poisonous but its source was mysterious. A 2011 paper proposed these rabbit-sized rodents sequester toxins from the poison arrow tree Acokanthera schimperi. They’re the only #mammals to use plant toxins for defense. Sara Weinstein, left, and Katrina Nyawira, right, stand in f
The 2011 study hypothesized that the rats chew Acokanthera bark and lick the plant toxins into specialized hairs at the center of these stripes. In the photo, the larger, porous center hair is poisonous, compared to the normal ones in the background. PC: @SaraBWeinstein @UUtah A microscopic photo of the African crested rat hairs. There

It is a terrible disease that enters your body through #wounds & can kill in days if nothing is done fast!

{SHARE to create awareness!} ImageImage
2\. #Tetanus results from a #toxin produced by the bacteria called Clostridium tetani.

This toxin makes your muscles to contract on their own (i.e. involuntarily), becoming rigid like this; Image
3\. Tetanus lives in soil & animal feces. It can live there for years. It may then enter your body through:

-#Wounds contaminated with soil or feces

-Skin #punctures by nonsterile needles (e.g. when injecting illegal drugs, #tattoo or body piercing)

#Thread: Why are people #antivax? My mom's answer to "why?" has changed over time. When I was young, she told me that she was more worried about #vaccine side effects than she was about me catching a vax preventable disease (#VPD).
As I've asked her about the issue over time & pushed back against some of her beliefs, she's given me a lot of different answers:
false link to #autism;
fear that babies' immune systems aren't developed enough to handle so many shots at once;
"Big Pharma;"
Overall, she had a gut feeling when she first became a #mom that #vaccines are scary & if anything happened to me because she vaccinated, she'd feel guilty.

“I tell people, when they drop food on the floor, please pick it up and eat it” 👉 What?? No. Don’t do that!☝️@NYTScience your vastly oversimplied articles on the “#hygeine hypothesis” have gone too far. Many researchers like myself oppose it. Please consider interviewing us too.
1/1 This is possibly the most incorrect statement from the @NYTScience#hygeine hypothesis” article 👉 “Our immune system needs a job,” Dr. Lemon said. “We evolved over millions of years to have our #immune systems under constant assault. Now they don’t have anything to do.”
2/2 The opposite is true 👉 Our #immune systems are extremely “challenged”... from managing the virulence of trillions of organisms in #microbiome/virome communities, to controlling #pathogens acquired in food, water etc, to dealing w/ enviromental #toxins/exposures etc☝️C’mon!
