For the 2014 Functional Forum Summit, I sat down with science journalist and author Moises Velasquez-Manhoff to discuss the content of his book, “An Epidemic of Absence-The New Way of Understanding Allergies and Autoimmune Disease”.
We spoke about how people who live in developed countries or are exposed to more microbes through vaginal birth, breast feeding, pets, nature, early exposure to daycares, and more are less likely to develop allergies, autoimmune diseases, Type 2 Diabetes, and more.
What you will learn
- How “hygiene obsession” can actually cause sickness
- Why some under developed have less disease than developed countries
- How not having a diverse microbiome can lead to autoimmune disease, allergies, and more
