Some guy at work told me I should eat some worms to clear my auto-immune condition, is this a good idea? Should I take my kids out into the woods and let them roll around naked in the dirt? Western society has become so obsessed with cleanliness and sterility that we may actually be doing more harm than good by depriving our immune systems from the opportunity to learn, become trained and develop properly.
