Future Type 1 Therapy May Involve Parasitic Worms

We had this pretty interesting story on Diabetes News Hound this morning. I think the headline says it all: Future Type 1 Therapy May Involve Parasitic Worms

that's so gross. i would never take that kind of treatment, even if it became the only way to "cure" diabetes.

Don't think it's supposed to be a cure.  "the worms can control the immune system and ward off inflammatory diseases, such as Type 1 diabetes."

So, looks like your safe batts!
