    Our own immune systems are slowly killing us.

    I've been curious to see how these immune suppressing drugs would do under this level of scrutiny.

    With modern societies hygiene, eradication / containment of deadly diseases, and improved medical care when sick, maybe we don't need overactive surveillance-style immune systems anymore. Suppression of harmful immunologic pathways might be the key to improved longevity.
