Environment Affects Immunity, Not Genes

Good science read of the day: “Environment, Not Genes, Dictates Human Immune Variation, Study Finds.”

I discussed this with a coworker the other day. When parents overuse hand sanitizer and other sanitizing products around the house, they put their household at risk of getting ill. Think: How would your body react after living in a perfectly sterilized environment for several days and then you are thrown out to school or work, where germs breed like crazy?

It seems perfectly logical to me.
