It's really a miracle that any of us are born, and then go on to survive..

This has made me reconsider suicide and even my views on abortion. I wasn't going to kill myself, but I was kind of hoping for death until I saw this. Not only are our bodies constantly at war, from the moment of contraception, the contracepted egg is marked as foreign and targeted for DESTRUCTION throughout its entire nine months of development. The placenta allows for passage of vital oxygen and nutrients, but not blood which is loaded with immune cells. So, how does the fetus evade attack without immune cells? I guess the placenta is a real fortress. And did you know sperm are masters of subversion?I found this fascinating. As foreigners in a hostile body, they employ several strategies to survive their mission, including a fluid coating that may hide their antigens. I always thought women were the masters of subversion. I guess not. If you ever get a chance to look at Nat Geo June 1986, do it. The pictures are fascinating.
