Your Body Fights Sickness Like a Caveman — And That’s a Good Thing

Thousands of years ago, modern humans met Neanderthals in Europe at whatever the equivalent of a singles bar was. They started having a bunch of sex, and now we exist. In the throes of creating the future of humanity, Neanderthals gave us two things: their kickass, pterodactyl-fighting immune systems and allergies.

Those are the discoveries of two papers published Thursday from researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, the Institut Pasteur and the National Center for Scientific Research in Paris.

We’ve already heard that 1% to 6% of modern Eurasian genomes came from two forms of early man, the Neanderthals and the Denisovans. But the new studies explore how our inherited traits affected genes, specifically Toll-like receptors, which detect and respond to things like bacteria, fungi and parasites.

A Single Kiss Can Transfer Way More Germs Than You Ever Knew

Kissing just got a whole lot less romantic–at least for germaphobes.

A new study shows that a single French kiss can transfer up to 80 million bacteria from one person to another.

For the study, 21 couples visiting a zoo in Amsterdam were asked to lock lips for 10 seconds. Before the kiss, one member of each couple drank a yogurt drink containing specific strains of bacteria. After the kiss, the researchers swabbed the mouth of the partner who hadn’t drunk the yogurt, and then did a bacterial count of the strains from the yogurt to arrive at the 80 million figure.

‘Wrong’ immune response aids TB

Some bacteria, including tuberculosis, are able to invade because the body launches the ‘wrong’ immune response, say researchers.

Instead of fighting off tuberculosis, people with a severe infection produce a protein which attacks viruses, the journal Science reports.

About 8.7 million people are infected with tuberculosis every year.

The findings may explain why viruses can make people more susceptible to bacterial infections.

A spring peak in tuberculosis infections may be linked to the effects of viruses circulating in winter, experts suggested.

While the number of people diagnosed with lupus has more than tripled over the past four decades, researchers remain baffled, for the most part, as to what exactly causes the autoimmune disease.
