by entero, do you mean enteroviruses? you must read the recent paper about the influenza A activating certain proteins of HERV-W. something has primed us for autoimmune disease and we experienced a further trigger which started this cascade. enteroviruses are just more co-infections can cannot control. even EBV Is likely not the cause..it just may have played a part in the trigger. there will be more details in the next paper.....there is a reason the HERV proteins weaken the immune system...there is a mechanism by which this is going on (don't ask for details because i do not know them). i was just at a neighbour's house watching the oscars. one of the women there was telling me how a woman who had a home invasion and witnessed her entire family killed, developed full-blown RA right after.
