    Yep, our bodies are one big receptacle for creepy crawly things, most of them serving a purpose. But what's just as fascinating is when a strange critter tries to enter, the autoimmune system kicks in with a vengence, seeking and destroying the invader.

    Thinking of ourselves as a single organism simply is not accurate.
