Dmitriy Shegelman Bionb 4270 Journal Lecture 11 (9/30) Slide 84 contains a chart that claims parasites protect people from allergies. Isn’t it the other way around? Parasites are more prevalent in those with no allergies because their immune systems are not hyper-reactive, explaining both allergy absence and infection state. On a separate note, I believe worms and other parasites have the potential to secrete various substances that could act as antigens or as immunologic suppressors, only complicating the picture… Lecture 12 (10/5) What about varying flavor sensitivity, or lack thereof, in different populations? Would inheritable taste bud mutations lead to more or less infection? Lecture 13 (10/7) Despite all the potential pathways identified for the proposed hypothesis, a glaring omission is the lack of reproductive data about the women of the study’s population.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
