Beyond killing tuberculosis
(McGill University Health Centre) Historically, our view of host defense against infection was that we must eliminate pathogens to eradicate disease. However, this perspective has recently been challenged as scientists have taken a lesson from plant biologists about an ancient strategy involving the ability to 'tolerate' rather than 'resist' infection to maintain health. This concept, referred to as 'disease tolerance', provides an opportunity to develop new strategies that mitigate the consequences of infection. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

We are right to be confused, according to Carlo Rovelli ’s elegant and wonderfully brief summary of what we do and don’t know about time. “One after anothe...
