Default Viris triggers and immune system response.

New research suggests an infection with a common strain of reovirus,
which is often symptomless, could be behind why some people's immune
systems react to gluten as if it were a dangerous pathogen instead of a
harmless food protein.

Interesting. But those of us with Fibromyalgia have suspected a viral trigger for more than 25 years.

In March of 1990 I developed a flu-like illness. I say "flu-like" because there was no fever, just that hit-by-a-truck feeling. It hung on for weeks. My doctor dismissed it with "Oh, flu does that." The joint pain started in May.

Some years later I went to a fibro-coping seminar. The moderator asked "How many people had a viral illness in the weeks prior to fibro symptoms starting?" And 3/4 of the attendees raised their hands.
We have enough gun control. What we need now is idiot control.
