One thing is clear, there are plants (foods) which are bad for you. My question is if there are foods that are bad for you, are there foods which are particularly good for you, better than just healthy foods?
This question brings to mind, another.
It is clear that some bacteria are bad for us, but that there are some bacteria living inside of us that are beneficial.
What about viruses? Are there any that naturally have beneficial effects?
That’s an excellent question, Tim. I don’t have much time today, but just a quick Google search turned out this (which doesn’t seem all that much):
It has been shown that many primary viral infections prevent superinfection caused by a homologous secondary virus. Interference between viruses occurs when infection by one virus results in the inhibition of replication of another virus. For example, hepatitis A virus infection suppresses hepatitis C virus replication, and may lead to recovery from hepatitis C virus.
