Let's continue the "science blows our minds" train we love to ride here at FitPerez!!
Scientists have just discovered a key immune system gene that could allow us to turn our immune system off and on like a light switch. Suffice it to say, it could be what we've needed to combat infectious diseases including HIV, hepatitis and tuberculosis!
