Hmm, not sure that all the scientists around the world who've been working tirelessly on a Covid-19 vaccine would agree with that sentiment

Well they'd all be out of a job if they did agree with it Sheba...But you have to admit, if it wasn't for your immune system the human race would have been wiped out years ago...

Ooooooooooo yes it does Todger....

My father in law visited a doctor a long time ago when he was suffering with a bad cold. He asked the doctor if he could help, and the doctor replied....."I can give you medication and it will clear up in just seven days, however, it's going to take a whole week if I don't"

Wish I could source it, but there used to be an advert for a pill that said something like "cures your cold within 7 days". Left to its own devices, a cold will only last a week!!

That's true Dex, but it will be your immune system that will be putting in the hard work.

Very true, but then when your immune system breaks down, it's very handy to have doctors and medicine around

Absolutely Sheba, I probably wouldn't be here without doctors. I most certainly wouldn't be able run.
But I think we must be careful not to take these 'Thought for the Day' too literal...

If I were Volty, would have substituted Appeasing for Amusing.
