This American Life had a story (rerun) airing 4/2/10 that includes a segment about hookworms and their possible use for treating autoimmune disorders. To listen online:
Enemy Camp 2010
The hookworm segment is number 3.
Originally aired in slightly different format on 7/8/03., in slightly different format in ’04, and the most recent incarnation above. I guess I never knew how much TAL reran/redid episodes.
In other news, last night I finished off the mini eggs from our Easter box. A. got a few, but then, he ate all the peanut butter cups, so I think we’re still even.
