Probably. But the anecdote the OP told was about eating dirt and chewing on a stick. Things that are demonstrably good for children but evoke horror in the average modern parent.
Whoops, wrong paper. Try this one:
You can find more if you like. Sublethal exposure to antimicrobials like triclosan has been shown to select for drug resistant bacteria. If that scares people, good.
The OP made the point that with GSM hardware is decoupled from paid services, so he was talking about the advantage of the GSM (2GSM, UMTS, LTE) standard.
The GP is wrong in suggesting that it would have been shortsighted and is using a lot of the myths that Qualcomm spread about GSM to promote that view. Qualcomm could have made a decent phone standard, but they felt the carriers wanted "a digital version of AMPS" and that's pretty much, functionally, what they originally created, with messaging and data being grafted on, clumsily, later, in a game of catch up that they never really won. By the time the TIA standards finally supported SIM cards the carriers were so locked to a SIMless platform they weren't prepared to implement it. And at that point it was pretty much clear that GSM/UMTS standards were so far ahead that Qualcomm would never catch up.
CDMA is being phased out. Sometimes the market works... over a period of decades...
You've managed to screw up the basic tenant of homeopathy. Like cures like. So people immune to polio peeing in the water wouldn't do any good. Only people WITH polio peeing in the water. Since there aren't many of those around anymore, we should be seeing huge outbreaks of polio, homeopathically speaking.
It's possible, in theory, with some vaccines. But the original pertussis vaccine was a killed bacteria vaccine, which means that the entire organism was present. For it to mutate to survive the immunity it would have to turn into something completely different, so resistance is not a factor in this case.
Some new vaccines may use a limited number of antigens instead of whole organism. If they use few enough, the organism could conceivably mutate to not express that antigen anymore. But even newer vaccines that are in wide circulation include many antigens, so that's still not likely.
"But there is no real relationship between these agents and the kinds of antibiotics that come in pills."
"feature those products being used by women rather than men."
Lots of products aimed at men feature women too. If you want to sell something to women, put a woman on it. If you want to sell something to men, put a woman on it. We just all like to look at women, rather than men.
There is evidence, including a large Finnish study, that the more variety of microbes you're exposed to as a child, the healthier your immune system as an adult and the less likely you are to have autoimmune diseases.
And then took six years and a few more billions to make them profitable (maybe)?
She's got a multibillion dollar portfolio of people's profiles for... tens of billions of dollars!
Doesn't seem like such a hot plan.
It's easy to fuck up if you decide to try to do the entire thing yourself. If you go to a (cheap) tax preparer like H&R Block, you generally end up filing a tax return that's unlikely to be audited, and if it is is likely to be accurate as long as you answered the preparer's questions truthfully.
And if you're about to tell me how terrible it is you might need a tax preparer's services, then consider the fact that before such companies existed it was common to hire a considerably more expensive accountant to do this kind of thing. The tax code is only superficially more complex than it was fifty years ago.
Fine and jail you? Only if you've been dishonest, and continue to be dishonest throughout the audit.
You mainly have to beware of commercials for Fruity Oaty Bar and other Blue Sun products.
