Autoimmune? Maybe not

Some of the latest information about macrophages carrying unkilled bacteria
to other parts of the body gives one pause.  Is is possible that some
problem that was thought to be caused by antibodies gone astray might
actually be caused by bacteria carried from elsewhere?  Dr. Mark Levine's
description of Vitamin C as an immune-cell antidote with regards to
neutrophils might equally apply to macrophages.  Is is possible that
an adequate supply of Vitamin C would prevent Type 1 diabetes, which has
been thought to be caused by erroneous attact of antibodies, but might
be from unkilled bacteria in macrophages?
