We know everyone is different, but our immune system is by far the most variable part of our body.

From person to person, our immune system can be programmed in radically different ways, leading to some people being suspectable or resistant to a range of different inflammatory and autoimmune diseases, not to mention infections and cancers.

So why exactly do we have such radically different immune systems from person to person? Is it age? Gender? Environment? And is this diversity good or bad?
