Video: “How vaccines train the immune system in ways no one expected” by Christine Stabell Benn, MD

We have previously before mentioned that some vaccines have certain “side benefits,” such as reducing the risk of juvenile diabetes. In this video, Christine Stabell Benn talks about her observations on what vaccines have done beyond the prevention of the targeted disease.

The video is about 18 minutes long and given in a TED conference format.
