There is currently a theory being seriously contemplated in the (human) medical circles that the huge increases in autoimmune diseases are due to lack of parasites in the human population in the affected locales. They are speculating that our bodies are made to cope with a parasite load and since there isn’t a whole lot of that the immune system is “over-capacity”. I am not saying it has anything to do with horses or to stop deworming but I am guessing that their bodies are also made to fight against the little pests. Mind you - we would lose some horses and some humans in the process of getting us all back in sync with the natural order. And I am guessing that not all individuals would survive childhood and foal-hood without deworming.
