    Use your imagination. I don't remember if it was these studies or not, but insulin does temporarily protect from an endotoxin challenge. As I said previously I think a secondary function of the endocrine system is to modulate LPS. I have not spent a great deal of time looking at the mechanism by which insulin would protect from endotoxin, I'm just going off a hunch I had when I was thinking about things that tie all this together.

    Needless to say, the endotoxin lens is a neat way to look at things, also because of my own interests in how it modulates behavior.
