In brief: Illnesses
Show whenever we are susceptible and our immune stem is basically overwhelmed and cannot keep it out of the body but must fight it.
Children get infections, teens, and adults all get illnesses and they can show any time. And there are even some young people developing chromic illnesses these days...That may have ore to do with diet and lifestyle more than world travel.
