Biologics that suppress our Immune System/Cancer
Be wary and save this option for last if you can. I have lost two friends recently in their 60's. Both had been on biologics for their conditions and both died young, in their 60's. And research does indicate that with your immune system suppressed you are more likely to develop cancer and other nasty diseases, shortening your life span. For some there are no options I realize but it will be the last option I try. I give it a minus 10 years on the very concerned scale.

I'm sorry to hear of your loss of 2 dear friends.
