As I reinterpret this article, if you feel less miserable (than I did a 
few weeks ago), you go out, network, and inadvertantly spread the misery.

But didnt Sheldon Cohen show years ago that the bigger the network, the 
better the immune system?

Somehow, I am a bit skeptical about the practicalityof this epi model.
