The immune system is incredibly important, thanks to its role in fighting off dangerous invaders in our bodies. But sometimes it gets it wrong, targeting harmless proteins from things like nuts or dairy products and triggering allergic reactions that ironically can themselves be fatal.

But in the process of acquiring such superpowers, the cells must occasionally relinquish other, more mundane skills -- including the ability to produce certain nutrients.
