Bacterias Identified that May Lead to IBD

Harvard School of Public Health researchers find two microbes that initiate gut inflammation that leads to IBD in mice.

It still remains controversial as to whether it is specific bacterias that cause IBD or the disruption of the microbiota as a whole.

Bonus statistic: Approximately 30,000 new IBD cases are diagnosed each year in the U.S.

Holy crap Batman, that’s more than twice the population of my home town.

    I think the Harvard School Of Medicine is on the right track, but a little behine. Research that crohns and candida albicans have a relationship. Many people who have been diagnosed with crohns disease have gotten remission by using and anti-yeast diet and or anti-fungal drugs. Many so called autoimmune diseases have been overcome using these methods. Some scientist and doctors believe there is a relationship between yeast infection/candida albicans and cancer. Check out the book by Doug Kaufman and Dr. David Holland-The Fungus Link
