My Mood: WOW! Link established between intestinal inflammation and systemic genetic damage
Default Very significant

And for a lot of reasons. Off the top of my head there is that GI inflammation opens both the gut barrier and the brain barrier. And then there is the question of H. pylori's role.

Default yes

It's worth your 'wow' and makes me chuckle at what excites us these days. I am not surprised, they have been talking about it starting in the gut and have found lewey bodies in the gastrointestinal tract. i'd like to know more about systemic genetics damage and chromosome damage.

my daughter is concerning me now, always had low energy but showing high protein and possible kidney ivolvement, blood in urine, i was pregnant with her when they discovered the pesticide in the milk.

we are so involed and i've been thinking of a way to contribute to the pdresearch online but i 'll post in that thread/

Thanks again for posting this information
I think this should have made a much bigger splash than it did. If the paper shows solid data, it would be extremely important to so many diseases. I will write more after I read the paper.

Default Lewy Bodies in the gut?

Anyone know how this discovery relates to what Dr. Langston was saying at the 2007 PAN Forum?
