DID YOU KNOW that compared to participants with less than 37.5 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity per week, those with greater amounts of activity had a 60% to 69% mortality rate reduction? According to the Medicine in Science and Sports Exercise study, even weekend warriors, who usually work out twice on a weekend, showed a similar decreased mortality rate with those who engaged in activity more frequently.
Fungal Infections Present a Major Challenge
Bonnie & Steve: Fungal infections, especially yeast-related, are emerging as a major medical challenge.
Researchers report in the Nature Communications an unexpected finding that the common yeast, Candida albicans, a type of fungus, can cross the blood-brain barrier and trigger an inflammatory response that results in the formation of granuloma-type structures and temporary mild memory impairments. Interestingly, the granulomas share features with plaques found in Alzheimer's disease, supporting future studies on the long-term neurological consequences of sustained C. albicans infection.
An increasing number of clinical observations indicates that fungi are becoming a more common cause of upper airway allergic diseases such as asthma and sinusitis, as well as other conditions such as sepsis, a potentially life-threatening disease caused by the body's response to an infection.
The researchers suggest the possibility that in some cases, fungi also could be involved in the development of chronic neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and multiple sclerosis.
We have been at the forefront of diagnosing and addressing the deleterious effects of yeast overgrowth, or ultimately, candida. We have always said that a yeast-free diet is the toughest to follow because yeast is a pathogenic organism that LOVES its warm, moist host and does not want to leave it.
A new study from mBio suggests that yeast does not even require oxygen to cause disease. The pathogen could even use low oxygen environments to evade immune attack and to become more virulent. Anything this virulent presents a major challenge dietarily, supplementally, and sometimes prophylactically.
One thing is for sure. It is imperative that one with yeast overgrowth or candida gets it under control. We have years of experience doing this.
