For example, autoimmune diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease have been linked with mood disorders, anxiety and depression.

Gut bacteria linked to Parkinson’s disease, study says — NaturalHealth365 – August 27, 2019

(NaturalHealth365) One of the most promising areas of personalized medicine is the continued research of gut microbiology and its pivotal role in human health and longevity science – especially as it relates to Parkinson’s disease.

For example, groundbreaking research at The University of Helsinki Institute of Biotechnology in Finland published findings in EBioMedicine that the gut microbiology of Parkinson’s disease (PD) patients is significantly correlated with disease progression. Compared to the control group of relatively healthy persons, those with PD have vastly different gut bacteria. →

25 Reasons to Avoid the Gardasil Vaccine — Collective Evolution – May 23, 2019

It has been 13 years since the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) supplied fast-tracked approval for Merck’s Gardasil vaccine—promoted for the prevention of cervical cancer and other conditions attributed to four types of human papillomavirus (HPV). The agency initially licensed Gardasil solely for 9- to 26-year-old girls and women, but subsequent FDA decisions now enable Merck to market Gardasil’s successor—the nine-valent Gardasil 9 vaccine—to a much broader age range—9 to 45 years—and to both males and females.
