Parkinson’s + gut microbiome, perhaps pathogenic link

Shhh, don’t tell the 4eva!pro-vaccine people who said there could be no link whatsoever between the gut and the brain at any point in science forever and ever. The people who laughed at such connections. History shall laugh at them on our behalf. High road, people.

Research suggests that the intestinal microbiome may be altered in patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD), with some alterations being specific to the motor subtype.

The team found that bacteria from the Prevotellaceae family were significantly less abundant in the faeces of 72 PD patients than in 72 age- and gender-matched controls, at a median of 0.16% versus 0.77%, equating to a 77.6% reduction.

Low Prevotellaceae abundance (≤6.5%) was 86.1% sensitive for the presence of PD, but only 38.9% specific. Low levels were common in both groups, and Filip Scheperjans (Helsinki University Central Hospital, Finland) and co-workers note that reduced Prevotellaceae levels have also been reported in patients with autism and Type 1 diabetes…..

no plz stop idiot damon

Aaand you see where I’m going with this.
Dare I ask them to check their patients against their vaccination records for once? JUST ONCE.

Bearing in mind;
