Examining the connections between pathogens and chronic conditions could lead us to a new germ theory of disease.
Product
Description

Inflammation is a primary cause of many chronic conditions, from Alzheimer’s disease and arthritis to asthma and inflammatory bowel disease. But what causes the inflammation? Could infectious agents be the root of most of our chronic disease–including cancer?

Find out about infections and mental illness. Is it possible that there is a link between schizophrenia and a common pathogen?

Other hard-to-treat conditions such as multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) might all be triggered by infection. Could a vaccine help prevent these devastating conditions and even cancer?
