New Study Shows Your Antibiotics Could Predispose You to THIS Disease
Alex Reid here with your Monday roundup.
Did you hear the latest story about antibiotics?
A recent study showed that increased use of antibiotics may predispose users to a disease that could change their whole world...
How would you feel if one day you noticed that everything you’ve known about yourself began to change before your eyes...
This disease could take the most alert, peppy person and essentially cripple their motor skills, slowing down their movements drastically...
Symptoms also include rigid muscles, which could be very painful.
And now researchers shake the alarm bells.
A study at the University of Helsinki in Finland shows that antibiotics can predispose folks to Parkinson’s disease.
The University of Helsinki says:
The strongest associations were found for broad spectrum antibiotics and those that act against anaerobic bacteria and fungi. The timing of antibiotic exposure also seemed to matter.
The study suggests that excessive use of certain antibiotics can predispose to Parkinson's disease with a delay of up to 10 to 15 years. This connection may be explained by their disruptive effects on the gut microbial ecosystem.

In other news, the FDA just approved a contact lens that could make history.
Need vision correction?
Easy. Throw in a pair of contacts.
Contact lenses are a popular choice for eyesight correction.
But never have I heard of a lens that prevents your sight from getting worse.
It’s the very first contact lens that researchers say could slow the progression of nearsightedness. The medical term is “myopia.”
United Press International publishes:
The single-use, disposable, soft contact lenses should be discarded after one-day use and are not intended to be worn overnight. They are indicated to correct and slow progression of myopia in children with healthy eyes, the FDA noted.
Like a standard corrective lens, one part of the MiSight contact lens corrects the refractive error to improve distance vision. Concentric peripheral rings in the lens also focus part of the light in front of the retina to reduce the stimulus causing myopia progression.
Researchers tested MiSight’s safety and effectiveness on 135 children, ages 8 to 12 years old.
Your body. Your eyes. Your mind. All systems interact.
For this reason, I’m not entirely shocked by this latest news.
Scientists at the University of Birmingham and University of Amsterdam, in a joint effort, discovered that inflammation is linked to mental sluggishness.
The University of Birmingham says this level of fatigue can be “often as debilitating as the disease itself.”
If you suffer from inflammation and have been experiencing “brain fog,” it’s not just you.
Of the 12 million UK citizens with a chronic medical condition, many feel the same as you.
