Diet affects mix of intestinal bacteria, risk of inflammatory bone disease



Diet affects mix of intestinal bacteria, risk of inflammatory bone disease Diet-induced changes in the gut's bacterial ecosystem can alter susceptibility to an autoinflammatory bone disease by modifying the immune response, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital scientists reported. The findings appeared September 28 as an advanced online publication of the scientific journal Nature.
