ARE MICROBES STEALING YOUR MIND?

This theory supports my dislike of so-called french kissing, which is, keep your damn germs to yourself, because your gut and the tip of your tongue may be carrying microbes that could be detrimental to my neurological health.

The latest dementia-microbe proposition comes from University of California at San Francisco psychiatrist Steve Dominy. He studies neurocognitive disorders in HIV-positive patients, including the contribution of proteins from the gut that pass through the blood-brain barrier and may affect the neural health of AIDS patients.

From this work Dominy has detected what he believes is a link between a specific bacteria and some forms of dementia. Last year, he co-founded Cortexyme, which has raised $2.5 million to investigate his idea, one of the first ever companies in what might be termed the “bacterial neuro-degeneration” space.

This comes as scientists are realizing that these micro-critters are far more important influencers in our health and in a broad range of disease and wellness factors than previously assumed.

Right now 100 trillion bacteria are swarming, chewing, spitting out chemicals, and infesting your gut, liver, and brain, and the tip of your tongue. Bacteria outnumber human cells 10 to 1, although they are so small that they collectively comprise a mere 1-3 percent of your body mass.

They influence everything from the digestion of food to Crohn’s disease, a chronic, often debilitating inflammation of the bowels that seems to be influenced by too little “good” bacteria and too many “bad” bacteria in the gut. Scientists are delving into how microbes affect heart disease, diabetes, cancer—and the immune systems of newborns.

In June the New York Times Magazine ran a story titled: “Can the bacteria in your gut explain your mood?”, which reported on new evidence that microbes in our stomachs can secrete neurochemicals like dopamine that correlate with depression and anxiety, and can impact other aspects of mood.

Could bacteria hold the answer to an Alzheimer’s cure? Some researchers say yes.

Can you attach these crystals in a (metal) chain hanging something, and with a bunch linked up, how powerful could it be?

+Alan Greenspan I don't have any numbers, but it wouldn't be very powerful. The voltage is high but the current is low and each time a crystal is hit, the output happens for only a very brief time.

As a living organism, the human body is home to millions of microbial life forms and bacteria. Without microscopic vision, we can’t see them unless aided by technology. If you’re the squeamish sort, this is probably for the best. The handprint in the petri dish above is causing quite a stir on the Internet and it belongs to microbiology lab technician Tasha Sturm’s 8-year-old son. "It's partly to show that there are microbes everywhere," said Stu...

The scientific discoveries that were made with no thought of making money often turn out to be the most profound science, and, ironically, often lead to a gold mine.
