apologies if this has already been posted or discussed...

but my sister heard an interesting story on news radio today and msn'd me the info and link in regards to parasites and inflammatory diseases.   i thought it was very interesting.

The immune reactions provoked by normal intestinal bacteria may be harmful rather than helpful. Inflammatory diseases of the bowel, including ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease (ileitis), and several types of arthritis have been linked to aberrant immune responses provoked by intestinal bacteria.

i sent it to my doc and am gonna see if i can get a parasite test and maybe the yeast one too.

who knows..
