The f.varium is in all our gastro/respiratory/genito tracts living quite cohesively and quietly. Interesting, however the UC/fv connection. It does say a high percentage of UCers with active disease have it.
So you're saying everyone has f. varium in them? If so, then of course UC sufferers would have f. varium, because everyone does.
Or am I misunderstanding?
Hi...I was too general in my statement..I should have said fusobacterium species. I found some good info on both, one especially that lists the different names of fusobacterium varium.
It seems a high percentage of UCers have a high count of F.Varium when in active disease state. I don't know if it's in those who are in remission..I have to do the reading.
The most interesting point is the fusobacterium and production of butyrate.. So, Horus or whoever else talks about butyrate...hope you'll come on and clarify some of the scientific aspects of this.
