Latest Research Found Genetic Mutations Has One Of The Causes Of Severe Eczema

For more than 17 million people in the United States living with severe eczema – a condition that results in dry, and itchy rashes.

In a study, mutations in a gene known as CARD11 were identified as one underlying cause for severe eczema. Severe eczema can run in families, which suggests a genetic cause.

These CARD11 mutations can prevent T cells  from being able to do their jobs normally. The mutations prevent the cells from taking in enough glutamine, which is needed for T cells to maintain their proper function. This also explain why some patients with severe eczema have a history of pneumonia, warts, and other types of lung and othee skin infections.

While a mutation in the CARD11 gene is only one possible cause for severe eczema, its discovery can influence new therapies. Current treatments, including over-the-counter and prescription pills or creams, focus on bringing down the inflammation and relieving the itching. TRY THIS

Human Gut Germs Dictated by Diet

​Lifestyle advances over thousands of years may have altered people’s microbial makeup, study suggests.

What you eat, or don’t eat, affects the mix of germs in your digestive tract, new research indicates.

Thousands of microbial species thrive in the human intestine, helping people digest fiber and make vitamins and other molecules. They also help strengthen the immune system and protect against potentially harmful bacteria, Stanford University School of Medicine researchers say.

The rise in farming some 15,000 years ago dramatically changed the human diet, the researchers noted. And in just the last 100 years, people have become increasingly sedentary and less likely to consume fiber-rich whole grains, fruits and vegetables.

Antibiotics, cesarean sections and other lifestyle changes have also helped shift the composition of microbes in the human gut, the study authors added.

The significant modifications made to the human diet over the past 10,000 years could help explain the loss of diversity in the germs residing in the typical modern digestive tract, the study suggests.

Our own microbiota can change significantly from day to day, or even within hours, in response to what we’ve been eating. “Fiber’s all that’s left at the very end of our digestive tract where these microbes live, so they’ve evolved to be very good at digesting it.
