Hi, This article was released regarding an interesting paper. "Implicated in MS however, are the sub-types Th1 and Th17 which excite the immune response and which, without the correct balance from the suppressor cells to calm it down again, have the capacity to cause inflammation and promote MS activity." "Crucially, what the research paper here shows is that these original T cells are profoundly influenced by the dietary fatty acids we introduce to the gut, through their interaction with bacteria living in our gut, the so-called gut microbiome. The more middle- and long-chain fatty acids we consume, the greater the growth (from the T cells) of the potentially damaging Th1 and Th17 cells. The more short-chain fatty acids we consume, the more likely there is to be growth of the suppressor T cells (Tregs) which modulate the immune system and therefore avoid autoimmune disease." In ME there is a Th2 activation. Should we eat more fast food?
