    Viral infections cause a significant amount of systemic inflammation. I think this systemic inflammation from viral infections like Epstein Barr virus and other viral infections can cause an increase in intestinal permeability and trigger an immune system reaction from the lipopolysaccharides getting into the bloodstream.

    What else can cause systemic inflammation? Any kind of chronic stress or physical stress can. Antibiotics can, of course, cause or contribute to dysbiosis and increased intestinal permeability.


    I think the current research of the 4 NIH-funded collaboratives focused on the gut, the brain, the immune system and metabolomics are rate on the money. I think that's where they will get their best answers. Obviously they do too.:)
