The findings add to mounting evidence that gut health affects overall wellbeing in ways we don't fully understand.
The researchers suggested that understanding the gut-lung axis better — especially how it affects respiratory disease progression — could also provide appropriate avenues for the development of therapies, drugs, and possibly even a cure for COPD in the future
The researchers found that the antibodies are constantly being produced in the brain sinuses instead of only at the time of infection.
Being in close proximity or accidentally brushing up against someone else may be all it takes to transmit certain microbes.
While human beings stand out with their physical performance, migratory birds have good endurance as well.
