Shared Notes


  • [1.5
    - The reduction of Bifidobacteria, the main producers of lactic acid capable of suppressing the growth of pathogenic bacteria, leads to an alteration of the immunitary system.
  • [1.6
    - Dietary fiber > competitive advantage to Bifidobacteria
  • [1.7
    - Loss of Bifidobacterium early in life has been associated with increased risk of developing autoimmunity, as seen in a birth cohort in Finland and atopic wheeze in another cohort in rural Ecuador.
