Everyone knows that the brain is a valuable organ.  Well, for that matter, most of our organs are valuable.  It’s just that the brain is one of those where even subtle changes in the blood that feeds the brain can bring on big changes in behavior, that everyone can notice.  You can’t say that of most of our other organs.

 

A brand new study in the journal Neurology looked into some of these small changes, specifically with the immune system within.  The study looked at the disease, multiple sclerosis (MS), an autoimmune disease that attacks the white matter (nerve extensions) of the brain.  It also looked at probiotics as a possible treatment for the condition.
