Alzheimer's, Gall And Kidney Stones?

Coronary artery disease and strokes are not the only chronic diseases that can be caused by chlamydia. Researchers recently reported finding evidence of the bug in twenty-seven of twenty-nine autopsy brains of people with Alzheimer's disease, but in only one of nineteen brains of age matched non-Alzheimer's patients. It was identified inside the glial cells that surround neurons, and may have been attracted to these cells because they had ready been damaged by some other degenerative process. There is also evidence that gall stones and kidney stones can be caused by bacterial infections. One report revealed that gall stone patients have a 100 to 1,000 fold higher level of clostridia and other bacteria normally found in the intestinal tract. These organisms generate deoxycholic acid, which triggers the liver to excrete cholesterol rich bile, a significant risk factor for the formation of gallstones. Other researchers have shown that antibiotics can lower the concentration of these bacteria to levels below the threshold needed to make gallstones.

Finnish researchers have also now found that certain "nanobacteria" can be responsible for the formation of kidney stones. These microorganisms have escaped microscopic detection until recently, since they are smaller than some viruses. Using highly sophisticated microchemical techniques, they showed that these minute bacteria build a mineralized coating around their exterior, upon which additional minerals and proteinaceous materials gradually accumulate, that eventually form a stone. In one study of 30 kidney stones, all were demonstrated to have traces of nanobacteria in their cores.
