PHT 072: Rheumatoid Arthritis – Can Antibiotics and Vegetarian Diets Help?

Today we are discussing Rheumatoid Arthritis and how this disease may be caused by infections.  Today we will be highlighting a bacteria found in the gut and urinary tract of RA patients termed Proteus mirabilis, which has been shown to be a critical factor in the propagation of the RA immune response.  We will also be discussing research articles on how vegetarian diets have been shown to help some RA patients, and even more exciting information on how the vegetarian diets have been shown to decrease Proteus mirabilis in the body.
