Washington: Stress levels can make you more vulnerable to illness by altering the composition of bugs living in your gut."These bacteria affect immune function, and may help explain why stress dysregulates (impairs) the immune response," said lead researcher Michael Bailey from Ohio State University.
"This is the first evidence that the gut microorganisms may play a role in innate immunological stress responses," said Monika Fleshner, professor of integrative physiology at the University of Colorado, Boulder. Because gut bacteria have been linked to diseases like inflammatory bowel disease, and even to asthma, a future goal of the study is to determine whether alteration of gut bacteria is the reason why these diseases tend to be worse during periods of pressure.
