This new study is interesting, not for its direct link to MS but for the implicicatins that not only rogue bacteria but fungus can be a key factor for the development of an AI illness such as Crohn's:

It's interesting to note that the fungus identified was Candida tropicalis. Candida has been implicated in the past as a key factor in triggering AI illnesses (even including MS) but the science behind this has not been very clear or definitive.
This link with fungus IS interesting. Candida (albicans?) crops up regularly in the OMS forums and some of its symptoms - impaired brain function, fatigue, balance problems, bladder & bowel problems including bloating and gas - sound rather familiar?

I came across a reference to boron having anti-fungal properties and boron supplements being an effective remedy for Candida albicans. A bit more ferreting around on the web led to an article in the Journal of Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology on 'Evidence that boron down-regulates inflammation. . . '

https://www.ars.usda.gov/research/publi ... 115=171287

The first lines of the abstract read:
"We have previously demonstrated that dietary boron supplementation was able to prevent the onset of, and ameliorate ongoing, collagen-induced arthritis, as well as significantly reduce the incidence of experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis, suggesting that boron has anti-inflammatory properties."

(Encephalomyelitis - according to Wikipedia - is is a general term for inflammation of the brain and spinal cord, and Encephalomyelitis disseminata is a synonym for multiple sclerosis)

Maybe boron would be worth looking into?

The OMS site & forum are brilliant! Thanks, everyone! :D
