Asthma can be caused by endotoxin (LPS)…from air filters

Not a clickbait title but the actual (and fascinating) findings of several studies. I think the biggest find here is that endotoxin (LPS) can directly cause asthma and exacerbate already existing asthma. To my knowledge, while mainstream medicine does admit that asthma is an inflammatory condition, it continues to insist that the direct cause is … Read more Asthma can be caused by endotoxin (LPS)…from air filters

Asthma is driven by endotoxin and its receptors (TLR4, TLR5)

Yet another study demonstrating the crucial role of the endotoxin/LPS (and its sentinel receptors) in a chronic idiopathic condition – in this case asthma. The cause of asthma is, as usual, officially claimed to be unknown but it is known that asthma can be exacerbated by environmental pollution (even though a causal relationship is flatly … Read more Asthma is driven by endotoxin and its receptors (TLR4, TLR5)
