Gum bacteria hold the potential of curing Alzheimer

None of us would have ever imagined that gum bacteria drew out from the periodontal region can be of any aid in patterning a flawless treatment plan for curing Alzheimer’s disease. These gum bacteria cause the brain cells to undergo autophagy or self-eating mechanism under which the cells plan their survival and defence against invading organisms by degrading and recycling material into amino acids. These amino acids released by the cells help in the build up of polypeptides within the neurons of nervous system.
