It’s time to make the transition to an antidote to brain-eating bacteria, according to an article published on Wednesday in the medical journal JAMA Psychiatry.
The article was written by Dr. Robert L. Jankovich, a professor of medicine at Johns Hopkins University and a founding director of the Neurotoxicology Institute at Johns, who specializes in brain-disease treatments.
Jankovich is the author of the book Brain-eating bacteria: A Guide to a Cure, published in 2016 by Simon & Schuster.
“Brain-eating bacterial infections are so prevalent, they are often overlooked, and it’s important that we are aware of their prevalence,” Jankiewicz said in a statement.
“The importance of brain-eaters is becoming increasingly apparent, but the burden of brain illness in the United States is not being taken seriously.”
Brain-eater bacteria is the cause of a wide range of ailments including depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, epilepsy and Parkinson’s disease.
It’s believed that the cause behind the bacteria is an infection of the lining of the brain, which is thought to result in inflammation of the nerve fibers that control the brain’s function.
Jakobs’ study looked at brain-damaged patients and their relatives who died from brain-feeding bacterial infections, including the bacteria Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
Jackobs and his colleagues found that the bacteria cause about 15 percent of all brain-destroying infections in the U.S. The bacteria is also found in the blood and can cause severe infections like septicemia.
“The incidence of brain infections and the severity of infections in people with severe infections is higher than it is in healthy people, and this can be explained by the fact that the patients with severe infection have higher levels of brain cells than people without severe infection,” Janksi said.
“This is because severe infection leads to inflammation of neurons in the brain and this leads to more brain cells dying, leading to more damage.”
Jankiewicz also said that people with brain-degenerative diseases and the brain-killing bacteria can suffer from more brain damage.
The bacteria can cause neurological damage in people who are obese or who have high blood pressure.
Janksi also said there is a risk of infection of brain tissue from eating food contaminated with the bacteria.
He noted that even though brain-Eating bacteria is a rare cause of brain infection, people who eat it often may have more serious infections like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson�s disease.
“It is important that people are aware that there are risks from eating foods contaminated with brain Eaters bacteria,” he said.
