Does Paratuberculosis in Milk Trigger Type 1 Diabetes?

September 8, 2019

[Music] type 1 diabetes arises following the autoimmune destruction of the insulin producing cells of the pancreas it’s often diagnosed in children and adolescents who usually present with a classic trio of symptoms excessive thirst hunger and urination as their blood sugar spiked and they need to go on insulin for the rest of their lives since their own immune system attacked and destroyed their own ability to produce it what would cause her body to do such a thing whatever it is it’s on the rise around the world starting after World War 2 understanding why and how the current pandemic of childhood diabetes was produced would be an important step towards reversing it a plausible guess is that of so-called molecular mimicry where by a foreign antibody generated like a bacterial virus provokes an immune response which cross reacts with a similar-looking protein on our own pancreas such that when we attack the bug our own organ gets caught in the crossfire okay so what pancreatic proteins are type 1 diabetics self attacking in the 80s protein was identified which in the 90s we realized looked an awful lot like a certain mycobacterial protein Mycobacterium are a family of bacteria that causes diseases like tuberculosis and leprosy and all newly diagnosed type 1 diabetic children were found to have immune responses to this mycobacterial protein but that didn’t make any sense I mean type 1 diabetes is going up in the industrialized world whereas you know TB and leprosy rates are going down well there is one Mikell bacterial infection in livestock that’s shot up with the industrialization and globalization of animal agriculture called para tuberculosis which causes Yanni’s disease in animals now recognized as a global problem for the livestock industry huh weren’t there like a dozen study suggesting that exposure to cow’s milk may be an important determine of subsequent type 1 diabetes in childhood according to two together an idea was put forward in 2006 couldn’t Mycobacterium paratuberculosis be a trigger for type 1 diabetes it was a compelling enough idea that researchers decided to put it to the test they attempted to test the association of map the full name for the bug Mycobacterium avium para tuberculosis with type 1 diabetes by testing diabetics for the presence of the bacteria in their blood and lo and behold most of the diabetic patients were found positive for the bug compared to only a minority of the healthy control subjects this evidence of map bacteria in the blood of patients with type 1 diabetes might provide an important foundation in establishing an infectious cause for type 1 diabetes these results might have implications for countries that have the greatest livestock populations and a high instance of both map and diabetes like the United States Yanni’s disease is what you call the disease when livestock get infected by the bug the reason the diabetes researchers chose Sardinia and island off the coast of Italy so because para tuberculosis is present in more than 50% of Sardinian herds if they think that’s bad though the last national survey of dairy herds in the u.s. shows 68% are infected with map especially those big industrial dairies 95% of operations with more than 500 cows came up positive it’s estimated the disease cost the US industry more than a billion dollars a year how do people become exposed the most important routes of access of map into the human food chain appear to be contaminated milk milk products and meat from infected cattle sheep and goats map or map DNA has been detected in both raw milk and pasteurized milk infant formula cheese ice cream muscle and organ tissues and retail meat how do we know para TB bacteria survive pasteurization because Wisconsin researchers bought hundreds of pints of retail milk off store shelves from three of our top milk producing states and tested for the presence of viable meaning living map bacterium retail milk and 2.8% came back positive for live parity by bacteria with most brands yielding at least one positive sample so it can survive pasteurization if parity B does end up being a diabetes trigger then these findings indicate that retail milk in the United States we need to be considered as a transmission vector why hasn’t the public heard about this research perhaps because the industry isn’t too keen on sharing this is from the Journal of Dairy Science fear of consumer reaction can impede rational open discussion of scientific studies [Music] you

  1. So type I diabetes is mostly congenital, does it mean that map infection happens during pregnancy? Sry im not a native speaker, maybe the Dr answered the question in the video

  2. No wonder science is now seen as public enemy when it conflicts to profiteers pocketbook….What our "beloved 'congressmen/women are doing about this type of problems? Less regulation….When there is smoke, just add gasoline and watch the fire of profit for a few grown while the rest get burned…..

  3. Sardinia and Finland are the “hottest” areas for type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) worldwide.

  4. bro when you going to make one,regarding fungal overgrowth or the gut flora in our microbiota, foods rich in myotoxins, do myotoxins effect our gut microbe, everyone talks about bacteria and probiotics but fungal cells look more like our DNA we are more fungal yeasty then we know. cordyceps mushroom crazy what it can do to an ant. how it effects our immunity. how obesity is really a comprised immune system. feed antibiotics to livestock it makes them chunky. all these chunksters with compromised immunities watching tv not in the gym eating shitt disconnected from fresh air, breathing in huge homes that are rich in lazyair spore …mycologist become, you want to make hella in the future something to study learn to grow your own Shrumeros👏🔎🍄🌌☝🍯✌🌲🍄👅👂👅

  5. Hey Michael, I just wanted you to know that I picked up 'How not to die' today and I can't stop reading. Every page is so flaming hot interesting you're just sitting there soaking it all in with enormous appetite. I've been since last summer eating a vegan diet (aside from an egg here and there but they'll have to go now) that is also more or less (98'ish%) free from gluten, refined sugar and processed food, but with lots and lots of organic food from Mother Nature (at least 75% raw) – and boy, what can I say…  I've healed my adrenal fatigue, I've gotten a whole new energy (not just levels, a new type really), clarity of mind and I've gone from pretty out of shape to a mean lean machine in just over half a year, meaning I've lost the extra weight I carried (9kg/20lbs) while at the same time putting on some muscle (yes, I've been training but not at all extreme in any way).
    You and other educaters online (mostly youtube) has helped me a lot and I owe you bigtime! Hell, I salute you for your service given and I also respect you greatly for your love of animals.

    That's all. Now, if you'll excuse me I've got a book to devour! (took a 10 minutes off to write this and eat a plate of mango)

    Much love from Sweden.

  6. I am not an animal milk fan, to inform is good but people are doing to eat and drink what they want regardless of disease links.

  7. Unglaublich! Danke für die Aufklärung! In der deutschen Wikipedia wird das Bakterium mit Morbus Crohn in Verbindung gebracht: Erschreckend…. Vor allem die Informationsvorenthaltung….

  8. Hello Doctor Greger, thank you very much for your great work. I always love to learn something new here and on and also in pages like ncbi. Lately I ve stumbled upon something in website in my country, that is exclusively made for Doctors and pharmaceutical staff in middle of Europe in Czech republic(due to laws in our country it seems there is restriction in giving information about medicine to public-but I ve came to website one time anyway) and there was basicaly this information in my language from another ,,paleo" doctors ,doctors: Dr. Artemis Simopoulos, of the Center for Genetics, Nutrition, and Health in Washington, D.C., and Dr. James DiNicolantonio, of Saint Luke's Mid America Heart Institute in Kansas.Have you ever heard about their work or about their studies?I think it is probably potentially harmful information to give to people who are taken as authority in health and preventing diseases so I am interested in answer. Thank you very much and keep up that good work 🙂

  9. Please Dr. Greger reply to my question:
    My nephew is 15 and has type.1 diabetes. My question is… theoretically if he stops consuming milk protein for ever. the autoimmune reaction which kills beta cells will never occur again? since he is only 15 he can still grow some beta cells and theoretically not inject any insulin in the future?

  10. Many research shows M.A.P causes Crohn's disease…Dr. please shade light.. I suffer from crohn's disease from past 8years…
