  • Bacteria living in your mouth may increase digestion problems or gut diseases.
  • This kind of bacteria results in causing inflammatory diseases (IBD), Crohn’s Disease and ulcerative colitis.

As stated by the study published in the Science journal, minute toils of bacteria from the mouth end up to the gut and locate in the intestine which can easily lead to chronic inflammation. The researchers have suggested to research on the same for ultimate findings in humans.
It has also been regarded that a healthy person’s gut usually does not have any presence of oral bacteria. But increased levels of oral bacteria have been found in the guts of infected people with certain kind of diseases.

Thereby, the study aims to find a new treatment for gut diseases and remove oral bacteria. As a part of the study, saliva samples were taken from patients acquiring Crohn’s Disease and IBD, and the sampled bacteria was transplanted into mice bred which cannot produce their own gut bacteria. It was found that a strain of bacteria in the saliva called Klebsiella pneumoniae could live in the intestines of the germ-free mice and stimulate immune cells known as “T Helper Cells”, which can give rise to an inflammatory response.


It is important to keep your mouth healthy by cleaning your teeth and maintaining a proper diet. Include such foods to your diet to maintain oral hygiene.

While everyone is making their big fat Indian wedding dreams come true, they are also adding their carbon footprint and undue energy consumption. Modern couples are now looking for ways to have a wedding with a sustainably conscious mindset. It's become about incorporating less waste, locally sourced and seasonal food, natural materials over the use of plastic. Mindful wedding planning and decor includes the use of recycled paper and goods along with eco-friendly venue needs. Check out this quick guide to achieve a sustainably conscious wedding without compromising on luxury:

With the use of locally sourced materials and local artisans coming into play, the wedding instantly becomes sustainable. Include the work of local vendors ensure minimal packaging requirements, thus saving on unnecessary plastic and lamination. It also decreases the need for transporting elements from other cities and hence lowers the carbon footprint. For instance, at one of our weddings, we made use of sand art for a setup in Jodhpur. This helped promote local work while also being environmentally friendly with zero wastage of other materials. In another instance from Rajasthan, the traditional glass-blown technique was used to build decor items while giving a cultural touch to the destination wedding.
