Mouth Bacteria Might Be Responsible for Your Migraines
A new study by the researchers from University of California San Diego School of Medicine suggests that people who suffer from a migraine carry a significantly greater number of mouth bacteria, which modify nitrates.
In their study, the scientists analyzed bacteria in the mouths of 172 oral samples and 1,996 fecal samples taken from the patients taking part in the study. Before that, all participants completed a survey about suffering from migraines.
Antonio Gonzalez, the first author of the research, explains: “There is this idea out there that certain foods trigger migraines – chocolate, wine, and especially foods containing nitrated.”
