The article summarizes a report published in a 2015 issue of "Cell" which found following an infection of the foodborne pathogen Yersinia pseudotuberculosis, mice had several changes that weakened gut tissue immune systems and maintained inflammation, which suggests frequent infections can result in chronic diseases in later life.

    Yersiniosis is a food-borne illness that has become more prevalent in recent years due to human transmission via the fecaloral route and prevalence in farm animals. Yersiniosis is primarily caused by Yersinia enterocolitica and less frequently by Yersinia pseudotuberculosis. Infection is usually...
