Mycoplasma (and bacteria in general) as a Cause of Narrowing of the Cardiovascular Valves

Cause of Cardiovascular Calcification

Research shows a connection between the level of valve calcification and the presence of mycoplasma pneumoniae and chlamydia pneumoniae in the affected tissue. The study speculates that the calcification is not an age-related degenerative phenomenon, but rather a reaction to the presence of bacteria.
