The Human Gut Is Responsible For Protecting You Against Cancer, Obesity And Infections

Julie Wilson, 19 April 2016
The science emerging on the functionality of the human gut, as well as the importance of beneficial bacteria, is nothing short of amazing.

Protecting your gut flora could help prevent type 1 diabetes

Julie Wilson, December 28, 2015
Trillions of minuscule cells occupy the human body. Surprisingly, most of them aren't human, but instead are microbial in nature, meaning they're made up of bacteria, archaea, fungi, protists and viruses.

Common food additives alter gut microbes, causing inflammation, colitis, obesity and diabetes

By Gutierrez: (NaturalNews) A class of food additives used in nearly all processed foods may be partially to blame for inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) such as Crohn's disease, and may also lead to obesity and diabetes, according to a study conducted by researchers from Cornell University, Emory University, Georgia State University and Bar-Ilan University in Israel, and published in the journal Nature on February 25.

The study was funded by the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America and the National Institutes of Health.

How your genetics and microbiome play a role in ammonia metabolism

By Jockers: (NaturalNews) When the body metabolizes sulfur compounds it produces ammonia as a byproduct. Ammonia is toxic to the body but most individuals are able to easily excrete it through the kidneys and urinary system. Unfortunately, some individuals have particular genetic mutations and microbiome alterations that do not allow them to effectively metabolize and eliminate ammonia.

Germ theory delusions collapse as new science reveals healthy people carry 10,000 different germ strains at all times

The human body is essentially a "germ" factory, but this is not necessarily a bad thing. A new study published as a series of reports in the journals Nature and Public Library of Science (PLoS) debunks the widely believed germ theory, or the belief that all germs are "bad," by showing that the average, healthy human body harbors more than 10,000 species of microbes that together maintain microbial balance and promote vibrant health.
