Fat Substitutes Don't Work

submitted by: admin on 09/21/2013
Fat substitutes such as Olestra result in weight gain, not loss! They disrupt the body's mechanisms to control food intake.

Side effects include abdominal cramping, diarrhea, and oily stools....

submitted by: admin on 09/21/2013
The microflora of the GI tract is an organ at the interface of the internal and external milieu that helps us adapt to the environment in which we live.

No one wants to get colon cancer and colonoscopy has been touted to be the best way to find asymptomatic precanceous and cancerous lesions of the colon that could be lifesaving. This makes logical sense, however, the United States Preventive Services Task Force in now questioning this test for healthy people who have no GI symptoms.   

Synthetic Poop Cures C. Diff Infections

A synthetic "poop" was developed by researchers at the University of Guelph in Canada that works to treat C. diff infections of the GI tract. Now that stool transplants are becoming commonplace in the treatment of C. diff infection, an artificial culture of normal flora of the GI tract has been developed that avoids potential problems of occult infections...
