Probiotics and Diabetes, a Possible Benefit Regarding Obesity.

Progurt Team - Tuesday, July 24, 2012

For several years, researchers have been exploring the role of good bacteria--probiotics--and obesity, zeroing in on the relationship between the two. Now a new review highlights the potential for probiotics to be beneficial in a disease closely associated with obesity: diabetes. Probiotics may be good for diabetes

The human intestinal tract harbors an incredible number (estimated 10 to the 14th power) of microorganisms, collectively referred to as colonic flora or gut microbiota, and composed of both "good" and "bad" (disease-causing) bacteria. Research has suggested that the colonic flora have an impact on how the body acquires nutrients and regulates energy, and that obese and lean individuals harbor some differences in their gut microbiota.

In fact, the authors of the new review note that "Although clearly no substitute for proper diet and exercise, manipulation of the gut microbiota may represent a novel approach for treating obesity, one that has few adverse effects."

Progurt Team - Friday, July 13, 2012

Dr Peter Dingle, author of My Dog Eats Better Than Your Kids, examines the life-threatening condition that is peanut allergy ...

Food allergies as well as many other atopic disorders have been increasing in children over the past few decades. Asthma has plateaued, while eczema and food allergies keep climbing.

Food allergies affect 4% to 6% of children and 3% to 4% of adults. The most common food allergens in children include cow's milk, egg, soy, peanut, tree nut, shellfish, and fish. Estimates for allergies to peanuts, other tree nuts or both are between 0.5% and 1% to 2%.

The occurrence of peanut allergy in childhood varies greatly in different countries but Australia is a country with a relatively high prevalence of peanut allergy.  More...
