Your Gut and Your Health

The body is an amazing thing. That is an understatement that should probably start any article written on the body.   This article will be focusing on your intestines, the billions of squatters that have taken up residence, and how to evict the ones that are causing problems.

The average person has around 100 trillion bacterial cells in their gut. This number means little, since most of us can’t begin to picture the size of a cell, bacterial or otherwise, so let’s give it some context. You have between eight and ten bacterial cells in your gut for every personal cell in your entire body. You are outnumbered more than eight to one by these bacteria. When these bacteria are healthy and appropriate, they provide an outstanding defense mechanism, attacking any invading bacteria that enter. When your gut bacteria become unhealthy or inappropriate, they wreak havoc on your system in a wide variety of ways.

The Case for Supplements

Written by Mike Gill

An interesting story broke this past February. The Attorney General Office of New York accused four major retailers of selling fraudulent and dangerous herbal supplements. This is interesting in that it points out several things about supplements that most people don’t know. It would seem strange that a state Attorney General would be filing this action rather than the FDA, but this in one of the interesting side notes of this story: the FDA has no jurisdiction over supplements, unless those supplements have caused harm. The other thing that is eye-opening about this article is how egregious the mislabeling of herbal supplements is. 80% of the products tested contained no traces of the herb they claimed to contain. It is clearly a time to look at the legislation governing supplements. In the meantime, should we give up on supplements altogether, as many suggest, or is it time to be more cautious in choosing our brands?
