Are Happy Gut Bacteria Key to Weight Loss? | Mother Jones
It's super long, but this is one of the most fascinating articles. Especially when getting to the begining of page 3. ---------- Also see "Scientists Officially Link Processed Foods..." bookmarked a few days ago. -- In the part where they talk about the orange juice, I wonder if it was pulp or no-pulp juice. This is important because I'd wager it was the pulp variety, meaning it had the fiber of fruit. If it was the no-pulp variety, I'd be curious as to why the results came out this way. -- On the 1st page, they say that before passing through the birth canal, we are 100% human. After, we are 10% human, meaning that we get a lot of microbes from passing through the birth canal. I immediately thought "maybe this is what causes a lot of modern disease"... then on page 2, WHAM! Question answered when it says people who were born via C-section have higher risks of celiac disease, Type 1 Diabetes and other diseases.

Scientists Officially Link Processed Foods To Autoimmune Disease | True Activist
Between this article and the "gut bacteria" article bookmarked on 5/1/2013, I've learned that more focus on minerals and bacteria is important. .............. Make sure you get to the last section "Stick To The Good Salts" --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- "Dr Hendel believes too few minerals, rather than too much salt, may be to blame for health problems." --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- Wow! Particularly interesting: "At Wieliczka in Poland, a hospital has been carved in a salt mountain. Asthmatics and patients with lung disease and allergies find that breathing air in the saline underground chambers helps improve symptoms in 90 per cent of cases."

ScienceDirect.com - Mutation Research/Fundamental and Molecular Mechanisms of Mutagenesis - Paracelsus to parascience: the environmental cancer distraction
"The major causes of cancer (other than smoking) do not involve exogenous carcinogenic chemicals: dietary imbalances, hormonal factors, infection and inflammation, and genetic factors. Insufficiency of many micronutrients, which appears to mimic radiation, is a preventable source of DNA damage."
