Faecal transplant researchers identify 'super-pooper' donors | Science | The Guardian
Writing in the journal Frontiers in Cellular and Infection Microbiology, Dr Justin O’Sullivan and colleagues say while recurrent C Diff infections are down to the overgrowth of a particular type of bacteria, a more complex shift in conditions seems to be present in ulcerative colitis where a “super-donor effect” is seen.

Internal 'clock' makes some people age faster and die younger – regardless of lifestyle | Science | The Guardian
Scientists have found the most definitive evidence yet that some people are destined to age quicker and die younger than others - regardless of their lifestyle.

The findings could explain the seemingly random and unfair way that death is sometimes dealt out, and raise the intriguing future possibility of being able to extend the natural human lifespan.

“You get people who are vegan, sleep 10 hours a day, have a low-stress job, and still end up dying young,” said Steve Horvath, a biostatistician who led the research at the University of California, Los Angeles. “We’ve shown some people have a faster innate ageing rate.”

Acid reflux drug linked to more than doubled risk of stomach cancer – study | Science | The Guardian
[instead of changing diet - you give pills ] The study concluded no firm cause and effect could be drawn, but doctors should “exercise caution when prescribing long-term PPIs … even after successful eradication of H plyori”.

Responding to the study, Stephen Evans, professor of pharmacoepidemiology at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, said: “Many observational studies have found adverse effects associated with PPIs.

“The most plausible explanation for the totality of evidence on this is that those who are given PPIs, and especially those who continue on them long-term, tend to be sicker in a variety of ways than those for whom they are not prescribed.”

No evidence sugar-free soft drinks aid weight loss – study | Life and style | The Guardian
http://nutritionfacts.org/?fwp_search=artificial+sweeteners&fwp_content_type=video --- Soft drinks made with artificial sweeteners, such as diet colas, do not help people lose weight and may be as big a part of the obesity problem as the full-sugar versions, academics have said.

A paper by researchers at Imperial College London and two universities in Brazil contends that artificially sweetened beverages, often called diet drinks, are just as big a problem as those containing sugar. There is no evidence they help people lose weight, they say, possibly because people assume they can eat more because their drinks are low in sugar. &! http://bit.ly/2iaXzbX

Superbugs are on track to kill 10 million people by 2050 if things don’t change—fast
[under reported ] Today, 23,000 Americans die each year from infections caused by antibiotic-resistant bacteria, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Across the world, the estimated annual mortality rate is 700,000. If these trends continue, by 2050, 10 million people globally will die each year, as the potent diseases of previous centuries return to their old force, according to the Review on Antimicrobial Resistance. In 2012, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported an estimated 450,000 new cases of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis. The emergence of multiple drug-resistant pneumonia and E. coli bacteria strains are predicted to contribute significantly to increased mortalities due to their ability to spread rapidly through populations.

Sugar tax: What is the UK's most sugary drink?
One of the highest levels of sugar is found in Old Jamaica Ginger Beer. Its Extra Fiery drink has 15.7g - or just under four teaspoons - of sugar per 100ml. The recommended maximum daily sugar intake for someone over the age of 11 is 30g a day, or 7.5 teaspoons. [...] Some manufacturers are adding sugar substitute stevia to their drinks to make up for a shortfall in sweetness when they reduce the sugar content, he says. But others are simply cutting the sugar. [ - http://nutritionfacts.org/video/effect-of-sucralose-splenda-on-the-microbiome/ ] [ AND THE HOT DRINKS ARE LOADED! ] //&!

Epstein Barr virus // Wikipedia - It is best known as the cause of infectious mononucleosis (glandular fever). It is also associated with particular forms of cancer, such as Hodgkin's lymphoma, Burkitt's lymphoma, gastric cancer, nasopharyngeal carcinoma, and conditions associated with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), such as hairy leukoplakia and central nervous system lymphomas. There is evidence that infection with EBV is associated with a higher risk of certain autoimmune diseases, especially dermatomyositis, systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, Sjögren's syndrome, and multiple sclerosis.

In Defense of Fiber: How Changing Your Diet Changes Your Gut Bacteria | TIME
Here’s why fiber is so important to intestinal flora: gut your microbes feed on it and produce short-chain fatty acids, which get absorbed into the bloodstream and regulate the immune system and attenuate inflammation, Sonnenburg says. “That means if you’re not eating dietary fiber, your immune system may be existing in kind of a simmering pro-inflammatory state,” he says—the very state that predisposes us to different Western diseases. “Our diet and deteriorated microbiota are really a major piece of the puzzle in trying to understand why Western diseases are rising like crazy.”

The Cure for Brain Diseases Is in Your Gut - The Daily Beast
Dr. Christopher B. Forsyth and his team have recently demonstrated significant gut permeability, more commonly referred to as “leaky gut” in Parkinson’s patients. Their research has further revealed that this increase in gut leakiness enhances inflammation as well as the production of a unique protein—alpha-synuclein—both of which are characteristic of this disease. [...] In research headed by Dr. Rongzhen Zhang at the University of California, San Francisco, he and his team discovered that, like the Parkinson’s research had revealed, in ALS there is also an increase in the leakiness of the gut. And again, like in Parkinson’s, their research revealed that this mechanism caused a robust increase in inflammation, a mechanism that has long been known to be associated with ALS. [...] Inflammation, as a mechanism, is thought to underlie virtually every degenerative condition that humans experience—including Alzheimer’s disease, coronary artery disease, diabetes, and even cancer.

Antibiotics During Pregnancy May Increase Child's Obesity Risk - NYTimes.com
A new study reports that antibiotic use during pregnancy is associated with an increased risk for obesity in the child. Researchers studied 436 mothers and their children from birth until age 7, gathering data on antibiotic use from interviews. After controlling for gestational age, birth weight, breast-feeding, maternal body mass index and socioeconomic status, among other variables, they found that antibiotic use during the second and third trimesters was associated with an 84 percent increased risk for obesity in the child.

Dr. Lawrence David did a fascinating study showing that you could dramatically and quickly alter your gut biome when you eat meat, and meat can specifically create inflammatory bacteria. [...] Dr. McCarty looked at the role of excess essential amino acids has on affecting health and was amazed to find, as I was, the negative effects of excessive protein in the diet. He found that excess protein coming mainly from animals, caused obesity, heart disease, and cancer. In the discussion of the article he states, that the data was so overwhelming he changed to a vegan diet. He concludes with, “ I suspect the single injunction, ‘ do not eat animal products has the the potential to do more for world health than all of the abstruse wisdom in all of the worlds medical libraries”. I certainly agree with him.

Mikrobiom: Bakterien im Körper stellen Antibiotika her - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Körperapotheke hält gesund Das Beispiel lege nahe, dass das Mikrobiom als Medikamentenapotheke entscheidend dazu beiträgt, dass wir gesund bleiben, sagt Fischbach. Darauf weisen auch zahlreiche weitere Untersuchungen hin. ANZEIGE Es gibt deutliche Hinweise, dass das Krankheitsrisiko steigt, wenn der Bakterienzoo sich aus deutlich anderen Organismen und Bakterienmengen zusammensetzt als üblich. So werden von einer gestörten Darmflora etwa Nährstoffe aus der Nahrung nicht mehr richtig aufgenommen, was bei Kindern zu Wachstumsstörungen führen kann. Bei chronischen Darmerkrankungen experimentieren Mediziner bereits mit Bakterientransplantationen: Sie siedeln die Mikroben aus dem Darm eines Gesunden in gleicher Menge in dem eines Kranken an - mit großem Erfolg.
