What foods really improve intestinal microflora?

Microbiome – a community of diverse bacteria that live in our intestines – has long been a hot issue of a healthy lifestyle. I am very interested in this topic and recently I found an article that may be useful to us all. I offer its translation to your attention.

Scientists are trying to figure out how a microbiome can affect our health, weight, mood, skin, and the ability to resist infection. And the shelves of supermarkets and pharmacies abound with all kinds of probiotic products containing live bacteria and yeast, which, we are assured, can improve intestinal microbiome.

To test this, the British BBC team Trust Me, I‘m A ​​Doctor, organized an experiment. It was attended by representatives of the Scottish National Health System (NHS Highland) and 30 volunteers and scientists from across the country. Dr Michael Moseley says: Continue reading

Can a child be a vegetarian?

As part of preparing material about vegetarian children, the editors of the Live portal invited me to answer several questions that often confused parents. Here is what I said.

Live: Is vegetarianism safe for the baby?

Me: To begin with, vegetarianism does not equal healthy eating. This must be understood. Indeed, for example, pasta with tomato sauce, pizza and cola, fruit juice with donuts – this is plant food, that is, formally vegetarianism, but such a diet can not be called useful. Therefore, propaganda of vegetarianism without specifying that it is based on whole plant products is not possible.

Food Parachute: This trick will reduce the health effects of junk food

My Stanford teacher, Dr. Clyde Wilson, described a simple trick: it will come in handy for many who are unable to refuse junk food, but at least think a little about their health. But Dr. Wilson knows what he’s talking about: he received a doctorate in chemistry at Stanford University and at the same time teaches at UCSF medical schools, and also heads the Sports Medicine Institute. In his article, Dr. Wilson tells how to continue to eat pizza and fast food, significantly reducing their detrimental effect on our body. I hasten to share a secret with you, translating, with the permission of the author, an article in Russian:

“Today we take food as a drug, because in busy schedules we need a quick way to keep moving. And the food industry provides us with tasty, inexpensive and convenient food that successfully satisfies our need for fat, sugar, and calories. According to the World Health Organization, the number of patients with non-communicable diseases in the world exceeded the number of infectious patients, and this is mainly due to the use of refined, industrially processed products and products of animal origin. That is, our excuses for employment have caused problems on a global scale: the epidemics of obesity and diabetes, not least. Continue reading
