The most common lifestyle risk factors of heart diseases and stroke are unhealthy diet, lack of physical activity, tobacco smoke, and heavy alcohol drinking, and in a new study, researchers have discovered another link between gut bacteria and health. The new study has found that the bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract could have an influence on the risk of cardiovascular diseases.

Researchers reviewed previous studies and found that a diet high in fat compromises the health of gut bacteria by causing gut dysbiosis. Microbial imbalance in the gut was found to cause the progression of cardiovascular diseases by increasing two major risk factors: atherosclerosis and high blood pressure or hypertension. Atherosclerosis is a disease in which the arteries build up plaque, which is made up of fat, cholesterol, calcium, and other substances found in the blood. This disease can result in serious ailments, such as heart attack, stroke, and death. On the other hand, hypertension is a disease wherein the pressure of blood flowing against the walls of the arteries as the heart pumps blood is too high.
We’ve all heard that early detection is vital for many medical conditions, but when it comes to prostate cancer, an Oxford academic has claimed that thousands of men who have the illness would actually be better off if they had never been diagnosed.

According to Professor Freddie Hamdy, many men with slow-growing tumors that hadn’t spread underwent treatment they didn’t need out of sheer anxiety over the presence of the tumor.

He said that a diagnosis prompted many men to feel worried and depressed, opting to get treatment even when it wasn’t in their best interest.

Professor Hamdy said: “You can over-detect [prostate cancer] in people, when it wouldn’t cause them any harm. Over-treatment is a consequence of over-detection because when you tell a patient that he has cancer, you give him a new identity, you give him a new passport which he is going to have to carry for the rest of his life.
A new study found that a healthy gut can lessen the effects of trauma, as reported by Science Daily. Researchers from Stellenbosch University analyzed the relationship of gut microbiome and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). They compared the gut microbiomes of 18 individuals with PTSD to 12 people who also experienced trauma, but did not develop PSTD. They found a combination of three bacteria that were different in people who suffered from PTSD. These were Actinobacteria, Lentisphaerae, and Verrucomicrobia. (Related: Gut health linked to anxiety, depression and autism.)

Results showed that the participants with PTSD had smaller numbers of the three bacteria in contrast to the trauma-exposed participants. In addition, those who experienced trauma when they were a child had lesser levels of two out of the three bacteria, namely Actinobacteria and Verrucomicrobia. These bacteria are known to regulate the immune system.
The cure for cancer can come from the very substance that sustained us during the earliest stage of our lives. Scientists accidentally discovered that a substance in breast milk could be the answer to killing tumor cells. Nicknamed Hamlet (Human alpha-lactalbumin made lethal to tumor cells), the possible cancer cure reportedly attacked cancer cells without harming healthy cells. Moreover, it doesn’t have any of the crippling side effects of chemotherapy.

The surprise discovery triggered further studies to find out if Hamlet could have similar effects on patients with cervical and bowel cancer after trials on bladder cancer patients yielded positive results. Hamlet — a protein called alpha-lactalbumin — helped patients shed off dead tumor cells days after treatment.

“We were looking for novel antimicrobial agents, and new breast milk is a very good source of these. During one experiment we needed human cells and bacteria to be present, and we chose human tumor cells for practical reasons,” said Professor Catharina Svanborg, Immunologist at Lund University in Sweden and main proponent of the study.

Høres ut som litt grunnleggende kunnskap om kroppens behov hadde vært fornuftig, i steden for din "sunne fornuft".
Sulforafan er godt dokumentert ☺

Hei ☺
Fermenterte grønnsaker vil alltid ha en stor helsegevinst pga regulering av bakteriefloraen i magen ☺
Ville da fokusert på grønnsaker for Blodtype O ☺
