Bacterial Fats, not dietary ones, may deserve the blame for heart disease

 

Bacterial Fats, not dietary ones, may deserve the blame for heart disease Researchers discovered that the fat normally found in atherosclerosis, does necessarily match the fat found in natural dietary fats. In fact the lipid that may cause heart disease is not manufactured by animals but by Bacteroidetes found in the mouth.

Common Antacids Promote Liver Disease?

Common Antacids Promote Liver Disease?

Researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine have discovered evidence in mice and humans that stomach (gastric) acid suppression alters specific gut bacteria in a way that promotes liver injury and progression of three types of chronic liver disease.
