How Probiotic Bacteria Protect Against Inflammatory Bowel Diseases

  ScienceDaily (Apr. 26, 2012) -- Some lactic acid bacteria can alleviate inflammation and therefore prevent intestinal disorders. Scientists have now decoded the biochemical mechanism that lies behind the protective effect of the bacteria. In experiments with mice, the researchers succeeded in demonstrating that lactocepin -- an enzyme produced by certain lactic acid bacteria -- selectively degrades inflammatory mediators in diseased tissue. This new evidence might lead to new approaches for the treatment of...

Breastfeeding Linked to Healthy Infant Gut

 Bacterial Colonization Leads to Changes in the Infant's Expression of Genes ScienceDaily (Apr. 29, 2012) -- Early colonization of the gut by microbes in infants is critical for development of their intestinal tract and in immune development. A new study, published in BioMed Central's open access journal Genome Biology, shows that differences in bacterial colonization of formula-fed and breast-fed babies leads to changes in the infant's expression of genes involved in the immune system, and...

Avocado Oil: The 'olive Oil of the Americas'?

  ScienceDaily (Apr. 22, 2012) -- Researchers have found that consuming fruit bolsters cells' power centers against harmful free radicals.

However, as we find out more about how oxygen molecules work inside the body, more attention is being paid to...
