Gut Bacteria Could Guard Against Parkinson's

London: A common gut bacteria that boosts digestive health could slow – and even reverse – the build-up of a protein linked to Parkinson’s, a new study suggests. Building on previous research linking brain function to gut bacteria, this study in a Parkinson’s model of roundworms, identified a probiotic – or so-called good bacteria – […]

Gut Bacteria May Increase Bowel Cancer Risk

London: Researchers have found that people with a certain type of bacteria in their gut may be at a greater risk of developing bowel cancer. The gut microbiome is the collection of fungi, bacteria and viruses within our gut. There is an increasing evidence that the make-up of the microbiome plays a role in human […]

Know What Gut Bacteria Have To Do With Weight Gain

New York: A team of US researchers has found a molecule that helps synchronize the absorption of nutrients in the gut with the rhythms of the Earth’s day-night light cycle – a discovery that has far-ranging implications for obesity in affluent countries and malnutrition in impoverished countries. Dr Lora Hooper and her research team at […]

Infants' gut bacteria can help combat food allergy: Study

New York: Healthy infants have intestinal bacteria that can prevent the development of food allergies, research has found. Researchers from the University of Chicago, Argonne National Laboratory and the University of Naples Federico II in Italy transplanted gut microbes from each of eight infant donors: four healthy and four with cow’s milk allergy, into groups […]

Gut bacteria key to protecting against arsenic poisoning, claims study

New York: Microbes in the human gut play an important role in protecting against arsenic toxicity, new research suggests. Arsenic toxicity is a problem that affects an estimated 200 million people worldwide who are exposed to arsenic through contaminated food and drinking water. Long-term exposure to arsenic is associated with increased risk of cancer and […]

Here's how gut bacteria can curb harmful effects of high BP

London: To a large extent our well-being depends on what bacterial guests in our digestive tract consume as researchers have found that beneficial gut microbes can produce from dietary fibre a fatty acid called propionate which can protect against the harmful consequences of high blood pressure. The substance calms the immune cells that drive up […]

Antacids, antibiotics may up obesity risk in childhood

New York: Antacids or acid suppressants and antibiotics may alter the type and volume of gut bacteria that have been associated with increased risk of obesity particularly if taken for longer periods in early childhood, warns a new study. The study explored that the structure of gut bacteria has been linked to various aspects of […]

Gut bacteria can contribute to diabetes: Study

London: Gut bacteria has the ability to affect how cells respond to insulin and can thus contribute to Type-2 diabetes, says a new study. The study explored that the gut microbiota of people with treatment-naive Type-2 diabetes can be linked to a different metabolism of the amino acid histidine, which is mainly derived from the diet. […]

Gut bacteria linked to cause of heart attack

Toronto: The gut microbiome plays an important role in an individual’s risk for atherosclerosis, one of the major causes of heart attack and stroke, says a study. Atherosclerosis is a disease in which plaque builds up in the arteries. The researchers believe that the new finding could open the door for new treatment options for […]

Gut bacteria may up obesity risk: Study

London: The presence of gut flora in the intestines may cause health benefits for some people, whereas it increases the risk of obesity in the others, researchers have claimed. While sourcing a new link between gut bacteria and obesity, the animal based study found that certain amino acids in our blood can be connected to […]

Manipulating levels of gut bacteria may cut obesity, diabetes risk

New York: Manipulating levels and ratios of gut bacteria can help prevent obesity and diabetes — a common risk factor for developing cardiovascular diseases, finds a new study. The study with the rodent equivalent of metabolic syndrome showed evidence that the intestinal microbiome — a ‘garden’ of bacterial, viral and fungal genes — plays a […]

New type of Botox discovered from animal gut bacteria

Toronto: Scientists have discovered a new source of neurotoxin, known for its paradoxical ability to remove wrinkles yet cause an illness associated with food poisoning from a strain of animal gut bacteria, a finding that can potentially expand its therapeutic applications. Clostridium botulinum toxin was able to jump into bacteria called Enterococcus faecium, through plasmids, […]

How gut bacteria, broccoli can help keep bowel cancer away

Singapore: Researchers have developed a cocktail of bacteria and cruciferous vegetables that can potentially turn into a targeting system that seeks out and kills colorectal cancer cells. Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer worldwide, after lung and prostate cancer. Although the 5-year survival rates for earlier stages of this cancer are relatively good, […]
