Posted on Aug 27, 2019 in Health Optimization, Medical Rewind

Dr. Buttar and Robert Scott Bell have a lot to say about this article on the February 25, 2019 Advanced Medicine Show (click link above to listen to the show) Bacteria in the gut may be able to boss around the genes found in their hosts – at least, in worms. According to a new study published in the journal Cell, trillions of bacteria found within the average gut may be practicing a sort of “interspecies communication” that transcends language.  Gut bacteria secrete a molecule called nitric oxide. In an attempt to understand how bacteria communicate with its host,...

Germs in the Gut May Affect Autism, Study Finds

Posted on Jun 5, 2014 in Autism, Medical Rewind

Bacteria living in the intestines and colon may affect symptoms of autism by breaking down important message-carrying chemicals, researchers reported Monday. They found that children with autism have a very different make-up when it comes to gut germs, compared to children without autism. More importantly, chemicals produced by these bacteria may affect the brain, they told a meeting of the American Society for Microbiology. It’s a small study and needs to be replicated, but the team at Arizona State University is seeking permission to try experimental fecal transplants to see if they might...
