You do everything in your power to stay healthy. You keep an eye on your blood pressure, exercise regularly and eat foods that aren't high in cholesterol… All in the hope to keep your heart healthy and free from disease.

It's an unhealthy gut!

Just 15 years ago, only one in 100,000 children had autism.
Today, it's more like one in 50, says the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention.
And it's a devastating disease that affects how a child behaves and adapts to the environment.
Because of this shocking increase in the disease in such a short time, more research is being done to find out not only why, but what's behind the increase.

So your doctor says you have Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Now what?
While you know eating certain foods causes your stomach to turn, cramp, bloat and sends you rushing to the loo, he hasn't given you much hope in a sense that there's something you can do about it.
He's simply sent you home and told you to stay away from the foods you know upsets your stomach.
The problem is, many doctors don't diagnose the underlying cause of IBS. And it's not as simple as foods irritating your gut that's causing all the issues.
In fact, your IBS is probably caused by a condition with a shockingly graphic name: Leaky gut gyndrome.
It's exactly how you picture it. Your gut leaks.
But substances don't leak into your gut, they leak out - and that's the whole problem!

What's worse, as women enter menopause their bodies stop producing oestrogens that help make natural lubrication.

They found that despite your genes, which cause you to have a higher risk of diabetes, you can still actively control whether you develop the disease or not.

In the 50s, High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) hit the market with a bang.
Not only is it cheap to add to foods, it makes them taste better too.
But along with it - and the false advertising saying how good it is for you - came a rise in the incidents of diabetes, heart disease and cancer.
Yet manufacturers still put it in everything from tomato sauce to salad dressing to sugary treats.

Almost every new diet that comes out banishes dairy.
Take the Paleo diet for instance. This way of eating closely resembles that of our ancestors and so doesn't include many grains or dairy.
Researchers say our ancestors didn't run out and milk wild game before they slaughtered it for the meat. And so it's not fit for you to drink because your system doesn't know how to digest it properly.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, other researchers and experts say there are so many beneficial aspects of milk and, because we have it available, we should use that to our full advantage.
So the question sticks: Is dairy to be or not to be?
Take a look at it in terms of digestive health and how it affects leaky gut syndrome and you then make your own deduction about whether it should be part of your diet or not.... ››› more
