(Natural News) A recent study revealed the hidden dangers of titanium dioxide (TiO2), an additive found in foods and medicines. Researchers from The University of Syndey (USYD) and other universities in Australia investigated whether TiO2 — an agent used in over 900 food products — can negatively impact human health.
“If there was a reason for using the titanium dioxide in food, I would say ‘OK, let’s consider it,’ but what is the reason? It’s purely [aesthetic],” explained Wojciech Chrzanowski, a professor at USYD and co-author of the study, which appeared in the journal Frontiers in Nutrition. →

(Natural News) A recent study from the Beckman Research Institute in California revealed a surprising link between gut bacteria and inflammation. The findings, which were published in the journal Nature Communications, identified an envelope molecule from Bacteroides fragilis to have anti-inflammatory properties. According to the researchers, the molecule – which they called capsular polysaccharide A (PSA) – promotes protective and anti-inflammatory responses during a viral infection. In particular, it can be used to protect the body against herpes simplex encephalitis (HSE), a severe form of brain inflammation with a 70 percent mortality rate without treatment. →

(NaturalHealth365) One of the most promising areas of personalized medicine is the continued research of gut microbiology and its pivotal role in human health and longevity science – especially as it relates to Parkinson’s disease.
For example, groundbreaking research at The University of Helsinki Institute of Biotechnology in Finland published findings in EBioMedicine that the gut microbiology of Parkinson’s disease (PD) patients is significantly correlated with disease progression. Compared to the control group of relatively healthy persons, those with PD have vastly different gut bacteria. →
