The 5 First Steps Toward Healing Your Gut | Care2 Healthy Living

You won’t know exactly what foods are difficult for you to digest until you try eliminating them from your diet. The term FODMAP refers to “Fermentable, Oligo-, Di-, Mono-saccharides and Polyols.” Eating a low-FODMAP diet means eliminating high-fructose foods (sugary fruits), gluten-containing grains, maltitol and sorbitol (sugar alcohols found in stone fruits), lactose (aka dairy) and legumes. All of these foods are known to be poorly absorbed by some people. After you eliminate them for a period of about six weeks, you can try adding back one food group at a time.

Transcript: Disclosing Conflicts of Interest in Medical Research
One of the critical questions to ask when reading a medical journal article is: Who funded the study? In most journals, researchers are required to identify their sources of funding. So, what’s the problem? Well, researchers can obscure the true origin of financial support—they can hide it, disguise it, or even launder the money through a front group. Case in point: a study downplaying the risks of lung cancer, funded in part by the Foundation for Lung Cancer: Early Detection, Prevention, and Treatment. That doesn’t sound so bad, until you realize it’s underwritten by millions from a tobacco company. See, there’s no obligation to disclose a funding source’s source of funding. This allows companies to evade financial disclosure requirements, and makes it harder to follow the money trail. Read more...
