Perhaps the most exciting news is that research under the prebiotics is expanding. This study found that "reduced oral nutrition contributes to the gastrointestinal toxicity of total body irradiation through changes in the microbe."
In short, the study "shows the potential of nutrition-based intervention [like prebiotics] in patients treated for hematological cancers." Another notable development of functional medicine!
It is unnecessary to say that we are more intrigued and optimistic than ever about the future of bowel health and look forward to seeing what is happening from these studies. Here we hope more research to reduce inflammation, eliminate disease and improve the overall health of humanity.
