How the food you eat affects your gut – Shilpa Ravella

View full lesson: http://ed.ted.com/lessons/how-the-food-you-eat-affects-your-gut-shilpa-ravella

The bacteria in our guts can break down food the body can’t digest, produce important nutrients, regulate the immune system, and protect against harmful germs. And while we can’t control all the factors that go into maintaining a healthy gut microbiome, we can manipulate the balance of our microbes by paying attention to what we eat. Shilpa Ravella shares the best foods for a healthy gut.

    Most grains in the US are toxic. Glyphosate. Some antibiotics have been linked to permanent microbiome damage, from which one cannot recover without a stool transplant. Sugars can also create Kibesella bacteria.

    Are bacteria’s that weak? Can’t they protect themselves?

  10. yoe91 on April 18, 2020 at 10:06 am

    Bifidobacterium is such a dork.



  11. Fatima Hamdan - EIS Grade 4 on April 18, 2020 at 10:08 am

    When the bacteria’s die, do they put some sort of grave in our body?

  14. hainley simpson on April 18, 2020 at 10:09 am

    Why was their no information on meat in this video? Even though meat is essential to human health and function. Disliked for not even speaking about a balanced diet. All I see is some kind of misguided attempt of some sort.



  15. Miroya Reinders on April 18, 2020 at 10:10 am

    Sounds like the wholefood plantbased diet

  19. Mimi Huang on April 18, 2020 at 10:15 am

    The animation was incredibly distracting. I founf that it was too abstract- it didn’t compliment the woman’s message. Loved the message though.

    God is our sustainer. The creator behind all creation. The designer of the heavens and earth. The entire universe you believe in but haven’t seen. All praise be to Allah. The one and only. No man no idol no statue no created thing. He is outside time, matter and space. He is the creator, he is one, the most high the most merciful. Allah



  46. Mosfet on April 18, 2020 at 10:48 am
