"I Feel like Crap",...again

Sorry gang I'm sick as Hell again. Could this be the Final Daze...right I should be so lucky. Say anybody out there got a spare gastro-intestinal system handy?

Aw I'm okay I'll just take my Meds, and go back to bed!

Btw about "Machine gun Barbie up there. Hey these are evil times. A girl ain't safe. So some 'protection' is called for. 'Know what I mean.

Stay Tuned.


  1. this study points out that intestine microbes are killed when using artificial sweeteners. see url with my name, Kyo.

    this is the juicy part.....

    "Elinav then completed a controlled experiment to compliment the
    observational data: He recruited seven healthy volunteers, ages 28-36, who
    normally avoid artificial sweeteners, and told them to consume the maximum
    amount of the FDA's acceptable daily intake of saccharine for a week (At 5
    milligrams per kilogram of weight, that's like a 150-lb. person eating nine
    packets of Sweet 'n Low, according to Greatist). Throughout the week,
    researchers monitored their gut bacteria by examining their feces.

    After seven days, four out of seven participants had begun to develop
    glucose intolerance. The evolution of their gut bacteria over the course of
    the week might explain why. The people who became glucose intolerant had
    "pronounced compositional changes" in their microbiota. Those changes could
    have been in response to the artificial sweeteners, suggest the study

    We have an estimated 100 trillion bacteria in our intestines, and they
    help us digest our food. But they don't just help break down our food;
    emerging research like Elinav's links imbalances in gut bacteria to
    conditions like obesity, Type 1 diabetes, celiac disease and Crohn's
    disease, just to name a few.

    It could be that the key to managing or even preventing such illnesses is
    catering to that bacteria, and in the case of obesity and diabetes, that
    could mean avoiding artificial sweeteners.

    "Artificial sweeteners were extensively introduced into our diets with
    the intention of reducing caloric intake and normalizing blood glucose
    levels without compromising the human 'sweet tooth,'" write the study
    authors. "Our findings suggest that [artificial sweeteners] may have
    directly contributed to enhancing the exact epidemic that they themselves
    were intended to fight."

    Of course, this study doesn't mean that plunging headfirst into drinks
    with real sugar in them are any healthier -- the American Diabetes
    Association recommends avoiding sugary drinks like sweet tea, juice, soda
    and sports drinks altogether in order to prevent diabetes.

    May we suggest a piece of fruit to satisfy that sweet tooth?


  2. Yes you're very correct about the danger fruit juices ice teas, and such pose to us with diabetes. However you're also on the money about straight out fruit consumption.

    I'm chowing down on peaches, and melons as I post!

    Good to hear from you again Kyo...miss you!
