A fermented-food diet reduces inflammation!

According to Stanford School of Medicine experts, a diet rich in fermented foods increases the variety of gut bacteria while lowering inflammatory molecular markers. 36 healthy individuals were randomly allocated to either a fermented or high-fiber diet over a 10-week period in a research study. The gut microbiota and the immune system were both affected differently by the two diets. Overall microbial diversity increased after eating foods including yogurt, kefir,…

The ‘smart’ shirt keeps an eye on the heartbeat!

Carbon nanotube thread sewn into sports clothing collected ECG and heart rate data that equaled conventional monitoring and outperformed chest-strap monitors.The shirts are machine washable and made of flexible fibers. If your comfortable shirt can monitor your heart better than uncomfortable smart watches or chest straps, there’s no reason to wear them. This is the concept of “smart clothing” created by a Rice University lab, which used conductive nanotube thread…
