In The News
Research from the University of California has found that a leaky gut in the fruit fly can dramatically reduce the lifespan of the fly. Researchers used the fruit fly because their
lifespan was relatively short and they could evaluate and manipulate the fly’s microbiome relatively easily.
What they found in the fruit fly was that within days before death, the intestinal tract of the fly began leaking. When the researchers administered antibiotics to kill the bacteria in the gut, the lifespan dramatically increased and the leaking was delayed.
Scientists believe that by maintaining a healthy balance of bacteria in our own gut, you can dramatically affect your potential for developing disease and increase your life.
