the latest research??? Apparently, they "have found" that chocolate cravings are due to the presence or absence of certain "germs" in the digestive system. They are hoping this could lead to a cure for obesity.
First of all....lots of quotes in my note because this so called study had so few participants I could never consider it of any importance.
Second...Someone study if the same "missing germs" are also missing in CD patients since most of us can not tolerate chocolate
Third...why would you want to mess with your digestive "germs" to cure obesity if it is a possible cause of such hideous things likeCD? Eat less and exercise!
Not trying to stir up controversy here. I am just so frustrated with all the money spent on useless studies. Then these studies make the news because we have a billion news stations running 24 hours a day so they have to make up news (don't get me started about the news station that has a show with all of it's "viewers" news). OK my rant is done....just couldn't take hearing this "news" 5 times in 2 hours.
Dx'd '90 (emergency rupture), symptoms ignored long before that, '03 fistulas and bad flagyl reactions, B12 weekly, Pentasa [until I surrender to the bigger meds]
I'm riding on the escalator of life....
