The probiotics market is already a billion dollar industry, so when news comes in saying that those products that contain it actually are useless to healthy individuals, that right there is certainly a big issue.
Are you familiar with the term, how about yogurt, yogurt drinks, tablets and biscuits? Well, if you love all of them because they seem to make you healthier, you ought to know that they reportedly don't contain anything that makes you healthy.
According to a report from The Guardian, probiotics indeed help in digesting food, but they don't really give anything unique to healthy adults. A team of experts from the University of Copenhagen performed seven trials of products containing probiotics and figured out that there was evidence whatsoever on any positive effect on gut or stomach health for people ages 19 to 88. more >>

Both teams have another game to play after their clash so with only a slim lead, Manchester can ensure the lead over West Ham by winning. The Hammers on the other hand can cut the deficit to one if they beat the Red Devils. more >>
Roman Catholic nuns are warning that the security of "first-world entitlements" is getting in the way of the women's commitment to fight poverty and environmental destruction.
U.S. St. Joseph Sr. Carol Zinn addressed 900 women representing nearly 500,000 sisters globally at the International Union of Superiors General gathering, cautioning them against accepting the "entitlement creep" of the first-world, the Global Sisters Report said.
Zinn noted that some of the major benefits of living in the first-world include opportunities for higher education and job and housing security, but warned that they "can create a numbness of consciences and a blindness of heart through which we can easily see not the pain, but see what we want to see." more >>
As feisty and firm as he appears to be, it looks like Donald Trump does believe in giving an exception to a certain rule that's dragging controversy in all facets of politics. After the recently unrivaled Republican presidential candidate announced his desire to impose a temporary ban on Muslims entering the U.S., he followed it up by suggesting that London's new mayor, who happens to be a Muslim himself, should be exempted to that policy.
But Mayor Sadiq Khan does not in any way take it as a compliment. Speaking to the media in London on Saturday, the newly-elected mayor of the British capital instead said that Trump is nothing but an "ignorant" interpretation on religion of Islam. The New York Times first reported of Trump's controversial statement, adding that the billionaire and real estate mogul is actually elated to learn that Khan, who is of Pakistani origin, won the London election.
Reuters said that Trump thought of the idea of banning Muslims entering the United States right after a series of attacks in California and Paris left many people dead. He seems to be envisioning a safer America by way of preventing possible radicalized Muslims entering and integrating into society. However, his proposal was met with extreme criticism and opposition, most notably from human rights organizations, Muslim advocates, his Democratic rivals, and even his fellow Republicans, saying that his proposal was not only contentious but is also very opposite to the values of the American people. more >>
