YOGURT TO MAKE YOU CHEERFUL



Lactobacillus is found in Yogurt.

Lactobacillus may make you more cheerful and optimistic.

Lactobacillus may also be good for treating irritable bowel syndrome and for helping prevent some cancers and certain other health problems.

Lactobaccilus is a good bacteria (a probiotic) and may improve your behaviour (The Economist)

Research published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, suggests that lactobaccilus "can affect the brain" and improve "an individual’s mood and behaviour."

Mice were fed Lactobacillus.

They appeared to become "more confident and less anxious than those not fed Lactobacillus".

We note the following comments:

1. "Homeopaths have been aware of the effect of the bowel flora on the health for almost a hundred years."

Aangirfan is a fan of Homeopathic medicine.

2. "It all depends on the quality.

"Natural or poisoned.

"From sick cows fed medicine, GMO-food, lead, mercury, nanotech particles from chemtrails and radioactive fallout

"Or from unvaccinated naturally selected goats feeding on flowers grass and bushes outdoors.

"Milk homogenised, infected and heated and packed in plastics with chemical softeners or hardeners etc

"Or fresh and natural directly from one healthy happy animal."

Aangirfan agrees that you have to be careful which yogurt you buy.

Natural or poisoned.
From sick cows fed medicine, GMO-food, lead, mercury, nanotech particles from chemtrails and radioactive fallout
or from unvaccinated naturally selected goats feeding on flowers grass and bushes outdoors,
the milk homogenised, infected and heated and packed in plastics with chemical softeners or hardeners etc or fresh and natural directly from one healthy happy animal.
In these times of systematic poisoning for profit by big Agri-Pharma,
personally know the source of your food.

Really Aangirfan, do I have to eat yoghurt to be cheerful? Isn't it the live yoghurt which is probiotic?

Anyway I'll give it a go. Being cheerier should make it worthwhile.

One of the comments on the Economist article about lactobacillus and mood is interesting:

"This idea is not new at all. Homeopaths have been aware of the effect of the bowel flora on the health for almost a hundred years. This was first highlighted by John Paterson in the early 1900s.
It is heartening to note that what was published by a homeopath in the early 20th century is being confirmed by modern day researchers.
I would urge your readers to check out a related blog:

This is not as much an endorsement of homeopathy as it is of the power of statistical inference.

Traditional medicines are often efficacious because of careful observation by intelligent practitioners over generations and millenia even. The explanations of the underlying mechanisms may be pure voodoo but the medicines themselves have often proved themselves useful.

This is why pharma companies have been falling over themselves to investigate traditional healing, scientifically isolate the biological mechanisms at work, and patent the hell out of them.

Oh, and they also lobby to have traditional medicines declared ineffective and illegal even as they market the selfsame synthesized equivalents for a high price, profits being protected by the WIPO and intellectual property treaties.

Brilliant!

Yogurt is a wonderful food. Personally I prefer the thick Balkan variety with about everything you can imagine.

My daughter refers to the sugary fruity ones as "melted ice cream full of crap" and she is quite right. We tend to go for the natural or organic variety of course.

My idea of bliss is a bowl of berries (strawberries or blueberries), a banana, and Balkan yogurt. Toss on a handful of cereal grains or granola and it is a major meal.

Is Lactobacillus in marijuana?

John Friend,

Is Lactobacillus in marijuana?

It must be - because it makes me cheerful.

John Friend said...

Hey su!! LMAO!!! I think you're right!!!

I strictly eat local produce, fruits and meat sources. Well, we get a lot of our produce, fruit and meat from Mexico in San Diego (which is still technically local, I guess), but it's certainly better than going to Walmart or any of these other large corporate food chains.
