The Forces of Good vs. Evil
Transcript of The Forces of Good vs. Evil
Boulardii Enterococcus faecalis WHAT: Flat segmented worms that live in the intestines of animals
animals can become infected when grazing in pastures/drinking contaminated water
eating undercooked meat from infected animals
tapeworm eggs are passed with bowel movements
FUN FACT: Besides from sitting inside the intestines of dogs, cats,
and humans, they also live inside sharks. Studies have shown that these tapeworms had 278~455 times higher levels of the toxic
metals and lead inside their little bodies than the sharks did.
hunger or loss of appetite
vitamin and mineral deficiencies
blocking the intestine
damage the liver, eyes, heart, and brain Onchocerca Volvulus WHAT: A roundworm that causes onchocerciasis (a.k.a. river blindness)
World’s second leading infectious cause of blindness
HOW: Roundworms are transmitted through repeated bites by blackflies
skin disease (nodules under the skin; itching)
Adults can live up to 15 years, spreading throughout the body
When they die, they cause...
a strong immune system response that can destroy nearby tissue (such as the eye which causes the blindness) WHAT: Filariae are roundworms
HOW: Transmitted by mosquitoes, and cause Lymphatic Filariasis (a tropical disease)
The male and female worms together form “nests” in the human lymphatic system, and occupy lymphatic system, including the lymph nodes.
profoundly disfiguring disease
usually acquired in childhood
visible manifestations occur later in life
Can also lead to:
kidney damage WHAT:
can survive in harsh conditions like the acid and bile of the stomach/intestine
natural preservative in yogurt
associated with cavities and tooth decay
most widely studied probiotic
FUN FACT: May used to reduce anxiety. In one stuy, mice that were fed L. rhamnosus had less anxiety and had different levels of a brain-chemical sensor and stress hormone.
prevent rotavirus diarrhea
reduce the risk of respiratory tract infection in children
assist digestion in the intestinal tract
assist the immune system to combat pathogens
reduce the inflammatory response to dairy products in lactose-intolerant people who consume milk
decrease expression of allergy reactions in milk-hypersensitive subjects and increases antibody responses to harmful bacteria WHAT:
a tropical strain of yeast
extracted from lychee
maintains and restores the natural flora in the large and small intestine
controls/reduces the symptoms of many different kinds of diarrhea WHAT:
prevents the colonization of pathogenic bacteria
by: competing with the pathogens for binding sites and nutrients
makes the immune system better and more efficient
induces the production of low levels of antibodies
irritable bowel syndrome
help in the development of the flavor of the cheese
used as cheese starter cultures
preventing the spoilage of dairy products
inhibits the growth of a bacteria known as Propionibacterium acnes General Info General Info Relevance to Gulp "Parasites bore all over the place...some are equipped with a boring tooth, like a drill bit installed on the top of the head" (173).

90% of humans will have a problem with parasites in their lifetime
eat the host’s cells directly or drain the nutrients directly from the host’s tissues
secrete their fecal wastes throughout the host’s body
reproduce by depositing thousands of eggs, or by cell division
Most happen in warm climates (Southeast Asia or other tropic or sub-tropic parts of the world)
Easy to contract from food, water, animals, humans, and the air FUN FACT: The human body contains about 100 trillion cells, but only maybe one in 10 of those cells is actually — human. The rest are from bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms--up to five pounds of the tiny single-celled organisms.
Together, all of the bacteria in the body would be the size of a large liver.
Each of our bodies has its own unique microbiome
We give them a place to live, and they help keep us alive.
degrade toxic substances in the digestive tract
help regulate cholesterol and triglyceride uptake
help digest our food
teaches our immune systems how to recognize dangerous invaders
produces helpful anti-inflammatory compounds
creates chemicals that fight off other bugs that could make us sick Foods with Probiotics Images Cited Cheese and the Slow Carb Diet. Digital image. 4-HBtalk. N.p., 7 June 2011. Web.
