Well, apparently, it wasn’t just me who blew a fuse at that “probiotics cause SIBO and brain fog” paper last week! I had a serious belly laugh this morning reading an article in a nutraceuticals newsletter[i], which quoted doctors from around the world who are foaming at the mouth over it. The International Probiotics Association (which is a non-profit international organization made up of industry and academia experts) released an official “scathing” statement, which was “…echoed by other prominent researchers and stakeholders in the probiotic field.”
Two great points I missed (Ok…I am human!):
Points I did NOT miss (she typed, giving herself a high five):
And finally, my personal favorite quote: says Dr. Dan Fabricant, the president and CEO of the Natural Products Association (a non-profit devoted to maintaining the rights of consumers to choose, when it comes to natural products):
“To call this science is insulting to the thousands of scientific studies out there confirming the safe and effective use of probiotics….to say that they are making people confused or disoriented based on this laughable study is absurd.”
Whoa Nelly! Someone is pissed. And for once, it’s not just me!
