Side effects: Probiotics are considered safe overall for healthy people; short-term side effects may include mild gas and bloating. But keep in mind that if they do have physiological effects, these may not always be good effects. Some may, at least in theory, overstimulate the immune system or adversely affect metabolic pathways such as carbohydrate metabolism. If you are immune-compromised, have certain bowel problems or are seriously ill in other ways, avoid probiotics unless your doctor has okayed their use. Probiotics should be used cautiously by pregnant women, infants and young children and never given to premature infants. Bottom line: Probiotics are a promising field of research and may one day be used to treat or help prevent many disorders. But there’s not enough solid evidence to recommend their widespread use. Vague claims that probiotics "support good digestive health" are meaningless. Larger, longer and better studies are needed to test specific strains for specific conditions and to determine the proper doses and regimens. Probiotics and Antibiotics Probiotics and Antibiotics If you are taking antibiotics, there's no harm in eating yogurt to try to prevent diarrhea. But it's important to check with your health care provider or pharmacist first.
I liked your website a lot. Really appreciate your work on that. I m doing my batchelor’s in environmental engg, in India. Being interested in energy technology, I would like to ask some experienced person like u on wind energy..
1.) There are huge offshore wind energy projects upcoming in Europe. Can these completely replace fossil fuels in future if costs go down..?
2.) How can we distribute electricity to some very interior nations like Mongolia which has no ocean access..? Or where wing speeds are not very significant..? Are there any international policies for that..?
3) Wave energy, as I found in many articles is much more reliable and predictable compared to wind and solar, if costs go down (ofcourse it will take time), would’s it be a better alternative..?
