At the end of the article, I consider how to reflect this study against broad dietary choices we make, and I also link to a recent radio show where I answer audience questions about health and weight control with Robb Wolf and Stephan Guyenet, PhD.

Leaky gut—intestinal hyperpermeability - Don't feed the beast—running from inflammation

Intestinal yeast overgrowth, over-use of antibiotics, deficiency in digestive enzymes, overuse of NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) and antacids, high sugar and refined flour diets can compromise the intestinal wall enough that it is unable to keep out large molecules (bacteria, fungi, parasites and their toxins, undigested protein, fat and waste) not normally absorbed into the bloodstream.
