    Default Scientists Discover Nutrient That Helps Prevent Bacterial Infection ts

    Taurine, which helps the body digest fats and oils, could offer treatment benefit

    Scientists studying the body's natural defenses against bacterial infection have identified a nutrient -- taurine -- that helps the gut recall prior infections and kill invading bacteria, such as Klebsiella pneumoniae (Kpn). The finding, published in the journal Cell by scientists from five institutes of the National Institutes of Health, could aid efforts seeking alternatives to antibiotics.

    Scientists know that microbiota -- the trillions of beneficial microbes living harmoniously inside our gut -- can protect people from bacterial infections, but little is known about how they provide protection. Scientists are studying the microbiota with an eye to finding or enhancing natural treatments to replace antibiotics, which harm microbiota and become less effective as bacteria develop drug resistance.

    Good thing mussels is rich in Taurine. I have weak tolerance with dairy products so I can't have it. Both are rich in Taurine, btw.

    I find it interesting that when looking up sources of taurine, the gov't bias kicks in. Gov't and standard medical sources mention dairy, shellfish, and chicken. Less biased sources mention beef as well. But, of course, beef doesn’t fit the new narrative.

    Too true, Katee! As well, little distinction usually is made among the following: fresh pasture raised beef, CAFO beef raised on a diet which is indigestible for the cattle, and processed meats such as hot dogs. Big difference among all of these types in the way the human body handles each one, but they all are grouped together as "red meat". The devil is in the details, and in this case those details do make a huge difference.
