In Food Technology, we watched a video about how gut bacteria affects our overall health. Eating food that isn’t clean can give us bad gut bacteria and bad gut bacteria can lead to diseases such as asthma and diabetes. Eating clean food will give us good gut bacteria which does the opposite of the bad bacteria, helping us to stay away from diseases and stay healthy.
Studies have shown that eating a diet that is higher in fiber makes it easier to breathe, which is evidence that what we eat can give us such diseases as asthma. What we eat can also affect the amount of time that we live and eating high fiber meals helps us to live longer.
Overall, scientists are urging us to change the way we eat, to eat healthier and to eat meals higher in fiber to take care of ourselves properly.
