Food for thought: How your belly controls your brain | Ruairi Robertson | TEDxFulbrightSantaMonica

    Dauer: 14:30

    "Have you ever had a gut feeling or butterflies in your stomach? Has hunger ever changed your mood? Our bellies and brains are physically and biochemically connected in a number of ways, meaning the state of our intestines can alter the way our brains work and behave, giving a whole new meaning to 'Food for thought'.

    As a nutritionist, microbiologist and neuroscientist, Ruairi Robertson is passionate about the link between our bellies and brains. His research is examining how our intestines and the microbes within them can influence both physical and mental health, and most importantly how our diets influence this relationship. Ruairi has travelled the world researching food, and believes it is the key to global public health. Ruairi is a PhD student in University College Cork in Ireland and current Fulbright Scholar (2015/16) to Harvard University.

Funny how we as naturopathic doctors have been talking about this for decades, we got it from traditional chinese medicine as well. So funny how now it becomes mainstream but I’m glad there is actual research to prove these points.

This is interesting but incomplete research.... The second brain was named as its a dense colloney of nerve cells which sometimes act independently from the brain... In fact what is hypothesised by the BSC group research is not about density of nerve cells but the nerve cells themselves... Each nerve cell are identified like a pc the nuclear processes carry out functional independent activity and are shaped by the chemical environment in the body... What this speaker is discribing with difficulty is the type of gut bacteria undertaking specific digestive functions actually liberate different nutrients.. In turn these nutrients determine small changes in chemical composition of the environment the nerve cells live. It is thought to make small changes in the nurve behaviour conducted to the brain either by reproduction or functional slowing .... So if you over colonise certain bacteria in the gut if does effect brain activity for dependence to acquire more of that nutrient or bacteria... This can lead to peoples addiction for eating the wrong foods... Perpetuating errant bacteria guy types

This is a very modern mix of clickbait, soundbites, propaganda, cherry-picked confirmation bias. I do agree with the central premise of 'gut has significant influence on behaviour and brain' - though wtf do I know anyway, to even have an opinion? - but I'd want a more nuanced, rigorous, 'complex/ambivalent' approach (note the use of 'more': just less certainty projected as religious dogma). Ted talks where speakers charmingly/self-effacingly/manipulatively project Truth looks a bit pseudo-science to me. That's a shame, Ruairi - I think you'd make a compelling case if you weren't so amazed with yourself at how you've charmed your audience... Sadly, Ted has become a place where speakers dispense narrow, 'unambiguous' Truths in chunks. Hey, Ted, how about some speakers who get on stage and tell about difficult, complex, unclear issues?

Almost every point/major sentence he says includes "might", "maybe", "could", "possibly", "almost"...... When he says the brain doesnt control the gut... cool, every other organ in the body can function without a brain. I don't disagree with the importance of bacteria, but a lot of his claims are simply not true or just sensational without point.

here's a few suggestions for stopping drinking at home Try eating food when you are drinking - this cuts down the amount you drink. Take a break from alcohol. Make a note of how much you drink, then you know if you are cutting down. Set yourself goals - don't make them too hard at first. Pick one or two days or each week when you will not drink at all. Next, try to stop drinking for one week each month. (I read these and the reasons they work on Adoette Drink Plan site )

Actually not only microbes in intestine, but the secretion power-absorption power, activity of intestine is also the base of physical and our mental health. It is said in Ayurveda and since thousands of years Ayurveda doctors are using this fact in the treatment of bodily and mental disorders.

I loved hearing this scientific explanation of the Biblical phrase, "bowels of compassion." It always sounded very odd to me, as a young Christian. Now, it makes perfect sense! Just like when it was declared in the book of Job that God hung the sphere of the Earth on nothing long before anyone had scientifically posited the possibility of the Earth being a sphere.
