Dirty Pigs

Dirty pigs rule

Pigs make good medical comparisons to humans in part because they have similar size organs and similar bacteria in their gut. In this study piglets were divided into three groups; one that lived outside getting as dirty as they liked, one that lived indoors and a third group that lived isolated and being fed antibiotics. In the pigs that got down and dirty the bacteria in their gut were 90 per cent of the healthy phylum Firmicutes (most of these being of the Lactobacillus type). Among the pigs living indoors these healthy bacteria made up less than 70 per cent and among the isolated pigs just over 50 per cent of the gut bacteria. The isolated pigs also had more inflammation and made more cholesterol. The dirty pigs meanwhile, had a healthier immune system. So next time someone calls you a “dirty pig!”, just say “thankyou”, they may be remarking on how healthy you are.Meanwhile if you visit Meijer Ad that contains mostly likewise discounts with Winn Dixie Ad you surely have a range like ALDI Ad.
