Sugar binges increase risks of IBD

I saw “Study: Sugar binges increase risk of inflammatory bowel disease” at https://medicalxpress.com/news/2019-11-sugar-binges-inflammatory-bowel-disease.html

Some highlights

mice had an increased susceptibility to chemically induced colitis and more severe symptoms after only two days of a high-sugar diet

 Eating high-sugar diets and decreasing intake of fibre feeds "bad" microbes, such as E. coli, that are associated with inflammation and a defective immune response.

so this idea that it's OK to eat well all week and indulge in junk food on the weekend is flawed

showed that just two days on the high-sugar diet and the absence of short-chain fatty acids caused an increase in gut permeability, opening interesting avenues of research on how diet may affect the bacteria in our gastrointestinal tract and brain health

study showed that gut permeability increased quite dramatically in the mice on the high-sugar diet—which means that bacterial products are free to move from the gut, where they normally stay, to the rest of the body
