Wow--Something I never heard before
Anyhow, as reviewed by Laura Landro (WSJ, Nov 5, 2013), the book says something I had never heard before. And that is that women's intestines are twistier and longer than men's.
Men's innards, she said, are like a horseshoe, women's like a roller coaster. Women's are also longer, Chutkan says.
This explains a lot. All my life, I have had what I call "bad guts," always something!
She goes on to recommend fiber like psyllium and lots of water. But also advocates eliminating six categories--that spell SAD GAS. These are soy, artificial sweeteners, dairy, gluten, alcohol and sugar.
Now that sort of thing I had heard before.
But the women's guts are different than men's--that was new.
Have you heard it?
