Monday. Here is something you probably haven’t heard before–gut health isimportant. Ok, so maybe you have heard that before, but do you reallyunderstand why? Why is our gut such an instrumental piece of overall health?What is really going on in there? The short answer is–we still don’t reallyknow, but let’s dive in anyway.
Four Pounds of Bacteria, Archaea, Fungi and Viruses
That is what makes up your gut microbiome. I had no idea what archaea were, soI looked it up. Like bacteria, archaea are single-celled organisms. Thedifference is that bacteria have a cell all made of peptidoglycan, whilearchaea do not. Now that you have that random fact tucked away for your nexttrivia night, let’s move on. According to James Kinross, a microbiomescientist and surgeon at Imperial College London quoted in thisarticle,”The gut microbiome is the most important scientific discovery for humanhealthcare in recent decades.” Bold statement, James. Let’s see you back itup. We discovered the gut microbiome just a few decades ago, in the age ofgenetic sequencing, and since then we’ve learned a lot. Studies suggesthaving a diverse population of gut microbes is associated with betterhealth. Theproblem is that as human populations urbanise, microbial diversity declines.It’s not entirely clear if the cause is our diet, cleanliness in our homes, orthe use of antibiotics, but over the past three generations, microbiomediversity has taken a major hit. Why does this matter? Well, there is evidenceto suggest that poor gut health is an underlying factor in many chronicconditions–asthma, food allergies, atopic diseases and auto-immune disorders.And that seems to be just the tip of the iceberg. The final frontier for gutmicrobiome exploration is its relationship with our brains. We already knowthe gut has its own nervoussystem. Someresearch has even started to study the impact of particular bacteria on sleepand how certain types of fiber can improve complex cognitive processes. Thesolution? Eating colorful, seasonal fruits and vegetables, organ meats, andavoiding processed foods is a good start. Managing stress and petting a pupcan also help. Seriously, dogs are great ways to build a healthy microbiome.As an added bonus, they are also cute and cuddly.

Ok, so regardless of what they have on the menu, frequenting your local PandaExpress probably isn’t the healthiest diet. With that being said, PandaExpress will now serve Beyond Meat orange chicken at selectrestaurants.In case you needed a reminder, Beyond Meat is a meat alternative brand toutingtheir fake meat as a fake solution to our very real health and environmentalproblems. So now, instead of just having a meat alternative made up of GMOsoy, imported pea protein, and high PUFA industrial seed oils, Panda Expresswill serve that same concoction but covered in their iconic orange sauce.Spoiler alert– the first ingredient in Panda Express orange sauce is sugar.Nothing like a little sugar to help fake meat really pack a punch. Fake meatsucks. Sugar makes food tasty, but also sucks. Maybe skip Panda Expressaltogether, but if you do wake up and somehow find yourself at a Panda Expressagainst your will, skip the fake meat covered in sugar.
