TLDR The conclusions are: fecal short-chain fatty acids may help prevent cancer, fiber intake can reduce obesity, weight loss is hard for obese people, low BMI cancer patients are more prone to chemotherapy side effects, intermittent fasting benefits gut health, cherry laurel has health benefits in rats, certain gene variations can increase stress in hair loss patients, fecal acids can affect blood sugar levels, cold agglutinin can affect blood test results in autoimmune patients, and people with Crohn's disease have higher levels of a certain chemical in their blood.
The document presents multiple studies on various health topics. One study found a correlation between fecal short-chain fatty acids and serum tumor markers in 30 patients, suggesting potential cancer prevention strategies. Another study of 341 adults showed a negative correlation between fiber intake and BMI, waist circumference, and waist/height ratio. A third study found that more than half of obese patients couldn't achieve targeted weight loss, with those having higher BMI and higher loss of lean tissue experiencing most difficulties. A fourth study found that low BMI breast cancer patients receiving chemotherapy were more prone to toxicities. A fifth study showed that intermittent fasting has a protective role in the structure of the gut microbiota. A sixth study showed that cherry laurel has antioxidant, antidiabetic, and neuroprotective effects in rats. A study on 43 male patients with androgenic alopecia found that GST gene polymorphism may be associated with increased total oxidative stress and decreased total antioxidant capacity. Another study found a significant positive correlation between fecal acetic acid and propionic acid levels and serum glucose values. A study on patients with autoimmune disease found that the presence of cold agglutinin can cause inconsistencies in erythrocyte indices in complete blood count results. A study involving 39 individuals with Crohn's disease found that serum Trimethylamine-N-Oxide (TMAO) levels were significantly higher in these individuals compared to the control group.View this study on degruyter.com →
