    Really not a scam but not as glum as the video makes it sound. Candida is a umbrella term for a few strains of intestinal critters that when they are in balance with others are necessary for life. You can't eradicate all the Candida and function. Fairly simple to get in balance, eat Paleo\Primal, get enough rest, take a good Probiotic and only take an anti-biotic if absolutely necessary. I read that carb flu after starting eating Paleo\Primal could be pinned not only in changes in brain chemistry but a massive die off in strains of Candida in the gut and the subsequent toxins as they are digested in the stomach and large intestine. Makes sense to me.

    I do buy 100% percent that Big Agra has its dirty mitts in everything, they control the messaging in the media, the government by its colossal lobby effort especially in Midwest states like Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Missouri, Kansas and Indiana. They designed the food pyramid and they keep feeding us their addicting poisons(sugar, grains, trans fats, sugar substitutes)

    There is always a kernel of truth in everything we encounter. I've watched the video. It isn't nonsense...though it may be a little dramatized.

    Is there even any proof "beneficial bacteria"(probiotics) survives in the gut?

    This seems to say otherwise, at least in the case of yogurt and these "strains":

    Scarce Evidence of Yogurt Lactic Acid Bacteria in Human Feces after Daily Yogurt Consumption by Healthy Volunteers

    Probiotics, and its common alternative health buzz "detox", "candida", "toxins", etc seems to set off a particular quackery tone to me every single time.
    Time is passing so quickly. Right now, I feel like complaining to Einstein. Whether time is slow or fast depends on perception. Relativity theory is so romantic. And so sad.

    Okay, the video was super over-dramatic, but Candida is a potential issue people should be aware of and it is real. I don't see what is "nonsense" about it.

    I had wondered how these things are supposed to survive our stomach acid.

    E-coli and salmonella seem to, though.

    Some are more acid-resistant than others. I've never even heard of the strains they used in that study. More common probiotic strains are L. acidophilus, L. rhamnosus, B. bifidum, and B. longum. Not to mention if bacteria didn't survive digestion, we wouldn't have so much of it in our colon.

    There's a lot of fake science and hype around intestinal permeability and endotoxemia from various health and wellness communities (like the all-encompassing "candida"), but it's legitimate science.
