3 days ago · Probiotics: Mayo Clinic Radio Health Minute

A human’s digestive tract teems with trillions of bacteria. There are more bacteria in your intestines than cells in your body. But not all of the bacteria in your body are good for you. Research suggests that having too many of the bad and not enough of the good bacteria — caused, in part, by an unhealthy diet — can wreak havoc on your body’s systems. Probiotics are good bacteria that could help promote a healthy gut and a strong immune system.

In this  Mayo Clinic Radio Health Minute,  Dr. Joseph Murray, a gastroenterologist at Mayo Clinic, will help explain probiotics and how they work.

6 days ago · Pancreatic cancer / healthy new year / sleep crisis: Mayo Clinic Radio

According to the National Cancer Institute, about 53,000 patients in the U.S. were diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2016. The pancreas is an organ that lies behind the lower part of your stomach. It secretes enzymes to aid digestion and hormones to manage your blood sugar.

Pancreatic cancer is one of the deadliest cancers, as it typically spreads rapidly to nearby organs, and it is seldom detected in its early stages. Historically, the five-year survival rate for pancreatic cancer is only about 7 percent, but new treatment options are improving those numbers.

On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, Dr. Mark Truty, a general surgeon at Mayo Clinic, will discuss pancreatic cancer and explain the new treatment protocol that is offering hope. Also on the program, Dani Johnson, a physical therapist at the Mayo Clinic Healthy Living Program, will have tips to get you moving in the new year. And, Dr. Anne Wheaton, an epidemiologist and sleep program lead in the Division of Population Health at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, joins the program to discuss why Americans aren’t getting enough sleep.
