Washington Post investigates Probiotics

Sally Squires, a Washington Post Health & Nutrition columnist, published an investigation of probiotics today.

It's a relatively well balanced piece citing reputable sources.....what a rarity!

Sally discusses the growing widespread use of probiotics, their exact undetermined definition, unknown side effects, dosage uncertainty and clear health benefits. It's a worthy read for anyone needing to be knowledgeable of what the popular press is publishing about the nutrition industry.
