The bacteria in your gut may offer clues as to whether you’re likely to have a heart attack. A recent study published in a biology journal (FASEB Journal, published by the Federal of American Societies for Experimental Biology) reported that the “types and levels” of gut bacteria are a good indication of the likelihood of a heart attack. The research was done by scientists at the Medical College of Wisconsin (Milwaukee, Wis.) also said that changing the bacteria could reduce risk.
In fact, rat studies found that those given specific probiotics (Lactobacillus plantarum) had smaller heart attacks and better return of mechnical function afterwards.
