Probiotics are not harmless.

The media wrongly portrays probiotics as harmless. I feel like I have to show the other side of the coin sometimes, probiotics have been associated with sepsis and bacteremia.

These risks exist and should be on the packaging of all those products, the probiotics industry is completely unregulated because they take advantage of the fact they can classify them as a food substance or supplement in many countries and are able to bypass the scruteny medication has to go through.







The studies that show probiotics are ineffective or worse than placebo, you will never see mentioned by the media.
