Maintain Gut Health With Prebiotics | Image: Julien Haler/Flickr
Simply put, health starts in the gut. Keeping your good and bad bacteria in balance is essential to maintaining gut health. Think of prebiotics as the fertilizer that enables your gut garden to thrive.
Prebiotic foods – primarily indigestible plant fibers – nourish the good bacteria already living in the gut (aka the ‘resident’ bacteria) and encourage their growth.

Humanitarian Aid - Aftermath Hurricane Maria in Dominica | Image courtesy: DFID UK
Hurricane Maria: This is the fifth time on record that Dominica has taken a direct hit from a hurricane, but never has it faced a storm of such ferocity and strength. The hurricane brought life in Dominica to a standstill.
The storm caused widespread damage and destruction in Dominica, one of the poorest countries in the Eastern Caribbean. On 25 September, the UN estimated that the entire population suffered direct damage to housing and livelihoods.

U.S. Virgin Islands: The humanitarian mission provided the islands with an FAA mobile air traffic control tower with an instrument landing system and FAA air traffic controllers. Additionally, the mission delivered 13,000 pounds of food and water.
“This mission is providing humanitarian support to areas in the Virgin Islands affected by multiple hurricanes,” said U.S. Air Force Senior Airman Mark Darnell, 14th AS loadmaster. “Missions like this one are what I signed up for. Its an incredible feeling to bring relief to people in need.”
According to a humanitarian update issued by the office, as of 11:00 AM local time, 14 August, at least 66 people – including children – have been killed, 35 are missing, and many have been displaced following large-scale flooding and landslides in the wake of the worst rains to strike Nepal in 15 years.
The disaster comes at a time when the landlocked Asian nation was struggling to recover from the 2015 earthquakes. Some five of the 27 affected districts are also earthquake-affected, while four of them were hit by floods a year prior, the update mentioned.

The supply of metals in the top producing nation has already been affected this year by the closure of unapproved or outdated plants, and as the government ratchets up its safety and environmental oversight. In advance of the production curbs over the most-polluting months of November to March, the nation’s biggest steel hub, Tangshan city, on Monday shuttered half its iron ore processing plants as an emergency measure to avoid dangerous pollution levels. The order comes ahead of a high-profile political gathering in nearby Beijing in October.
The policy risks include disruptions to steel demand as well as supply. On Tuesday, Zhengzhou, the capital of Henan province, said it’ll suspend construction of buildings, roads and water facilities during the winter to fight pollution. The city also confirmed it would follow government orders applying to 28 conurbations in northern China and cut steel capacity by half and aluminum and alumina capacity by around a third over the period.
