  Gastrointestinal tract - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
The gastrointestinal tract or digestive tract, also referred to as the GI tract or the alimentary canal or the gut, is the system of organs within multicellular animals which takes in food, digests it to extract energy and nutrients, and expels the remaining waste.
Sheep gut was the original source for natural gut string used in racquets, such as for tennis.
Gut cord has also been used to produce strings for the snares which provide the snare drum's characteristic buzzing timbre, although the snare drum almost always uses metal wire for this purpose in the modern era, the North African bendir frame drum still uses gut for this purpose.

 Grand unification theory - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
GUT theory specifically predicts relations among the fermion masses, such as between the electron and the down quark, the muon and the strange quark, and the tau lepton and the bottom quark for SU(5) and SO(10).
GUT models generically predict the existence of topological defects such as monopoles, cosmic strings, domain walls, and others.
Some GUT theories like SU(5) and SO(10) suffer from what is called the doublet-triplet problem in that these theories predict that for each electroweak Higgs doublet, there corresponds a colored Higgs triplet field with a very small mass (small, meaning many orders of magnitude smaller than the GUT scale here).

 Fly Fishing History: Silkworm Gut
Gut wasn't a perfect material and it had many drawbacks; as I have already mentioned, it required soaking, but it also had a tendency to rot, and its lack of longitudinal stiffness meant that a gut dropper was much more likely to spin around the cast than its horsehair counterpart.
On the other hand, gut did allow the presentation of the fly on a nearly transparent point, was resistant to damage, and didn't share the tendency of horsehair casts to 'pink' - that is to spring slack loops of hair out of the side of a twisted cast.
When gut first began to be drawn, by sharpening the end of the strand, and pulling it through the bored centre of a jewel, the manufacturers cast around for a common measurement system, and settled on the watchmakers' favourite.

 Foundation for Integrated Medicine - Leaky Gut Syndromes
Leaky Gut Syndromes are usually provoked by exposure to substances which damage the integrity of the intestinal mucosa, disrupting the desmosomes which bind epithelial cells and increasing passive, para-cellular absorption.
Immune sensitization to the normal gut flora is an important form of dysbiosis that has been implicated in the pathogenesis of Crohn's disease and ankylosing spondylitis[67-81].
Altering gut flora through the use of antibiotics, synthetic and natural, probiotics, and diet is a third strategy for breaking the vicious cycle in Leaky Gut Syndromes.

 Gut Check
Sometimes we may think that our gut is not serving us very well so we try to ignore it, but this is really just our gut telling us to ignore that thing we have been thinking is our gut.
Thus their guts led them to the premise that their new government was to have no more power than required to adequately serve the function intended of it.
The gut no longer has a use for that when its owners are merely supposed to believe and even repeat just what they are told.

 Enzymes & Leaky Gut/Intestinal Permeability
Leaky gut syndrome is a term used when the intestines become damaged, more openings develop in the gut wall, and the wall becomes more ‘porous’ to the extent that some of the contents passing through the intestines are allowed to get into the bloodstream when they should be kept out.
Since the gut is the main source of endotoxin, we sought to determine whether an increase in intestinal permeability (leaky gut) is required for alcohol-induced endotoxemia and liver injury and whether the gut leakiness is preventable.
Since preventing the gut leakiness by oats also prevented the endotoxemia and ameliorated liver damage in rat, our results suggest that alcohol-induced gut leakiness 1) may cause alcohol-induced endotoxemia and liver injury and 2) may be the critical cofactor in the 30% of alcoholics who develop ALD.

 Leaky Gut Syndrome
The gut becomes leaky in the sense that bacteria, fungi, parasites and their toxins, undigested protein, fat and waste normally not absorbed into the bloodstream in the healthy state, pass through a damaged, hyperpermeable, porous or "leaky" gut..
The leaky gut syndrome is almost always associated with autoimmune disease and reversing autoimmune disease depends on healing the lining of the gastrointestinal tract.
Leaky gut syndrome also creates a long list of mineral deficiencies because the various carrier proteins present in the gastrointestinal tract that are need to transport minerals to the blood are damaged by the inflammation process.

 GUT
The gut is a major primary interface between the individual and the environment.
Increased gut permeability can cause absorption of potentially toxic dietary substances and products of incomplete digestion, which are regarded by the body as foreign substances requiring 'attack' when in fact with adequate digestion and normal permeability they would not compromise optimum function.
Gut permeability measured by polyethylene glycol absorption in abnormal gut fermentation as compared with food intolerance.

 What is Leaky Gut Syndrome?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
The purpose of the gastro-intestinal tract, or gut, is multi-fold.
When the gut is inflamed the carrier proteins are damaged so nutrient deficiencies occur which can also cause any symptom, like magnesium deficiency induced muscle spasm or copper deficiency induced high cholesterol.
Continuing, it is suggested that the eradication of the normal gut flora when antibiotics are administered repeatedly during infancy may cause the CD5+ cells to reject normal cells and award immune tolerance to species that potentially could cause harm.

 Bush's Gut   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
The prosecutor may have a “gut feeling” that the defendant is guilty, but that won’t suffice either in his opening statement or his closing argument.
Thus the “gut feeling” of the experienced physician is to be preferred to that of the medical student.
This is what is especially scary about George Bush: he lacks that fund of experience and knowledge that enhances the value of the “gut feeling.” Bush doesn’t read, he doesn’t tolerate dissenting views much less critical analysis of his instincts, he has no curiosity whatever about alternative theories or avenues of investigation.

 Second Brain in the Stomach   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
The gut's brain, known as the enteric nervous system, is located in sheaths of tissue lining the oesophagus, stomach, small intestine and colon.
Untill relatively recently, people thought that the gut's muscles and sensory nerves were vyired directly to the brain and that the brain controlled the gut through two pathways that increased or decreased rates of activity.
By inflaming the gut, the brain is priming the gut for surveillance.

 Leaky Gut Syndrome
Another problem a leaky gut creates is a mineral deficiency because the damage that happens to the carrier proteins which are needed for transport of specific minerals are damaged by the inflammatory processes.
All this activity means the gut uses more blood when it is resting than any other organ but it is also the first to lose its blood supply when in a fight or flight situation, which is what stress is.
Antibiotic use-this causes an overgrowth of fungi (yeast) in the gut due to the immune suppression that occurs.

 Brainstorms August 2001/Gut Feelings About Irritable Bowel Syndrome   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
This link is not surprising given that the enteric nervous system, which innervates the gut, is embryologically derived from the same part of the neural crest that evolves into the brain.
The specific 5-HT receptor subtypes in the gut are 5-HT receptors, located on vagal afferent neurons that mediate visceral sensations and GI reflexes, and 5-HT receptors, probably located on presynaptic cholinergic and motor neurons to influence bowel motility.
Gut feelings are literally relayed to the brain; the brain then responds with feedback to the gut.

 Gut Feelings
It is important to clarify at the outset that I use the term "gut feeling" to refer to a sense of intuition that one does not feel he thought about and is unable to rationally account for.
For Pert, the distribution of peptide receptors throughout the body is of critical importance, and she challenges the long-held assumption in traditional neuroscience that emotions are an entirely brain-based phenomenon.
She argues that the entire lining of the gastrointestinal tract, from the esophagus to the large intestine is lined with cells that contain neuropeptides and receptors.

 Altered Immunity & Leaky Gut Syndrome   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
The abnormally large spaces present between the cells of the gut wall allow the entry of toxic material into the bloodstream that would, in healthier circumstances, be repelled and eliminated.
Due to the enlarged spaces between the cells of the gut wall, larger than usual protein molecules are absorbed before they have a chance to be completely broken down as occurs when the intestinal lining is intact.
Leaky gut syndrome also creates a long list of mineral deficiencies because the various carrier proteins present in the gastrointestinal tract that are needed to transport minerals from the intestine to the blood are damaged by the inflammation process.

 GUT drive   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
The GUT drive works with the forces of creation phsyics itself, converting matter into energy without the corresponding need or expense of an equal quality of anti-matter.
The GUT drive achieves an isp (specific impulse) of some 30 million, equal to the best pion-antipion annihilation antimatter drives.
Firstly, as with the anti-matter drive the unmodified GUT engine produces a huge exhaust flare of subatomic particles travelling at relativistic speed, and deadly to anything in its path.
