How do you know it's more? What happens to it if you don't eat at all for two days?quote:and it seems to cause more gas.

That leaves 2 H2 unaccounted for. I would think the equation is 2CO2 + 4H2 = 2CH4 + 202. The O2 are probably consumed by other bacteria.quote:they use 4 H2 molecules and 1 carbon dioxide molecule for one methane molecule.
Only 1/3 the population.quote:Not everyone has methane producers though.
That is in very small amounts, though.Most bacteria that consume H2 don�t produce any gas. They mainly make vinegar.quote:another type of bacteria uses H2 to produce hydrogen sulfide
None of the above. They make most short-chain fatty acids, such as lactic acid or related stuff like vinegar.quote:I don't know what probiotic bacteria are? H2 producers? methane producers?
Initial experiments with FOS had confirmed this, although whether it�s happening here we don�t know.quote:I still think the extra gas maybe coming from the FOS added to probiotic formulas.

Quite the opposite. The colon requires it for nutrition. Enemas of these things have use to treat ulcerative colitis, although the results have been mixed.[quote:Would vinegar or short chain fatty acids be irritating to an Irritable Colon
H2 is harmless to the gut. However, hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is toxic to colon and may be a factor in causing ulcerative colitis.quote:More than H2 gas?
I don�t think we know the answer to that, but Lactobacillus GG has sucessfully treated antibiotic associated colitis.quote:would one type of bacteria or less bacteria reduce symptoms?
Their method has never been verified so we don�t know if the result is trustworthy. I don�t believe it.quote:I know at one time researchers tested IBS verus Normal people in a gas collecting tents and found some differences.
They still seem to be getting near perfect data supporting their claims. (I think they keep using the same set of patients )quote:What ever happened to the cedars sinai bacteria Overgrowth research?
