Probiotics are not a miracle drug

A recent (very small) study observed some of the perils of taking too many probiotics:

"Probiotic use can result in a significant accumulation of bacteria in the small intestine that can result in disorienting brain fogginess as well as rapid, significant belly bloating."

My takeaway: Be careful about taking dietary supplements just because they're marketed as healthy.
