    That looks like the worst table cloth I've ever seen.

    I tried the raw prawns once. I must admit to the most fantastic technicoloured yawn ever. The wife had this yesterday...


    I wouldn't touch this with yours.

    While she was eating this, she was boiling a pot of pigs stomach and intestines.

    I never saw her eat that, the dogs been quite today.

    I thought everybody stopped at the roadside vendor to pick up a couple of rice rats for their in-laws tea. Must just be me.

    I hope you all realize that a Thais stomach contains completly diffrent bacteria for digestion than a western stomach. This is why we have a dificult time digesting their food without having problems.

    The same holds true when Thais try to eat western food and is why so few want to eat it.

    Bon Apetit.

    My wife has no problem tucking into my sausage,chips ,eggs and beans and I love loads of chilli in my Noodle Soup

    I think what your are trying to says is when you travel to different parts of the world there are different types of viruses and bacteria that dont affect the local as they do us because they have become accustom to them

    I'm a lot more flatulent here in the West.

    I let rip two robust grunts just writing that sentence.

    And one during that one.

    No, what I am saying is our gut flora is way different than that of a Thai. It takes years for a stomach to be colonized by local bacteria and when one strays away from what the stomach is used to, it revolts. Hence the use of Imodium, Reglan and other drugs that assist a GI tract to cope.

    Traveling to other countries will stress your gut flora, but if you are lucky like your wife, you will have no problems trying foreign food in moderation. Take her to your home country and feed her a constant local diet without Thai food and see what happens.

    The Gutís Microbiome Changes Rapidly with Diet
    A new study, published Wednesday in Nature, indicates that these changes can happen incredibly fast in the human gutówithin three or four days of a big shift in what you eat

    She would probable get fat and end up with type 2 diabetes

    But yes sure she would miss Thai food .... but surly this has more to do with her personal palate than the inability of her gut flora to handle a western diet ?

    Not too sure about that boloa. I am not in total agreement with your quoted study. If I had time to analyze the data, I could probably find lots of false assumptions. But alas, those days are over for me and I rather analyze other things having nothing to do with health and wellness.

    I am sure your wife would have cravings for Thai food just like we have cravings for western food. She may also have a strong stomach for foreign food, but I assure you she will not digest western foods the same way you do for quite some time.

    There also seems to be a growing incidence in Thailand as well. Maybe it is all that nasty western fast food.

    Don't be so quick to single out only fast food....
    More than likely pins against a general Western diet [especially the Anglo-American circles], which contrary to much illusion, is not that overall healthy.

    My comment was tongue in cheek and fast food is probably a small contributer to diabetes in Thailand. Junk food also contributes and is chock full of sugar. It seems to be the norm for all kids getting out of school for the day to buy several snacks from vendors parked all along the school exits. This is not a healthy thing to do. My wife buys my son an ice cream every day after school. At some point I will need to step in and change that trend.

    No doubt the average Thai diet has changed dramatically over the past 10 years and predisposes the Thais to diabetes along with a host of other serious health conditions. Mai Pen Rai.

    Actually very tasty. Extremely tasty in fact. Probably has more taste than everything the average Westerner eats in a life-time combined.

    usually looks nicer than that though.


    Also a good excuse if you don't want to go to work - I had some gung chae nam pla last night. They'll understand.
