New Genomic Research- We Are Not Entirely Human

I found this article amazing. The more I learn about our relationship with bacteria, the more I am intrigued.

A quote:
"Bacteria are so important to key functions such as digestion and the immune system that we may be truly symbiotic organisms -- relying on one another for life itself, the scientists write in Friday's issue of the journal Science."

And:
"We're entirely dependent on this microbial population for our well-being. A shift within this population, often leading to the absence or presence of beneficial microbes, can trigger defects in metabolism and development of diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease."

You have to read this. And you MUST use Theralac pro/pre-biotic

Happy Weekend!
