Gut Microbes

Interesting article from Wired Magazine “The Surprising Gut Microbes of African Hunter-Gatherers”:

Comments after reading: I think the difference is in what they don’t eat! Perhaps those supposedly disease-producing gut bacteria aren’t producing disease in the Hadza because they don’t have the refined sugars, hydrogenated fats, and numerous other poisons that can cause our guts to be unhealthy and thereby more susceptible to the bad bacteria.

What do you think?

    Along with rarely being exposed to what we all eat and where we live and our activities, I think of Homeopathy (like “cures” like) ‘s theory for the goings-on in the guts of the Hadza folks.
    And, no, I am not intending to forage for those choices.
    I do eat from my yard’s greens! Yum!
