To make a long story short, animals in general and humans in particular aren’t solo organisms, but macro-organisms, reliant upon symbiotic bacteria for most of our digestion and a surprising amount of our general health.
By number of cells, we are 10% human and 90% bacteria.
And if we let our bacteria get too out of whack, we increase our risks of indigestion, heart disease, diabetes, and more of the diseases of modernity.
So one of my goals this year is to eat with my bacteria in mind.
And apparently, it doesn’t take long to see changes based on diet. Unfortunately, I can’t get the original study to load, but what I’ve read in other places backs up Miche’s vlog:
We see results within days of serious diet changes, and continue to see lifelong benefits.
