Human Microbiome

Updated: Mar 28

Healthy individuals have 1000 microbe species in the colon whereas sick individuals have around 500.

Is our increasing push for cleanliness and sterility contributing to our malaise, increasing allergen sensitivity and chronic intolerances like IBS?

The FDA has recently banned biocide handwashing components like troclosan as it is allowing certain resistant pathogens to gain the upper hand eg. Will the Methycillin Resistant Staph aureas (MRSA) in our hospitals next appear in our foods and our homes? Ask someone if they have ever heard of competitive inhibition? There is actually a handwash now on the market with probiotics added!
