Western Microbiome

Burgers and fries have nearly killed our ancestral microbiome.

I’ve loved reading microbiome stuff lately, here’s a good one in Nautilus, How the Western Diet Has Derailed Our Evolution. For an older look from the New Yorker, check out this older one about the fascinating journey of helicobacter pylori.

Thanks for posting the helicobacter journey, I worked on the team that was one of the first to ever discover it during endoscopy. That brought me back to my Endomicroscopy times, good times. 🙂
