PBS NEWSHOUR: DR. ERIC GREEN AND THE STUDY OF MICROBES IN THE HUMAN BODY 6/14/20012
This is an interview worth watching. The segment, which is under 8 minutes, has very rich content.
One bit of information that I learned from this video is that there are 100 trillion microbes in the human body. When that terrain is compromised, it seems to me and many others, that is the beginning of possible illness. To begin to lessen the odds of illness from occurring, the gastrointestinal tract needs to be repopulated with healthy bacteria.
Secondly, it is stated by Dr. Green, we would not be able to digest our food if it was not for the microbes in our GI tract. That may seem like common knowledge to some, but to most it is not known. When charitable organizations provide food for malnourished people they often give them foods they can not digest. One solution introduced in this study is the introduction of microbes into their guts.
One solution is introduced during this concise segment on the PBS Newshour. An interview with Dr. Eric Green 6/14/2012 link here. Repopulating the GI tract of those suffering from malnutrition and other diseases with microbes – healthy bacteria.
