Why we are seeing so much about good bacteria

The news and TV ads are loaded these days with talk about "good bacteria".  Take Activa for a week and feel better is a popular claim.  I am thrilled to see good bacteria, or gut flora sneaking into the mainstream.  Modern medicines, antibiotics, toxins all play a role in compromising the delicate balance of good and bad bacteria in our guts (when I say GUT I mean the part of our bodies starting with our mouth and ending with our anus).  But, as is often the case, mainstream media has oversimplified the significance, the role and the importance of a properly balanced gut.

But, it is still a step in the right direction.  For those of you who want to know more about the gut's influence on our health, here is a super article with Just the facts, Ma'am.

Read on and tell me what you think.  What are you doing to increase the health of your gut, and in turn, your overall health?
