So..the various bacteria inhibiting our gut are a better version than the ones floating around in the stomachs of our ancestors over 50000 years ago.
Or is it the other way around? I mean they could eat things we can't...
110 billion types of bacteria are thought to exist on earth, our science has checked out about 9000 of them. So yes I figure the evolution of the
bacteria would bring about some very competitive micro organisms. They insert genes into an organism to make it produce a protein upon which it feeds.
Today this to me means we have the bacteria that have proven to be the best at doing this gene insertion (they eat more and survive more often)
Which leads to more mutations or evolution, their is a defense to this called the species barrier. Our science is lowering that barrier which is why I
think we have more new diseases now and a serious risk of swine flu mutating.
