(Medical Xpress)—The importance of the bacteria that live within our digestive tracts is just beginning to be fully realized, and while it has long been known that they assist in digestion and absorption of nutrients, little has been understood about the stability of the microbiota population. Now a U.S. study suggests the gut flora are relatively stable over several years and possibly over our entire lifetimes.
it would look to me that families share the types and numbers of microbiota in their gut,
this can be looked at similar to the way genes impact family groups,
and could explain why some family groups are more likely to display symptoms.
so maby part genes and part gut flora are two sides of the same coin

this means any chemicals ingested could kill off the healthy bacteria that keep us healthy.

Controversy surrounds the apparent explosive rise in autism cases. Heightened awareness of autism spectrum disorders and more diligent efforts at diagnosis must account for some of the increase, yet many researchers believe a genuine epidemic is occurring. In addition to hereditary components, Western-style diets and overuse of antibiotics at an early age may be contributing to the problem by lowering the diversity of the gut microflora.
IF the toxic effect of BT poison and stomach damage from GMO ingestion damages the micro-flora communities in your gut there may be long term effects on your health.
the study of these gut microbes in increasing at a very fast rate as the scientific community recognises the very important job the preform for our bodies.
it would look like any food that kills off healthy gut bacteria that could effect,
Lower diversity of gut microbes was positively correlated with the presence of autistic symptoms in the study. The authors stress that bacterial richness and diversity are essential for maintaining a robust and adaptable bacterial community capable of fighting off environmental challenges. "We believe that a diverse gut is a healthy gut," Krajmalnik-Brown says.
it could also be aggravating other problems like diabetes.
One of the reasons we started addressing this topic is the fact that autistic children have a lot of GI problems that can last into adulthood," Krajmalnik-Brown says. "Studies have shown that when we manage these problems, their behavior improves dramatically."
if we look at our gut microbes like a healthy community,
it makes me ask the question what does eating GMOs with there built in poisons do to our gut microbes,
and could the rise of microbe killing BT toxins be the first cause in autism?
i am not a doctor and this is not intended as medical advice, consult your doctor for medical advice
but you should be aware that your gut has microbes that could be the key to good health,
do you really want to eat foods that kill of our macrobiotic, symbiotic health regulators?
