What Is Your Gut’s Personality?

“You’re probably the member of a club you didn’t even know existed. According to research published this week, we all have one of three ecosystems of bugs in our guts. ”  Andy Coghlan.

The New Scientist recently published a study about bacteria in human digestive tracts.  Scientists already knew that what you think of as “you” is only about 1/10 of the real you.  90% of your cells aren’t even human!  Our bodies are made of a lot of 3rd party bacteria.  And now we know that our guts will fall into one of three bateria camps.  Depending on which of the three families your bacteria belong to, you will get your energy from different foods, such as carbs or protein.   For more weird science news about your body, check out some of our fun books.  And if you need more suggestions, you know where to find us!
