Mainstream medicine . . . catching up

I hate to be the one who says “I told you so” but when the pointed commentary fits ;-)

The news wires are carrying, today, this story about research showing a correlation between obesity and gut flora.

They aren’t sure what the relationship means, yet. Specifically, nobody knows if, say, innoculating the gut with certain strains of microbe could promote weight loss.

But at least they’re finally acknowledging that gut microbes play a role in human health. Kind of like what the alt health crowd has been saying for, oh, thirty-odd years now?
