Microbiomul intestinal

Studiile recente arata ca, in functie de populatiile bacteriene din intestin, oamenii se impart in trei clase.

A recent study conducted by researchers from Stanford, Harvard and Princeton Universities supports a part of this hypothesis, pointing out that a low fiber diet helps reduce the number of beneficial microorganisms in the human colon causing irreversible and hereditary damage.
