I think we’ve all been fed the idea that we need bacteria to function and survive and so on - but I have come to the conclusion that not all is as it seems. In fact, is it not strange that bacteria rules so much of human behavior (down to our thoughts and sexual preferences), that it may be excessive in the human body generally, and it is consuming our nutrition meant for OUR cells and maybe - just maybe, decreasing bacterial presence would actually benefit us? Not necessarily with traditional antibiotics.
I do not think avoiding bacteria is possible nor should we - but I just don’t think we need it in the quantities we have it, I think bacteria needs us more than we need it. In fact there’s been research done and I am pretty sure humans evolved so closely to bacteria we have organs supporting it’s storage (not just the appendix) but that’s a great example, and people survive without the appendix. Why? If it’s so “necessary”. (Used for storage of “Good Bacteria”)
And now instead of probiotics, prebiotics are all the rage. I just think we should question this a little.
Why would it be so crazy to consider, that maybe we can synthesize vitamins on our own, again, without bacteria interfering with this process or fermenting something for us? Evolution isn’t a perfect process, and due to this I don’t think that humans (currently) are in a perfect state, although the potential is there.
Just food for thought. Not saying I am correct - it’s just a theory. But a lot of scientific studies are paid for purposefully for advertising purposes or money laundering, so ask yourself: how much of what we know is actually true?
