The microbiome determines inflammation, autism, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, coronary heart disease, and cancer. The two major groups of bacteria are Firmicutes and Bacteroidetes, which make up 80% of the total gut bacteria. A minimum of 80% of your immune system exists in your large intestine High levels of Firmicutes are associated with obesity, diabetes, and inflammation.
Unfortunately, our Standard American Diet (SAD) has to lead us to higher rates of inflammatory diseases. The microbiome is destroyed by antibiotic exposure. The microbiome is important in detoxification and immunity.
