This rise can be blamed partly to the microbial extinction inside us, altered by Sanitation, Antibiotics and Junk food.

Americans consume less fiber than what is recommended, eating fewer nuts, whole grains and fruits and vegetables.

Regular poor diet leads to a rise in endotoxins in our bloodstream, making the immune system respond to this by inflammation.

The Western world has stomach microbial communities that could digest junk food and might re-diversify and recover (to a limited extent) if we just ate more whole grains and veggies.

As Western civilization fails to nourish key microbes, the type of food taken is starving them out of existence. Many factors cause this:

The microbial die-outs, a form of mutation inside our stomach due to our specific diets, gets compounded across generations.

Research found the following difference in stomach microbes of different individuals:

Westerners who grew up in villages, in farms, living among livestock at a ranch, or are exposed to certain infections at an early age, tend to have a lower risk of autoimmune diseases.

Due to the new kinds of microbes discovered in villagers, all the previous research on diet and microbes, which used the baseline data of the Western civilization microbe, thought to be the healthy and normal microbe, is now incorrect.
