The microbial die-outs, a form of mutation inside our stomach due to our specific diets, gets compounded across generations.
This is leading to a sort of internal 'extinction' of microbes, which were abundant inside our ancestors, but are not present in us.
As Western civilization fails to nourish key microbes, the type of food taken is starving them out of existence. Many factors cause this:
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.
Research found the following difference in stomach microbes of different individuals:
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.
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.
Regular poor diet leads to a rise in endotoxins in our bloodstream, making the immune system respond to this by inflammation.
Chronic inflammation, every time we eat junk food, leads to cellular dysfunction and diseases of the stomach and organs.
As the Medical and Pharma industries get equipped with better research and technology, there should ideally be a decline in diseases. Instead, we have an increase in non-communicable diseases.
This rise can be blamed partly to the microbial extinction inside us, altered by Sani...

Instead of munching on fruits, vegetables, beans, nuts, and seeds, more than half of the calories Americans consume come from ultra-processed foods. On any given day, nearly 40 percent of Americans eat fast food. These prepared and processed meals tend to be low in fiber, or even fiber free. ...
Eating a fiber-rich diet is associated with better gastrointestinal health and a reduced risk of heart attacks, strokes, high cholesterol, obesity, type 2 diabetes, even some cancers. Fiber slows the absorption of glucose — which evens out our blood sugar levels — and also lowers cholesterol and ...

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
