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

Humans evolved on a diet very different from today's eating habits. To be healthier, leaner, stronger and fitter, we must re-think our diet and remove some of the food groups we consider basic.

Western diet, typically high in animal fat and protein and low in fibre, increases the risk of cancer. The Mediterranean diet is high in fibre and low in red meat and has been likened with anti-inflammatory effects and an improved immune system.
This leads us...
Only 5 percent of people in the US meet the Institute of Medicine’s recommended daily target of 25 grams for women and 38 grams for men. That amounts to a population-wide deficiency.
