"The scientific world has undergone a revolution in the way it understands the gastrointestinal tract, specifically the role played by the bacteria that live there… we’ve only just recently appreciated that if the microbiota are not being properly attended to – if they’re not being fed enough plant fiber or if they’re being indiscriminately wiped out by the overuse of antibiotics or they’re damaged over time by excessive amounts of stress hormones – a Pandora’s Box of bad things gets opened up. Weight, digestion and the workings of the immune system can go haywire.” – Excerpt from THE SWIFT DIET
