This story was recently posted on NPR’s: The Salt / What’s on Your Plate? Are microbes part of the solution in eating our way into better health?
This is a worthwhile read in order to understand the current state of the art between microbes and their role in our nutritional system. When everyone is fighting for better food, maybe we can make faster/better improvements by tweaking the efficiency of the microbes converting our foods into nutrients. More bang for the buck!
