There is no doubt that one of the most interesting and growing new areas of medical interest involves the gut. More specifically, the gut flora. Long the overlooked unglamorous area of digestion, advances in technology have provided knowledge that is allowing the topic of gut flora to be analyzed and researched like never before. The ability to analyze the gut bacteria populations has allowed researchers to compare the gut flora of healthy and unhealthy groups and make some interesting conclusions. This research has created many headlines across the planet. The most popular has been related to obesity. In an article in the journal Nature, the balance between several microbes started a mass of research on the subject. In the years since, the ability to study the microbiome has evolved several generations (microbes do reproduce rapidly).
