I just read this less than 5 minutes ago. It was interesting, considering that so many diseases are correlated with chronic inflammation. Seems like a prevailing theory is that anything that disrupts systems in the body leads to inflammation which causes a cascade of symptoms. Gum inflammation leads to heart disease. Pelvic inflammation or cervical inflammation leading to cervical and/or uterine cancer. Esophagitis leads to Barret's esophagus leads to esophageal cancer.

Not that there seems like a bright lining for those of us that have been fat our whole lives. I'd be willing to have a fecal transplant from a skinny person to see if it helps. It's less invasive than my surgery.

I That was a FASCINATING article ! Ty for posting it CW!

Ive often wondered why I don?t have to struggle with reaching below goal weight regain or any health issues 9 years post op.

but I did not know that even the best biome - diversity increasing efforts like taking multi probiotics seem to work far better if you?ve been eating this way since childhood ( I have my parents are also very healthy eaters ) HMMM...
