    Heavily researched and footnoted the last hundred pages are references it's an overview of the practical side of what's known about the microbiome and the best book I know of so far that summarizes most of what is known about the affect of microbes on various health conditions and brain statesIt's written by a clinician not a scientist or journalist so it's hard to tell when he's writing from opinion eg his rants against GMOs or whether there's a real scientific consensus on something eg the role of bifidobacterium

    Mr Matthews In Depth Audio Discussion about Content of BookNot a book review but a pointer to Mr Richard Matthews audio discussion about the content of his book The Symbiont Factor with Mr Clint Paddison an hour long conversation with transcript remarkably rich in meaning concepts Language explanations relatable comprehensible to layman yet not oversimplified For non medical or non science minded folks can be a bit of a challenge to absorb everything on first listening If you're captured by the concepts struggling to fully grasp it all you'll understand upon each re hearing Truly fascinating stuff Every one of us needs to understand the complexity nuances of our inner workings Respect the Microbiome It runs our engineLaughing aloud because both gentlemen speaking in full well thought out content dense paragraphs Amusing to me cuz some of us just converse in a few grunts a sentence or 2 Listening to the meeting exchange of 2 brilliant minds is a treatIf the book reads as clearly as Mr Matthews speaks acuire it with the confidence you won't be able to put it down Who'd think bacterial life could be so interesting?
