You can tell a lot about a person from their…poop. More specifically you can tell about their health. So if they’re unhealthy, their microbes in their poop would be different than a person who is healthy. So for example what we eat can affect the microbes that live in our gut.
The gut microbiome is associated with many metabolic and gastrointestinal diseases, like obesity, Type 2 diabetes, and inflammatory bowel disease. 60 to 70 million people are affected by digestive disorders, and over 97 billion prescriptions are written annually to treat these debilitating illnesses. But a poor diet is the most important factor that can determine whether you get metabolic and gastrointestinal diseases.
