If you have 47 minutes take a listen to Terry Gross interviewing Dr Martin J. Blaser - author of "Missing Microbes" . I love it when hard science takes a moment to substantiate my wierd world view . In my outside career I am daily exposed to MRSA , C-Difficile , VRE , microbes exhibiting extended spectrum beta-lactamse and who knows what else . I am sure this interview will confirm many practices we speak about on permies.com and I am going to start a fresh batch of kefir today.

I could believe that people eat too much dead food. Never mind the antibiotics, cooking kills of a lot of beneficial bacteria before food even gets swallowed. Sauerkraut is full of good lactobacillus; steamed sauerkraut on your hot dog doesn't have them.
