Graeme Sait, a permaculture/organics fella from the Australian permaculture scene has a series of videos on his Vimeo page that are full of great information. Sit up and listen if you have constipation issues, especially women--it can be not only uncomfortable but dangerous. This one is a fantastic, not-too-vulgarized-but-still-human explanation of the important interplay between bacteria, our digestive system, our immune system, toxins, and modern nutrition:

"Bringing Back the Good Bugs" Graeme Sait

*Also, note that many of the videos on their channel are free to download from Vimeo. Good resources to use.*
