Food could play a role in the formation of the microbial flora within the human gut. This has been shown time and again in several studies and research. Now researchers from San Diego State University have shown that food could be used as a medicine to modulate the gut microbial flora and promote the growth of beneficial bacteria within the gut. They also noted that some of the food affects the gut microbes by raising the production of viruses called bacteriophages. These viruses can keep the harmful bacteria levels low while promoting the population ...
