    I love the phrase, “Benefit doesn’t always follow new, costly or only specially-available therapeutics”. Seems obvious, but it never ceases to amaze me how “new” and “costly” is often equated with expected benefit. Thanks, Deborah, for encouraging everyone to pause and reflect on this issue.

    Naturally occurring microbes in fermented food as medicine — sounds great to me — lets get away from commercialization and move towards an understanding of balanced diet which includes fermented foods — can counteract the perils of a western diet and some of the iatrogenic side effects of our current healthcare practices.

    This article is truly interesting and worth reading! The topic provoked some thoughts in readers. Personally, I have never over-consumed probiotic bacteria foods, but I have never thought of the consequence of doing that either. It is perhaps better to consume everything just enough instead of zero or too much. I always try to take care of myself well to pursue my dream in golf, so I’m very interested in health-related topics. Thanks for your post.
