The human colon houses billions and billions of bacteria and we are gradually getting to know how the make up of the bacteria can have a great impact on your health. What is the reason behind the fact that most of the autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis, Crohn’s, colitis, rheumatoid arthritis and lupus are extremely prevalent in the developed countries more than the less developed nations? One theory behind this is that less childhood exposure to various gut bacteria increases an individual’s chances of contracting such ailments since the lack of exposure tends to suppress the development of an immune system that can respond to them. It is much safer to assume that the more the exposure to sanitation products and antibiotics in the developed countries is the cause of this difference.
