Bowel function and the Microbiome simplified

I came across this terrific article and video about your stool consistency, bowel function and the microbiome by CSIRO researcher Dr. Trevor Lockett.

The article explains how our bowel functions at many levels and the embedded video below explains what the Microbiome is and why we may each want to pay some attention to our own, individual bugs and the food we provide them.

What is the human microbiome ? is a 4 min 29 sec video that is well worth watching.
