bugs and brains

Saw the following article at K'weil: Tiny Bugs Are Controlling Your Mind

The idea is that certain bacteria may actually improve your mental health.

Wouldn't it be fascinating if turned out we were, in fact, composite beings…the product of many combinations of different independent entities over the passage of millions (as Endosymbiotic theory has long suggested). And, further, that many things we thought were separate from us were, in fact, part of us?

And so, then bacteria like Lactobacillus rhamnosus are not just benign but vital. Meaning that overuse of antibiotics is literally suicidal.
