There has been a lot of talk on here about diets, Intestinal permeation, pro-biotics and the like. I just thought I would share this article I found recently from the New York Times. It's really quite fascinating, how they are trying to now study the gut flora with real scientific observation. It's also interesting that NO ONE REALLY KNOWS THAT MUCH ABOUT IT, YET.

Pay close attention to the last of the article, where the scientist really don't know what to recommend for a healthy gut, or what a healthy guy is for that matter.

Enjoy
