This approach has been critical in increasing the life span and wellness of people. But new research is showing that society has also paid a steep cost for the gains we’ve made. These consequences can include health conditions such as asthma, increased immune reactivity, and obesity, to name a few.
So what’s the path forward? Are we past the point of no return, having already created a generation of treatment-resistant microbes?
Fortunately, the answer to the latter is a reassuring “no.” But the solution may involve getting reacquainted with some “Old Friends.”
In our whitepaper, we take a look at recent research to see what role “Old Friends” – friendly environmental microbes – and probiotic products may play in creating a more diverse microbial state.
