Interesting new research shows we all have a gut bacteria "type."

Check out this interesting article summarizing recent research showing that all humans appear to fit into one of three types when it comes to the bacterial ecosystem in our intestines. This implies that all humans can be characterized by gut type in a manner similar to blood types, and that doctors might some day be able to utilize information about gut types when treating patients. Very interesting!
