An article in The Times of India this morning talks about how -
Which disease you get and how quickly and successfully you recover from it depends on your gut flora.
Of course this is not a new finding
But is very significant in connection with COVID because for the first time in many years so many people across the world have been afflicted by the same virus.
And the rates at which they have fallen sick and the speed at which they have recovered have varied considerably.
Of course this is because of the genes they carry.
But it is important to remember that we have a genetic structure that we are born with.
And a genetic structure that we acquire - the second genome.
Which is made up of the genes of the organisms that inhabit our bodies.
And the largest number of these organisms live in the gut.
And that is why gut health is extremely important.
I have written two very important articles on this for Morisons Baby Dreams (@morisonsbabydreams)
And I also talk about it in detail in my book -
