It is estimated that we, as modern people, have lost about half of the microbial species occupying our gastrointestinal (GI) tracts compared to indigenous populations who hunt and gather. Exposure to antibiotics, glyphosate residues in food, other herbicides/pesticides, synthetic sweeteners like aspartame, emulsifying agents in ice cream or salad dressings--we swim in a sea of microbiome disrupting factors. 

Among the consequences? Loss of a number of species crucial to health. We are just beginning to identify these lost microbes, then take steps to replenish them, a strategy that is far more powerful than just taking some commercial probiotic.
