La Voix Off

The Oct. 22, 2012 issue of The New Yorker published an article entitled "Germs Are Us", by Michael Specter. The damage caused to the human organism and its attendant "enormous cloud of microorganisms" by widespread use of antibiotics is cogently and persuasively set forth. The reason why probiotic treatment could help to right the imbalances caused is outlined, along with the caveat that almost nothing is proven, and little is known about what probiotics could or should consist of. The article is about six pages long, and well worth the read. I have scanned it and made it available on the web.
E. coli—friend or foe?
