Imagine a existence without bacteria living in, on, and around your intestine. How might you might be living: more sickness or healthier? Regardless of your physical health, you would in all likelihood sense stressful and depressed, with little preference to see associates and your own family. at least that is what research has shown in mice with limited gut bacteria.
