3. I wonder if this is part of the Human Microbiome Project?

Scientists are finding links between the human gut bacteria and the immune system....and a good portion of the "good" bacteria in our gut comes from soil...or at least it used to. Food is washed and processed so much that most of the good "dirt" that has the good bacteria is washed away and never gets into our gut. A strong healthy immune system depends on a healthy gut and the good bacteria that populates it. Good bacteria helps with the gut tight junctions (another good thing to read up on).
