The Baby Boomer Diet: Body Ecology’s Guide to Growing Younger by Donna Gates

Well, if that’s not a title to make you want to dive in and follow every recommendation. I have been familiar with Donna Gates’ Body Ecology Diet, or BED, for a few years now. She’s a big proponent of gut flora. Did you know that more than 60% of your immune system is located in your intestines? Gives a new meaning to those “gut feelings” doesn’t it.

Seems like public enemy number one of our gut health has a name that everyone knows: Louis Pasteur. Yes, the man who discovered “germs” and gave them a universal stamp of disapproval took his theories too far. Indeed, more babies were saved when doctors simply washed their hands before ushering them into this world, but how many of us have been deprived of the valuable nutrition in raw milk?

Here’s a helpful article that will explain it better than I can:
