I chose the term TAPS (toxin-producing) for the gut microbes that injured all bosy organs under varying conditions. LAPs build strong defenses in many ways.

These were “good fermenters.” Our later human ancestors learned—experientially or intuitively, it seems—learned ferment foods to enhance their value. We can call it “good fermentation.” Every chronic

In simple words, oxidation is loss of energy and a substance that loses electron energy is oxidized. Butter turns rancid, a flower wilts, meat decomposes—that is oxidation. A person develops a cataract and loses his eyesight. That happens when the proteins in
