Moderator's Note -- This thread has been split off from --http://forums.phoenixrising.me/index.php?threads/interview-ian-lipkin%E2%80%99s-million-dollar-appeal-for-microbiome-study.28139/page-12. I don't understand why Lipkin is talking about this research as if it's a new topic. There so much research out there that shows the relationship between chronic fatigue syndrome/fibromyalgia, the microbiome, and the immune system. And, they already know what bugs and what byproducts of bugs are in the gut. Some people even know what to do about them.
