    Variations found in bacterial communities indicate there may not be a "single" healthy microbiome but many:

    "What our data shows is that just because a person's microbiome is different doesn't make it unhealthy," Schloss added. 'It demonstrates there's more to learn about the factors that cause one's microbiome to change.' Further, knowing why communities change could help researchers understand related diseases and disease risk and the effect that treatments like probiotics, antibiotics, and fecal transplants may have."
