    Cyanobacteria are one of the minor phyla present in the gut at low levels in some individuals. They are normal gut constituents.

    Like many of the minor phyla constituents, not much is known about function in the gut. Here is a study.

    uBiome (the u is really the greek letter mu, short for micro) is a SanFrancisco based company which identifies human microbiome constituents by DNA sequencing. It started out as a citizen scientist type project whereby anyone can order tests and be given the results to interpret themselves.

    More recently they have added a couple of more specific tests where interpretation is offered, but these must be ordered through a doctor and results are sent to the doctor.

    Was just looking at cyanobacteria found in lakes it makes BMAA replacing l serine causing misfolded proteins

    I have a hunch that agrobacterium, used to genetically modify plants, will be proven to play a bigger role in chronic disease than was suspected.

    Not too long ago, there was "no evidence" of horizontal gene transfer from agrobacterium to human cells. Now there is.

    However, decades will have to pass before any of it's damaging effects will be recognized. Just imagine all the lawsuits against Monsanto & co.
