After demonstrating the plausibility and indeed likelihood of his thesis, the author suggests ways to reduce the microbial burden we all carry. I would have liked to have seen more on strengthening of the immune system (other than gut barrier and skin function). Since microbes are everywhere, strengthening our immunity seems to me the best way to defend ourselves.
Possibly the most startling aspect of the book is that, if the thesis pans out, it overturns many of our notions of disease. If heart disease is caused by microbes and not diet or some other factor(s), that's a revolutionary idea.
It also finally convinced me I should stop procrastinating on monitoring my microbiome, something I hadn't understood the immediate benefit of before.
