thanks enjoyed that article it mentioned so much that you have talked about over the years. I even sent a note to one of the researchers, hope this was alright  :)

Greetings from NY..

I read with great interest the recent article in  Nature that mentioned your work. The intestinal biome is of great interest to me as it impacts health in so many ways. I am a nurse ( 22 years) working in Endoscopy, where I see a great deal of GI tracts that are unhealthy. With little else then medication for doctors to treat patients, patients never really get well.

I have been a great follower of Dr. Peter D'Adamo who has been writing about the impact of diet its role in  epigenetics for many years. Although the focus of many of his books is for the general public if one looks deeper you find that he has been able to understand the intestinal biome like no one else. Your research strengthens his case that we need individualized diets based on our body chemistry.  

I wish you great success with your research, as it has the potential to turn the world upside down.:)

Nicholson has already found some compelling evidence that genes expressed by the gut flora have effects that reach far beyond the digestive tract. “We've found deep compartmental connections between microbial status and bile acid metabolism,” he says, “[And] there are some staggering connectivities between blood pressure and gut microbial metabolites.”

Like this part. :)
