Seat of the Prana: Heart Attack and Gut Microbes: Part 1

F4.large

A recent study point out that Microbial communities play significant role in make or break of heart by causing or avoiding heart attack.

Read the research abstract summary first[1]

The gut is a major reservoir of T cells and diverse resident microbes, microbiota, which can influence immune responses in sites distant from the mucosal surfaces. Complete sterilization of the gut has proven to be beneficial in some experimental models of T cell mediated diseases, whereas partial recolonization post sterilization leads to microbial perturbations, a process called dysbiosis, and, worsens the outcome. Gut dysbiosis is thus recently becoming associated with the pathogenesis of several diseases, in part, by mechanisms in which certain bacteria promote T cell activation and enhance disease progression in a vicious cycle. The complex syndrome of heart failure (HF), a leading cause of morbidity and mortality affecting more than 24 million people worldwide, is recently becoming associated with gut dysbiosis and T cell mediated systemic inflammation in patients, but the mechanisms regulating this emerging gut-heart axis, and whether T cell activation and heart infiltration play a role remains unclear. We have previously reported that T cells infiltrate the heart in patients with non-ischemic HF, and using the transverse aortic constriction (TAC) mouse model of HF, demonstrated that T cells are critical regulators of adverse cardiac remodeling and HF. We hypothesized that sterilization of the gut by microbiota depletion prevents adverse cardiac remodeling and HF in a T cell dependent manner. C57/BL6 mice were orally treated with a well-established cocktail of antibiotics and antifungal (ABX) and subjected to TAC or Sham surgery. ABX treatment started 1 week before TAC surgery and was terminated 4 weeks after TAC. In vivo transthoracic echocardiography and hemodynamics showed a preserved ejection fraction and fractional shortening in mice treated with ABX as compared to untreated mice. Furthermore, gut microbiota depletion with ABX resulted in decreased left ventricular interstitial and perivascular fibrosis, and decreased cardiac hypertrophy in response to TAC, as compared to non-ABX treated TAC mice. These changes correlated with significant reduction of CD4 T cell activation in the mediastinal lymph nodes (mLNs) draining the heart, determined by FACS, as well as in the number of CD4 T cells infiltrated in the heart in ABX treated mice. Our findings indicate that ABX treatment results in distal effects in T cell activation occurring during TAC and protects from adverse cardiac remodeling, supporting the potential importance of gut microbiota in pressure overload induced HF. Future studies will determine whether dysbiosis post ABX treatment contributes to pathological cardiac remodeling and the mechanisms regulating the gut-heart axis in non-ischemic HF.

Let us first understand few terms and entities.

What is Gut dysbiosis?

Gut dysbiosis, sometimes called bacterial dysbiosis, means you have a lack of beneficial bacteria in your gastrointestinal (GI) tract.

There are approximately over 400 species of bacteria in your system that make up your gut microbiome. You actually have more bacteria in your gut than you do cells in your body! These bacteria help you digest food, synthesize vitamins, and fight off harmful pathogens. In short, gut bacteria are a fundamental part of your health, and without them you wouldn’t be able to survive.

[2]

What are T-cells (T-Lymphocytes (T-Cells))?

A type of white blood cell. T-lymphocytes are part of the immune system and develop from stem cells in the bone marrow. They help protect the body from infection and may help fight cancer. Also called T cell and thymocyte.

When our body lacks life-enriching Prana, naturally, it is being captured by life-consuming prana. Life-consuming prana or Prana doing job of destruction, flows from GUt to heart and disturbs its working.

Inflammed GUT due to idiotic eating habits, will generate flood of T-cells. When these T-cells travel to Heart, they are responsible for heart failure as per research.


My understanding


Body is made up of srota or channels. Channel that transports Prana, is known as Pranavaha Srotas. It’s root is in heart (left chamber). Seat is in heart. It receives Prana from two places. Lungs and gastrointestinal tract. It is also connected to GUT/Colon. Clogged colon or inflamed GUT , not only disturbs Prana transport but also affect breathing, and vice a versa. If breathing is not proper, GUT/Colon will be disturbed.
 
Heart attack is easy to detect very early by person’s eating habits. Irregular meals, obsession for exotic food against age, gender, season and time of the day, obsession for specific rasa (sweet teeth) – all of them play role in destroying GUT and in turn disturbing Prana transportation by polluting heart the root of the Pranavaha channel.

भूमि वर्ण (Soil Varna) and Cancer : A study links soil metals with cancer mortality

tumblr_makyzcofq71rgyed6o1_1280

I have written in past, with reference to Nighantu that , we can’t escape from Varna system. Whether you accept or not, we are groomed and shaped by our local environment. Our environment also has varna and its geochemical composition, prana movement (wind directions) do make difference in our life.

The geochemical composition of the soil, especially its metals, could be influencing the spatial distribution and mortality patterns of cancer

When you grow up and migrate to distant land, there are chances that your birth-nature (Mula Prakriti) may observe changes. Sometimes, these changes are stressful (if you fail to cope up with sudden changes). Cancer is end-result.

 

 

 

Old notes:

Varna System, Geology ,Farming & Your Food, Your health

GEOGRAPHY and Cognitive Development link

Now, let us come to one more interesting study. This study talks about correlation between soil type, heavy metals found in it and type of cancer cases in that region.

Spanish epidemiologists and geologists have found associations between soil and cancer.

Type of Cancer Metal heavy in Soil
 esophageal  lead
 lung  copper
 brain  arsenic
 bladder  cadmium

These statistical links do not indicate that there is a cause-effect relationship between soil type and cancer, but they suggest that the influence of metals from the earth’s surface on the geographical distribution of tumors should be analyzed.

Go back to old notes shared about and contemplate on Soil Varna system.

All these heavy metals find their way to our body via food and water. That is where importance of affordable clean drinking water and cow-based agriculture play significant role. When we eat chemically grown food , there are high chances that we will accumulate heavy metals in body, which may lead to cancer.

Sometimes, it is not even actual metal consumption but pranic footprint of it, passed via food and water as transport , work against body’s prana, consumes and invite diabetes to cancer. To counter negative prana, we need life-enriching prana. There is only one source in food : All food prepared by  churning. Ghee takes the lead, followed by fermented food as per region. Microbes know how to digest metals. They won’t allow heavy metals to pass into blood stream. They are Ganapati. They remove digestive difficulties. Think about it.

A study links soil metals with cancer mortality

“We have also detected that the highest of cadmium, lead, zinc, manganese and copper concentrations in the soil are statistically associated with a higher mortality due to cancers of the digestive system in men,” explains Pablo Fernández, ISCIII researcher and co-author of the paper, “and in the case of women, a higher mortality from brain cancer in those areas with more cadmium content”.

“This research suggests that the geochemical composition of the soil, especially its metals, could be influencing the spatial distribution and mortality patterns of cancer in Spain, regardless of the socio-demographic context,” says Fernández, who highlights “the great contribution of this work to environmental epidemiology and public health in general”.

Since we are now brainwashed to see packaging and standard factory finishing as quality measure, we also see naturally available food with same lens. I often receive complaint from my family and friends that Gau shala milk is not of same quality every day! It is not possible! You are underrating grand design principles of महाप्राण!

During pregnancy, grand-mother always prescribes some work until 7th month.

But our modern moms don’t like this advice. They love chatting on whatsapp. They love watching TV.

Results into?

More Weight gain than expected.

The heavier the mother, the fewer the bacteria in the breastfeeding.

The study also reveals that the milk of overweight mothers or those who put on more weight than recommended during pregnancy contains a lesser diversity of species.

Spanish researchers have traced the bacterial microbiota map in breast milk, which is often the main source of nourishment for newborns. The study has revealed a larger microbial diversity than originally thought: more than 700 species.

Breast milk is recognized as the most important postpartum element in metabolic and immunologic programming of health of neonates. The factors influencing the milk microbiome and the potential impact of microbes on infant health have not yet been uncovered.

Imagine the vaccum of good bacteria when the breast-fed is replaced by formula feeding?

Similar pro-life prana (bacteria) is present in Gau mata’s milk. But we pasteurize it! 🙁

Reason why lean and freely grazing cows give more nutritious milk than cows kept in curfew?

The human milk microbiome changes over lactation and is shaped by maternal weight and mode of delivery

Background: Breast milk is recognized as the most important postpartum element in metabolic and immunologic programming of health of neonates. The factors influencing the milk microbiome and the potential impact of microbes on infant health have not yet been uncovered.

Objective: Our objective was to identify pre- and postnatal factors that can potentially influence the bacterial communities inhabiting human milk.

Design: We characterized the milk microbial community at 3 different time points by pyrosequencing and quantitative polymerase chain reaction in mothers (n = 18) who varied in BMI, weight gain, and mode of delivery.

Results: We found that the human milk microbiome changes over lactation. Weisella, LeuconostocStaphylococcusStreptococcus, and Lactococcus were predominant in colostrum samples, whereas in 1- and 6-mo milk samples the typical inhabitants of the oral cavity (eg, VeillonellaLeptotrichia, and Prevotella) increased significantly. Milk from obese mothers tended to contain a different and less diverse bacterial community compared with milk from normal-weight mothers. Milk samples from elective but not from nonelective mothers who underwent cesarean delivery contained a different bacterial community than did milk samples from individuals giving birth by vaginal delivery, suggesting that it is not the operation per se but rather the absence of physiological stress or hormonal signals that could influence the microbial transmission process to milk.

Conclusions: Our results indicate that milk bacteria are not contaminants and suggest that the milk microbiome is influenced by several factors that significantly skew its composition. Because bacteria present in breast milk are among the very first microbes entering the human body, our data emphasize the necessity to understand the biological role that the milk microbiome could potentially play for human health.

Cynobacteria

Sometime back I shared how Mitochondria – the power house of the cell resembles to bacterial functions. And scientists even debate to call them bacteria! (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=durqRtrN700)

Now, another link speaks the same about cyanobacteria and photosynthesis !

One more study that helps us realize value of महाप्राण!!

Ultimately, it is महाप्राण and its different forms that drives the living organisms!

Old note:

One friend asked me:

“Why do you call bacteria as just another form of Prana that is not manifested as any multi-cellular organism like human body? And they are no enemies!”

Me: “Because, at the end, we all are manifestation of Prana. Like our body cells, bacteria too are manifestation of Prana.”

Friend: “I am not convinced.”

Me: “Do you know Mitochondria?”

Friend: “No”

Me: “Mitochondria is an organelle found in large numbers in most cells, in which the biochemical processes of respiration and energy production occur. So basically it helps cell in energy production. And for your surprise, they are structurally same as bacteria! A Bacteria within cell! Just like how Prana’s manifestation within cell i.e. Mitochondria is helping cells, they also help outside cell, as a bacteria. Basically, they, like other cells, perform their duties. All living organisms are alive to perform their duties!”

What we really need to realize is that immunity is not war but process of self-realization. Stronger the self-realization, better you can cope up with non-compatible prana manifestation in form of viruses, bacteria, toxins. Think about it 🙂

Listen this for more understanding! 🙂 (y)

How do Plants Make Oxygen? Ask Cyanobacteria

“The ability to generate oxygen through photosynthesis—that helpful service performed by plants and algae, making life possible for humans and animals on Earth—evolved just once, roughly 2.3 billion years ago, in certain types of cyanobacteria. This planet-changing biological invention has never been duplicated, as far as anyone can tell. Instead, according to endosymbiotic theory, all the “green” oxygen-producing organisms (plants and algae) simply subsumed cyanobacteria as organelles in their cells at some point during their evolution.”

I have shared it many times that the ultimate way of cancer prevention is to restore Prana in body. It is lack of prana/blockage of Nadi, that causes cancer.

Gut Bacteria, like any other body organ, is manifestation of Prana. And they being non-organ self of body, play critical role in well-being of body organs.

We can prevent cancer easily. Even cancer management is also less painful compare to modern chemo and radiation torture.

Three fundamental source of Prana for restoration

  1. Raw Prana from the Sun
  2. Churned Prana from Desi cow’s milk and ghee
  3. Food grown on the soil replenished by raw and churned prana (Sun light, cow dung, urine, milk, butter milk)

Gut Bacteria Determine Speed of Tumor Growth in Pancreatic Cancer

https://nyulangone.org/press-releases/gut-bacteria-determine-speed-of-tumor-growth-in-pancreatic-cancer

The population of bacteria in the pancreas increases more than a thousand fold in patients with pancreatic cancer, and becomes dominated by species that prevent the immune system from attacking tumor cells.

These are the findings of a study conducted in mice and in patients with pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDA), a form of cancer that is usually fatal within two years. Led by researchers at NYU School of Medicine, Perlmutter Cancer Center, and NYU College of Dentistry, the study published online March 22 in Cancer Discovery, a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR).

Specifically, the study found that removing bacteria from the gut and pancreas by treating mice with antibiotics slowed cancer growth and reprogrammed immune cells to again “take notice” of cancer cells. Oral antibiotics also increased roughly threefold the efficacy of checkpoint inhibitors, a form of immunotherapy that had previously failed in pancreatic cancer clinical trials, to bring about a strong anti-tumor shift in immunity.

Experiments found that in patients with PDA, pathogenic gut bacteria migrate to the pancreas through the pancreatic duct, a tube that normally drains digestive juices from the pancreas into the intestines. Once in the pancreas, this abnormal bacterial mix (microbiome) gives off cellular components that shut down the immune system to promote cancer growth, say the authors.

Just the two of us: Holding hands can ease pain, sync brainwaves

https://www.colorado.edu/today/2018/02/28/just-two-us-holding-hands-can-ease-pain-sync-brainwaves

Key takeaways

  • Holding the hand of a loved one in pain can synchronize breathing, heart rate and brain wave patterns.
  • The more empathy a comforting partner feels for a partner in pain, the more their brainwaves fall into sync.
  • Increased brain synchronization is associated with less pain.

The study is the latest in a growing body of research exploring a phenomenon known as “interpersonal synchronization,” in which people physiologically mirror the people they are with. It is the first to look at brain wave synchronization in the context of pain, and offers new insight into the role brain-to-brain coupling may play in touch-induced analgesia, or healing touch.

Goldstein came up with the experiment after, during the delivery of his daughter, he discovered that when he held his wife’s hand, it eased her pain.

“I wanted to test it out in the lab: Can one really decrease pain with touch, and if so, how?”

He and his colleagues at University of Haifa recruited 22 heterosexual couples, age 23 to 32 who had been together for at least one year and put them through several two-minute scenarios as electroencephalography (EEG) caps measured their brainwave activity. The scenarios included sitting together not touching; sitting together holding hands; and sitting in separate rooms. Then they repeated the scenarios as the woman was subjected to mild heat pain on her arm.

Prana Controls Emotions : Rhythm of breathing affects memory and fear

Breathing

If you suggest someone Surya Namaskar or Pranayam, you are deemed as regressive, religious fanatic and what not! 😀

You believe it or not, life exists due to Prana(प्राण). And controlling प्राण is called प्राण विद्या / प्राणायाम.

प्राण विद्या / प्राणायाम is not complete without worshiping the Sun, Ganesha and Hanuman! As they are different forms/Sources of the प्राण!

Read this research. It says, your breathing affects memory!

Let me add, it does not only affect memory but intelligence! Bodily intelligence, cellular intelligence! Ganesha is a Kavi (Not the one we see around who generated poems in bulk). Kavi is intelligence personified! Prana decides intelligence!

When we talk about cellular intelligence, it is immunity! Innate response from body against non-self elements.

There are entire science developed behind right nostril breathing and left nostril breathing. When and how! How much! Deep breathing! Shallow breathing!

Even if you are athiest (Nastika), you cannot escape from control of Prana. If there is not Prana, it is death!

Rhythm of breathing affects memory and fear

https://news.northwestern.edu/stories/2016/12/rhythm-of-breathing-affects-memory-and-fear/

CHICAGO — Northwestern Medicine scientists have discovered for the first time that the rhythm of breathing creates electrical activity in the human brain that enhances emotional judgments and memory recall.

These effects on behavior depend critically on whether you inhale or exhale and whether you breathe through the nose or mouth.

In the study, individuals were able to identify a fearful face more quickly if they encountered the face when breathing in compared to breathing out. Individuals also were more likely to remember an object if they encountered it on the inhaled breath than the exhaled one. The effect disappeared if breathing was through the mouth.

“One of the major findings in this study is that there is a dramatic difference in brain activity in the amygdala and hippocampus during inhalation compared with exhalation,” said lead author Christina Zelano, assistant professor of neurology at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. “When you breathe in, we discovered you are stimulating neurons in the olfactory cortex, amygdala and hippocampus, all across the limbic system.”

The study was published Dec. 6 in the Journal of Neuroscience.

The senior author is Jay Gottfried, professor of neurology at Feinberg.

Northwestern scientists first discovered these differences in brain activity while studying seven patients with epilepsy who were scheduled for brain surgery. A week prior to surgery, a surgeon implanted electrodes into the patients’ brains in order to identify the origin of their seizures. This allowed scientists to acquire electro-physiological data directly from their brains. The recorded electrical signals showed brain activity fluctuated with breathing. The activity occurs in brain areas where emotions, memory and smells are processed.

Nasal Respiration Entrains Human Limbic Oscillations and Modulates Cognitive Function

http://www.jneurosci.org/content/36/49/12448

The need to breathe links the mammalian olfactory system inextricably to the respiratory rhythms that draw air through the nose. In rodents and other small animals, slow oscillations of local field potential activity are driven at the rate of breathing (∼2–12 Hz) in olfactory bulb and cortex, and faster oscillatory bursts are coupled to specific phases of the respiratory cycle. These dynamic rhythms are thought to regulate cortical excitability and coordinate network interactions, helping to shape olfactory coding, memory, and behavior. However, while respiratory oscillations are a ubiquitous hallmark of olfactory system function in animals, direct evidence for such patterns is lacking in humans. In this study, we acquired intracranial EEG data from rare patients (Ps) with medically refractory epilepsy, enabling us to test the hypothesis that cortical oscillatory activity would be entrained to the human respiratory cycle, albeit at the much slower rhythm of ∼0.16–0.33 Hz. Our results reveal that natural breathing synchronizes electrical activity in human piriform (olfactory) cortex, as well as in limbic-related brain areas, including amygdala and hippocampus. Notably, oscillatory power peaked during inspiration and dissipated when breathing was diverted from nose to mouth. Parallel behavioral experiments showed that breathing phase enhances fear discrimination and memory retrieval. Our findings provide a unique framework for understanding the pivotal role of nasal breathing in coordinating neuronal oscillations to support stimulus processing and behavior.

SIGNIFICANCE STATEMENT Animal studies have long shown that olfactory oscillatory activity emerges in line with the natural rhythm of breathing, even in the absence of an odor stimulus. Whether the breathing cycle induces cortical oscillations in the human brain is poorly understood. In this study, we collected intracranial EEG data from rare patients with medically intractable epilepsy, and found evidence for respiratory entrainment of local field potential activity in human piriform cortex, amygdala, and hippocampus. These effects diminished when breathing was diverted to the mouth, highlighting the importance of nasal airflow for generating respiratory oscillations. Finally, behavioral data in healthy subjects suggest that breathing phase systematically influences cognitive tasks related to amygdala and hippocampal functions.

Why wound healing slows down with aging?

0

Older bodies need longer to mend. This reality of aging has been documented since World War I, with the observation that wounds heal slower in older soldiers.

It is because with aging, we consume our प्राण rapidly in activities like copulation, daily chores stress of family life and mindless sleeping and eating habits.

प्राण is our immunity. With aging, disruptions to communication between skin cells and their immune cells slow down this step of wound healing.

This is the reason प्राणवर्धक घी & honey is necessity in old age. Oil massage too.

Old age does not starts at 60. Body starts degradation at 21. 🙂 We realize it much later in 30s when all complications start.

Impaired Epidermal to Dendritic T Cell Signaling Slows Wound Repair in Aged Skin.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27863246

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5364946/

“Within days of an injury, skin cells migrate in and close the wound, a process that requires coordination with nearby immune cells. With aging, disruptions to communication between skin cells and their immune cells slow down this step. Discovery suggests new approaches to developing treatments that could speed healing among older people.

Whenever a wound occurs, the body needs to repair it quickly to restore its protective skin barrier. Wound healing is one of the most complex processes to occur in the human body. Numerous types of cells, molecular pathways, and signaling systems go to work over timescales that vary from seconds to months. Changes related to aging have been observed in every step of this process. Both skin cells and immune cells contribute to this elaborate process, which begins with the formation of a scab. New skin cells known as keratinocytes later travel in as a sheet to fill in the wound under the scab.

You are as Young as your Prana (GUT) is

Microbes
You are as young as your ability to protect depleting Prana is.
 
Prana depletes when you have no control of certain habits.
 
1) Eating 2) Exercise 3) Sex
On top of it, there are no regime to refill the prana like Pranayama. Environment is polluted and low at prana.
In Mahabharata war, many warriors including Shri Krishna, Shri Arjuna, were above 70s. They were fighting and leading young generation of Abhimanyu! Fighting together! Age does not matter! Aging is state of Prana. If Prana is powerful, you can remain forever young.
In reality, bacteria is nothing but manifestation of प्राण. प्राण consolidation for your “i”-ness is based on state of your mind. Hence, it is all mental!

So when the subtle bodily प्राणमय कोष is full of compatible and stable प्राण , there is no infection. When it is disturbed, due to environmental stress, or your own mental stress or your physical stress (lack of good food, air and water), or all of them – we see so called bacteria-led infections.

This is the reason, when you feel low at प्राण, preserve it. Fasting helps here. Boiling water helps. हवाफेर = changing place for temporarily helps. Pranayam helps. Walking helps. Surya Namaskar helps. Sandhya helps. Homa helps.

First and foremost thing is to understand body beyond physical body. We have mind. We have energy footprints. We have प्राणमय शरीर. All of them can be afflicted by disease. Keeping all of them healthy is our responsibility. Mere food won’t help. Radical change in habits needed.

Strengthen your prana whose manifestation is microbes and body cells. Spend good amount of time in nature. Esp. during sunrise and sunset. Do Surynamaskar. Eat food that is loved by beneficial bacteria in your GUT. Reduce outside food. Cook for self and family. Reduce stress. Laugh a lot! Regularize routine. Same time for meal and sleep at least. Include desi gay milk, ghee in diet. Include food grown using desi gay dung and urine. Avoid polished food (sugar, salt, rice)

Here is the interesting paper that confirms that you are as young as your Prana is!

‘Ridiculously healthy’ elderly have the same gut microbiome as healthy 30 year-olds

mediarelations.uwo.ca/2017/10/11/ridiculously-healthy-elderly-gut-microbiome-healthy-30-year-olds/

“The main conclusion is that if you are ridiculously healthy and 90 years old, your gut microbiota is not that different from a healthy 30 year old in the same population,” said Greg Gloor, PhD, the principal investigator on the study and also a professor at Western’s Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry and Scientist at Lawson Health Research Institute. Whether this is cause or effect is unknown, but the study authors point out that it is the diversity of the gut microbiota that remained the same through their study group.

“This demonstrates that maintaining diversity of your gut as you age is a biomarker of healthy aging, just like low-cholesterol is a biomarker of a healthy circulatory system,” Gloor said. The researchers suggest that resetting an elderly microbiota to that of a 30-year-old might help promote health.

“By studying healthy people, we hope to know what we are striving for when people get sick,” said Reid.

The Gut Microbiota of Healthy Aged Chinese Is Similar to That of the Healthy Young

http://msphere.asm.org/content/2/5/e00327-17

The microbiota of the aged is variously described as being more or less diverse than that of younger cohorts, but the comparison groups used and the definitions of the aged population differ between experiments. The differences are often described by null hypothesis statistical tests, which are notoriously irreproducible when dealing with large multivariate samples. We collected and examined the gut microbiota of a cross-sectional cohort of more than 1,000 very healthy Chinese individuals who spanned ages from 3 to over 100 years. The analysis of 16S rRNA gene sequencing results used a compositional data analysis paradigm coupled with measures of effect size, where ordination, differential abundance, and correlation can be explored and analyzed in a unified and reproducible framework. Our analysis showed several surprising results compared to other cohorts. First, the overall microbiota composition of the healthy aged group was similar to that of people decades younger. Second, the major differences between groups in the gut microbiota profiles were found before age 20. Third, the gut microbiota differed little between individuals from the ages of 30 to >100. Fourth, the gut microbiota of males appeared to be more variable than that of females. Taken together, the present findings suggest that the microbiota of the healthy aged in this cross-sectional study differ little from that of the healthy young in the same population, although the minor variations that do exist depend upon the comparison cohort.

IMPORTANCE We report the large-scale use of compositional data analysis to establish a baseline microbiota composition in an extremely healthy cohort of the Chinese population. This baseline will serve for comparison for future cohorts with chronic or acute disease. In addition to the expected difference in the microbiota of children and adults, we found that the microbiota of the elderly in this population was similar in almost all respects to that of healthy people in the same population who are scores of years younger. We speculate that this similarity is a consequence of an active healthy lifestyle and diet, although cause and effect cannot be ascribed in this (or any other) cross-sectional design. One surprising result was that the gut microbiota of persons in their 20s was distinct from those of other age cohorts, and this result was replicated, suggesting that it is a reproducible finding and distinct from those of other populations.
