The Last Furlong

Comments on the race of life.

What we are just discovering


If you follow this blog you will know we “eat funny” and “think funny” – well I do and some of our children do. But I can’t talk for Mr Furlong. I think a lot of the time, he just co-operates!

Human microbes, which is something that has been  talked about by Holistic Healers and other “funny” people for many years, is becoming real science.

At last!

Rob Knight is a pioneer in studying human microbes, the community of tiny single-cell organisms living inside our bodies that have a huge — and largely unexplored — role in our health. “The three pounds of microbes that you carry around with you might be more important than every single gene you carry around in your genome,” he says.

How our microbes make us who we are

I'm someone also pounding the Path, just like you.. I'm retired, going into Old Age and loving my life. I'm hoping to remain happy and well for as long as possible. Old Age is not SO bad - yet!
