One in three babies is born by cesarean in the U.S., well in excess of the 10 to 15 percent recommended by the WHO. In New York City, a number of our hospitals have rates as high as 40 percent and if you venture to certain Metro area hospitals, cesarean rates approach and even exceed 50 percent.
Blame modern hygiene, an industrialized food supply, an excess of antibiotics, or all of the above. Collectively, we are driving more and more of the good little microbial guys in our guts to extinction. And yet, we very much need these good fellows to keep the baddies from wreaking havoc on our health.
