The primarily vegetarian diet of rural Indians might be keeping their gut healthy and populated with good bacteria, a recent study has found.

Scientists from Translational Health Science and Technology Institute in Faridabad found that gram positive bacteria is more populous in the gut of Indians than gram negative, as believed earlier.

The human digestive tract is populated by trillions of bacteria that aid digestion by breaking down certain food types that the human body cannot digest. Gut microbes are also responsible for turning the inactive drug we take orally into active compounds.

“Past studies of the India microbiome had shown that the gram negative bacteria was more populous in the Indian gut, but that was because the kit being used to analyse the DNA was more sensitive to gram negative bacteria than gram positive ones,” said Dr Babatosh Das, the lead researcher on paper, published in the journal, Scientific Reports .
