that any of the critters they are talking about are available in your average pro-biotic. Most of them have 3-12 different strains of bacteria. I haven't seen a definitive count of the number in the average gut, but it is a lot higher. Many of them can't be easily placed in a pill, and we don't know what they do or do not do anyway.

publiclurker I seem to recall a statement from Mojang (354 comments)
