The impact of probiotics and their health benefits have merit, however as stated in the article "The unlimited use of probiotics might have unwanted side-effects.", and is something to think about before a diet is dramatically changed.

This is a very interesting article on probiotics, and the importance of a healthy flora. All humans are currently going through a process of microevolution where our natural flora (bacterium population)is mutating into a weaker verison of what they used to be.  Since the time that we invented fire and used it too cook our food over 200,000 years ago the diversity of bacterium in our GI tract has become "domesticated".
