    Default Scientists Discover Nutrient That Helps Prevent Bacterial Infection ts

    Scientists know that microbiota -- the trillions of beneficial microbes living harmoniously inside our gut -- can protect people from bacterial infections, but little is known about how they provide protection. Scientists are studying the microbiota with an eye to finding or enhancing natural treatments to replace antibiotics, which harm microbiota and become less effective as bacteria develop drug resistance.
