Gut Bacteria
Do you eat for human cells or bacterial cells: Modern Science is understanding the vital importance of Gut bacteria for human health. Recent Science journal has dedicated the whole of June 8th 2012 Issue for Gut bacteria because of the role of gut bacteria in immunity, allergy, cancer, diabetes, over weight and even psychological problems and even with the intervention of other medicines when we take to treat diseases.

Gut Bacteria
We are a bacteria body and not a human body: So we have to eat for the bacteria inside and not the human cells in us.
A Human body has 50 to 75 trillion human cells and more than 100 trillion bacteria cells and most of them in gut. Now researchers are finding that, it is the ratio of good bacteria over bad bacteria in gut that is the cause for obesity, allergies, immunity, high cholesterol, Autism (???), diabetes, depression and many more. So keep gut with good bacteria. Lactic acid bacteria are good bacteria.
Ingenious fermentation: In ancient India, most of the people ate fermented rice. That is cooked brown/red rice is soaked with well water and mixed with hands and left over night.  The beneficial bacteria on the skin gets into the rice and starts to grow and ferment. Next day this is eaten with salt and onions. 
Farmers worked in hot sun and I remember that by grandparents and uncles had excellent health when they were eating every day fermented rice and never had tiredness working even in hot sun. But today every body complains of tiredness and are over weight.
Very interesting observation was they ate three times the amount of rice and tapico starch than current people, but never were obese. This is due to their life style growing healthy bacteria in their gut. I had a chance to experiment this fact in one summer eating more carbohydrates in 2009.  This is now proved to be correct by modern science.
A scientist himself experimented on the importance of Gut bacteria in weight loss. My microbiome and me
Intelligent way to change you Gut bacteria for good Health.
Doing castor oil cleansing will wash out many bacteria out of gut and then drinking home made butter milk will populate good bacteria in Gut. This is the ancient Indian practice for restoring health. Click to read about Indian Yogurt.

Conclusion : Your health is not determined what you eat for the  human cells, but the food for the type of bacterial cells.

Metabolic output defines Escherichia coli as a health-promoting microbe against intestinal Pseudomonas aeruginosa.

Lactobacillus johnsonii L531 reduces pathogen load and helps maintain short-chain fatty acid levels in the intestines of pigs challenged with Salmonella enterica Infantis.

 SCFAs are secondary metabolites resulting from bacterial action on diet indigestible fraction that may influence host metabolism26  These findings are consistent with data from previous studies showing that circulating acetic acid is related to “de novo” lipogenesis and cholesterogenesis stimulation in the liver, while propionic acid seemed to inhibit them43,44, which reinforced the hypothesis that the ratio of acetic acid to propionic acid could be considered as a novel biomarker of the host lipid profile status.

Nevertheless, with regard to the role of acetic acid in lipid metabolism there are some controversies, since other authors have reported that dietary acetic acid is related to a decrease of both cholesterol and triglyceride levels in rats45

Dietary acetic acid reduce serum cholesterol and triacylglycerols in rats fed a cholesterol-rich dietBr J Nutr, 2006; 95: 916-924 To investigate the efficacy of the intake of vinegar for prevention of hyperlipidaemia, we examined the effect of dietary acetic acid, the main component of vinegar, on serum lipid values in rats fed a diet containing 1 % (w/w) cholesterol. Animals were allowed free access to a diet containing no cholesterol, a diet containing 1 % cholesterol without acetic acid, or a diet containing 1 % cholesterol with 0.3 % (w/w) acetic acid for 19 d. Then, they were killed after food deprivation for 7 h. Cholesterol feeding increased serum total cholesterol and triacylglycerol levels. Compared with the cholesterol-fed group, the cholesterol and acetic acid-fed group had significantly lower values for serum total cholesterol and triacylglycerols, liver ATP citrate lyase (ATP-CL) activity, and liver 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-CoA content as well as liver mRNA levels of sterol regulatory element binding protein-1, ATP-CL and fatty acid synthase (P<0.05). Further, the serum secretin level, liver acyl-CoA oxidase expression, and faecal bile acid content were significantly higher in the cholesterol and acetic acid-fed group than in the cholesterol-fed group (P<0.05). However, acetic acid feeding affected neither the mRNA level nor activity of cholesterol 7alpha-hydroxylase. In conclusion, dietary acetic acid reduced serum total cholesterol and triacylglycerol: first due to the inhibition of lipogenesis in liver; second due to the increment in faecal bile acid excretion in rats fed a diet containing cholesterol. Overproduction/accumulation of short chain fatty acids, but not lactic acid, in the proximal colon and/or distal ileum may play a role in the pathogenesis of necrotizing enterocolitis in premature infants.
