“As I delved into our relationship to bacteria, which food brings you into (fermentation especially), it completely revolutionized my understanding of human identity. You know, you’re only 10% human? You’re 90% microbes. You’re a superorganism. The first person plural needs to be adopted by all of us.” — Michael Pollan
