The evolution of anything suggests the future, a new era and betterment.

In the dawn of a new year IPAs first 2021 webinar will touch on new concepts which may be based on older thought processes. Starting with good microbes tied to the decrease of communicable disease, then we explore circadian rhythms and how gut microbes dislike like vampirical situations and conclude with the idea of Pavlovian conditioning; there are things that do not need to be learned but are hard wired into their reflexes. Can bacteria surroundings react to changes in their environments and how this may influence human health in the future?
