The Atlantic Interviews Dr. Robynne Chutkan

The wise people at The Atlantic have interviewed Dr. Robynne Chutkan about her new book with the (somewhat awkward) title Gutbliss: A 10-Day Plan to Ban Bloat, Flush Toxins, and Dump Your Digestive Baggage. [Note to Dr. Chutkan: my own book title has the even awkwarder title of "   " so no hard feelings.  Also, bold choice with the Oxford comma; I like.]

As you might guess from the title, Dr. Chutkan's concern lies with the gut, and the way that what we put into it (and what comes out of it) affects our health and appearance on many levels.  Chutkan invokes the words of Hippocrates ("All disease begins in the gut") and outlines the way that applies to overall wellness.  The entire interview is worth reading, and it's certainly piqued my interest in the book as well.  Link is below.
