Read full description of the books:
I've heard of gut biomes often--mostly in the context of their effect on obesity--but this story takes them in an interesting direction. As humanity goes to the stars, it rids itself of its native bacteria, but one planet has not only embraced their innumerable single-celled cohabitants, but has discovered a method of controlling them with what they eat, in a practice connected to the five Chinese elements. One of the bacteria-free space explorers lands on this strange planet and begins to learn about this strange practice, and finds herself feeling things eradicated among the space-faring humans.
This piece is just so unique. I would certainly recommend it to anyone with a bit of interest in parasitology.
