Just when we thought we knew all the basics about the human body, anatomists made three surprising discoveries in 2016. The newfound human body complexity borders on science fiction.
The first find: Special cells transport germs from a mother’s gut to her baby’s gut system through the mother’s milk.1 The germs, or intestinal microbes, help both mother and baby digest food. The transport system includes elaborate cross-checks. It’s like going through customs during international travel. The microbes get chaperoned through the mother’s blood stream into mammary tissues to become incorporated in mother’s milk.
Not only that, a healthy mother’s body also selects the right germs to help her baby digest the particular nutrients the mother’s milk will be supplying that day. Obviously a super-genius was at work when He designed this real-time mother-baby interactive biology.
