Gibberish[edit]

In the "Description" section, the following paragraph appears:

The compositions of microbiota rely on several factors like host diet, colonization history, and immune status.[15] Some microbes are better suited to complement specific metabolic enzymes over others. For example, Bacteroides change how they breakdown carbohydrates depending on if they received the right amount of certain substrates.[16] For instance, if humans began to fast extensively or discontinue feeding their bodies it would increase their intestinal permeability and in turn, hyper-stimulate the immune system and translocate the bacteria. This speaks nothing, but havoc and destruction on one’s body.

What the hell does "This speaks nothing, but havoc and destruction on one’s body." mean ?

I agree that it doesn't make sense, so I have removed the last two sentences from the paragraph. If anyone can figure out what was intended, they can rewrite it so that it is meaningful and add it back in. Deli nk (talk) 19:24, 15 January 2015 (UTC)
