Abstract

Without doubt, the original function of the human gut was to digest and absorb food. Its epithelial cells absorb food after it has been processed to smaller components by enzymatic digestion. Comparable epithelial processes are also found in animals, including sea animals, and plants [1]. Disturbance of the gut homeostasis by infections leads to disease.
