Firmicutes and Bacteroidetes

Oh we do have an image problem with this one:

Firmicute is a positive cheerleader of a word, sounds so much more appealing than Bacteroidetes. Shouldn't someone with an abundance of Firmicutes be bouncy and rounded, bubbling with health? And yet those with a predominance of Bacteroidetes in their gut are the ones with waists, and the Firmicute team are OBESE.

There is no justice in the world of NomenClutter.
