The answer is absolutely yes. There have been some good links posted. Hopefully the next few years there will be more research as we finally acknowledge that our gut is essentially a second brain that needs to be kept healthy and functioning. Artificial sweetners, corn syrup, fried crap, poor diet is just not good on so many levels. Your gut bactiria actually help you digest food and directly affect you via chemicals and nutrients released. Its a wholistic system that we may never fully understand but we are getting there.

I'd like to also add another bit of interest since you wanted to "know more". Proof in someways on how important gut bacteria is to our overall health. There exists a treatment for people with intestinal issues which, summed up, is essentially a poop transplant. They take some from a very healthy person and seed your gut with it. All that healthy bacteria take hold and suddenly you are functioning significantly better.

(First link i found, in sure theres better ones)
