Two recent studies, the first one led by Dr. Jeroen Raes from the VIB Centre for the Biology of Disease/Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB)/KU Leuven-University of Leuven (Belgium), and the second one led by Dr. Jingyuan Fu from the University of Groningen (Netherlands), show gut microbiota variation among healthy individuals related to diet, lifestyle, and medication.
