No one questions today the importance of the bacterial communities living in our digestive tract, our gut flora or gut microbiota, for our overall health and wellbeing. However, there is still a lack of more in-depth knowledge that could lead to the development of dietary or lifestyle interventions that could help prevent, for example, diet-related or behavioral disorders. A new…

Exercise is known to be essential for both our mental and our physical health. It is good for the heart, for keeping weight down and may help prevent some kinds of cancer; moreover, it can help keep our spirits up, as well as boosting our creativity and learning. According to a new study recently published in Gut, however, the benefits…

The mix of bacteria that live in our gut changes throughout the year, to match the food we eat in every specific season. For example, bacteria that process fresh fruit and vegetables are more abundant in the summer, and those that process fats are mode abundant in winter times. A group of scientists at the University of Chicago has found…

The DNA of the microbes conserved on the fossilised teeth of our ancestors – specifically the ones from the bacteria calcified in their tartar or dental calculus – contains a lot of information about the microbiota inhabiting the guts of the civilisations that lived thousands of years ago. With this finding, we can now discover the effects of dietary changes…

Do you want to know where the microbes that live in your digestive system come from? What is their relationship with metabolic conditions like diabetes or certain neurological disorders? Or perhaps you’re wondering how they change over time? These are just some of the questions answered by Youreka Science in this video that provides the essential information about our gut…

Science has been showing for a while now that, in the long term, the saying ‘you are what you eat’ is true, or at least in terms of the composition of our gut microbiota. Until recently, however, we didn’t know how quickly the microbiota – or the hundreds of trillions of bacteria and microorganisms that live in our digestive system…

Transferring microbes from the colon of a mouse with a colorectal tumour to a healthy mouse means the latter will also develop cancer, according to a study recently published in mBio® by Zackular JP  et al., the open access journal of The American Academy of Microbiology. It was already known that inflammation played an important role in the development of colorectal…
