Gut microbiota is a rapidly moving field of research generating growing interest in media and society in general. An example of this interest is the huge number of articles published in the media and programs featured by TV and radio broadcasters focusing on the key role it might play in our physical and even psychological health. In this very vein,…

A growing number of scientific studies show diet can affect health through the gut microbiota. “By modulating your diet, you can also modulate your microbes. Microbes can contribute to the severity or the onset of a disease. But if your diet is wrong or unhealthy, that is the first cause,” highlights Clara Belzer. Food and dietary patterns actually have differing…

What happens if we don’t feed our gut microbiota? According to Mahesh Desai, researcher at the Luxembourg Institute of Health, the gut barrier might be destroyed or eroded and that could potentially lead to intestinal diseases. “We have a gut microbiota that is evolved to feed on the fibers that we eat, but it has also evolved to feed on…

Warren Peters has dedicated the last part of his medical career to study the molecular and genetic basis of obesity. In this talk at TEDxLaSierraUniversity (California, US) held in April 2016, Peters wonders if the new discoveries about the microbiome may change the way we understand diabetes and obesity, as well as Alzheimer's disease, autism, and our everyday health and…
