Study finds sex signature in gut microbiota   The gut microbiota of men and women are different, according to a recent study in Plos One, updating previous studies that saw no sex signature in the gut microbiota. Furthermore, the study also suggests adiposity and fibre intake may influence gut flora. The study’s authors, from the New York University School of…

If you were to take a gram of your own faeces and analyse it, you would discover that it contains a greater number of bacteria than there are humans on the planet. As surprising as it may seem, it’s true that the human body is home to over 100 trillion microorganisms, which, if gathered together on a scale would weigh…

The Yanomami indigenous people, who live in the Amazonian jungle in Venezuela, have the most diverse collection of bacteria ever found in humans, some of which had never been previously identified, says a study published in Science Advances. In fact, some of these new microbes have a positive effect on health, such as protecting carriers against kidney stones. This semi-nomadic…

  Several studies have linked our lifestyle to gut microbiota composition. Factors such as continuous stress, an unbalanced diet rich in fats or sedentary habits, among others, are believed to be linked to our gut’s collection of microbes. The underlying mechanisms of this, however, were not fully understood. Now, new research published in Cell Reports suggests the reason why Western…

There are an endless number of differences between men and women and one of those differences is that eating exactly the same diet affects the gut microbiota composition of men and women differently, as a new study has recently showed. As we have already explained in this blog, it’s a well-known fact that the food we eat and our lifestyles…
