We are not alone. As this enlightening video published by Huffington Post journalist Jacqueline Howard shows, we are walking ecosystems, as our bodies are colonised from top to bottom by microbes that, not happy with behaving like guests, are actually integrated into our biology. “They help us digest food, shape our immune system, alter our metabolism and evidence is even…

Prof. Jeffrey Gordon was invited to give a TED talk at the TEDxGatewayArch. His talk introduces the ideas of microbiota and microbiome, a new view to our connection to the microbial world as humans. He goes on detailing how our microbiome is for us a new way of considering our human evolution: it's a part of evolution that goes much…

Almost a year ago, we were at the Gut Microbiota for Health Summit in Madrid (March 2013). The event gathered many lead experts across gut microbiota-related topics. We then made interviews with some of the speakers and decided to pull their answers together to get an overview on the field. We are excited with the upcoming edition of the Gut…

In this video Dr. Jeffrey Bland discusses recent research into the gut microbiome. Some of the research cited includes work done by the Cleveland Clinic showing certain gut microbiota may convert animal products consumed in the diet into secondary metabolites that are possibly heart-disease inducing (“the Bad”). However, research out of Europe appears to demonstrate particular gut flora may enhance…

One year at a glance is the compilation of the most relevant and popular content on gut microbiota as published on the GMFH website.   The topic is rapidly growing across all fields of expertise and questions it raises are endless. It seems that hardly a day goes without gut microbiota being related to the health status (enterotypes, second genotype, ageing),…

We interviewed Prof. Paul O’Toole, Senior Lecturer at University College Cork, to discuss bacterial colonisation, or how bacteria reach the digestive tract from birth. The kind of birth, the family environment and food are some of the factors that initially influence the development of the gut microbiota, explains Prof. O’Toole. With time, the microbiota stabilises (except when we are affected…
