GMFH releases Nutrition and Gut Microbiota Workshop report from 6th Gut Microbiota for Health World Summit
The workshop —called “Nutrition and the human gut microbiome: What should health professionals know for their daily practice?”— addressed issues and questions relevant to nutrition practice.
Public awareness about the importance of the gut microbiota is growing, but many nutrition professionals struggle to know how to incorporate findings from gut microbiota science into their practice. In a rapidly-progressing field, what should clinicians know about how gut microbes and diet interact to produce different health outcomes?
At the 2017 Gut Microbiota for Health World Summit in Paris on March 11th and 12th, Dr. Elena Verdú, Associate Professor at McMaster University (Canada) chaired a special workshop for registered dietitians and physicians specializing in nutrition and gastrointestinal disorders. The workshop —called “Nutrition and the human gut microbiome: What should health professionals know for their daily practice?”— addressed issues and questions relevant to nutrition practice.
The official report of this clinically-oriented session is now available! See below or download it at this link.

Studies over the last decade have brought new hope that gut microbiome-targeted therapeutics might offer novel treatments for obesity. In this post, we ask whether dietary interventions, prebiotics, probiotics and medication that target the microbiome are useful for weight management.
The 11th Gut Microbiota for Health World Summit focused on emerging gut microbiome-targeted treatments in digestive, immune and cardiometabolic health. This post highlights the major take-aways from the conference and explores how they might impact clinical practice in the foreseeable future.
Following the GMFH 2022 Year at a Glance report, it is time for a flashback in the latest research on cancer microbiome. This post ranges between the epidemiology, etiology and diagnosis of cancer, looking at the role of fungal and bacterial gut microbiome in all three health care branches.
