At the occasion of the World Digestive Health Day (WDHD), on Thursday, May 29, the United European Gastroenterology (UEG) and European Society of Neurogastroenterology and Motility (ESNM) produced a short video on the importance of gut microbes in health and disease. It was also backed up by the World Gastroenterology Organisation (WGO), medical associations, patient organisations and the charity foundation Core.
