Inside out at the 2014 AAAS meeting: The impact of gut flora on diabetes and obesity
Date:2/14/2014

In recent years, the 1.5 kilos of bacteria that live inside our bodies, mainly in the gut, have proven their crucial importance for our healthy functioning. Beyond their more obvious role in digestion, they are also involved, for example, in the development of the immune system and the neuronal system, and in the onset of certain diseases.

Three leading European researchers on the gut microbiome will share their recent findings on the relations between gut flora and obesity, diabetes, and cardio-metabolic diseases in general.
