Video   Dec 14, 2017 | Original video from Stanford University

 

Your body hosts literally trillions of organisms—bacteria, fungi, viruses, and other tiny life forms—that collectively make up your microbiome. But what does your microbiome do, and how can it affect your health? Dr. Sonnenburg, bestselling author of The Good Gut, will explain the link between our Western diet and chronic illness. He’ll also suggest ways you can take back the reins and restore your health through diet and lifestyle. Presentation by Justin Sonnenburg, PhD, Associate Professor of Microbiology and Immunology.
