Bacteria in our body determine health and disease

Role of microorganisms in the human underestimated so far There is a powerful and invisible Kingdom, which ruled largely undetected in the human body, about health and illness, decides. The speech is from the human Microbiome, i.e., the total number of microorganisms that colonize in a human. These billions of micro live support beings, and

Diet affects the breast microbiome in mammals

Diet influences the composition of microbial populations in the mammary glands of nonhuman primates, researchers report October 2 in the journal Cell Reports. Specifically, a Mediterranean diet increased the abundance of probiotic bacteria previously shown to inhibit tumor growth in animals. “We showed for the first time that breast-specific microbiome populations are significantly affected by

Gut microbes influence severity of intestinal parasitic infections

A new study indicates that the kinds of microbes living in the gut influence the severity and recurrence of parasitic worm infections in developing countries. The findings, by researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, suggest that manipulating the gut’s microbial communities may protect against intestinal parasites, which affect more than 1
