With Professor and Research Scientist Tim Spector
17th September | 1,5 CPD
Approximately 100 trillion micro-organisms (most of them bacteria, but also viruses, fungi, and protozoa) exist in the human gastrointestinal tract. Gut microbes are key to many aspects of human health including immune, metabolic and neurobehavioural traits. Different levels of evidence support the role of gut microbiota in human health, from animal models and human studies. The human genome consists of about 23 000 genes, whereas the microbiome encodes over three million genes producing thousands of metabolites, which replace many of the functions of the host, consequently influencing the host’s fitness, phenotype, and health
