The Microbiome in Health and Disease
We change our microbiomes every day through the foods we eat, the environments we experience, even the people we live and work with. Through the American Gut Project, the largest crowdfunded citizen-science project yet conducted, we now know about the microbiomes of many types of people, from the healthiest (student-athletes, centenarians) to the sickest (cancer patients, ICU patients, those with C. diff). This raises the prospect of a system for real-time analysis of our microbiomes that helps guide our daily decisions in a way that optimizes our microbiomes for life-long wellness.
