A team of researchers has found that the key to treating autism in children may lie in the gut, not the brain.
New research reveals that male and female gut microbes react differently to diet. The study revealed that this sex difference exists even when the diets are the same.
Adjusting gut bacteria may help prevent obesity and diabetes, a new study suggests.
We have trillions of bacteria living in our intestines. All together, the bacteria living in our gut weigh around 1.5 kilograms. A major part of these "blind passengers" were unknown because they were difficult or impossible to grow in laboratories. Now, scientists have discovered a link between richness of bacterial species in the intestines and the susceptibility of medical complications related to obesity.
