Good And Bad Bugs - the Human Microbiome

ElderCollege Course

In the last six years there has been a scientific revolution in the understanding of the human microbiome - the trillions of bacteria that live in/on us and are now known to be essential for normal development and function of our brain, immune system, and metabolism. Learn how medical science is taking the first small steps that could lead to powerful new approaches to obesity, diabetes, asthma, allergies and autism.
