The microbes are tiny, the promise is huge.
We depend on a vast army of microbes to stay alive: a microbiome that protects us against germs, breaks down food to release energy, and produces vitamins. But disruptions of this incredible ecosystem are linked with autoimmune diseases, inflammatory disorders, and obesity. JAX scientist George Weinstock, Ph.D., Director of Microbial Genomics and Evnin Family Chair, leads an interactive discussion on how a microbiome-based approach to living well can help us treat disease and enhance our health.
