Miracle Weapon Microbiome. Small helpers - big effect
Every human being is actually a huge residential community - with its microbiome. The microbiome is a mixture of millions of different microorganisms, mainly bacteria, which colonize every cavity of the human body and also cavort on the skin. Many of the beneficial co-inhabitants live in the gut. "We are only ten percent ourselves - the rest is a cluster of germs," says Peter Holzer, Professor of Experimental Neurogastroenterology at MedUni Graz. He is one of the top scientists from twelve institutions participating in the MyNewGut project, which the EU is funding with nine million euros. Research is being conducted into the effects the microbiome has on our mental and physical health.
