Our understanding of how to treat and prevent diseases has been transformed by knowledge of the microbiome--the rich ecosystem of microorganisms that is in and on every human. In Gut Feelings, Fasano and Flaherty show why we must go beyond the older, myopic view of microorganisms as our enemies to a broader understanding of the microbiome as a parallel civilization that we need to understand, respect, and engage with for the benefit of our own health. As Mark Hyman, New York Times best-selling author of Food Fix; Head of Strategy and Innovation at the Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine points out, “The microbiome revolution proves the old adage that ‘you are what you eat.’
Why the microbiome--our rich inner ecosystem of microorganisms--may hold the keys to human health.
