Follow Your Gut : The Enormous Impact of Tiny Microbes
by Rob Knight and Brendan Buhler




Overview -
Allergies, asthma, obesity, acne: these are just a few of the conditions that may be caused--and someday cured--by the microscopic life inside us. The key is to understand how this groundbreaking science influences your health, mood, and more.

In just the last few years, scientists have shown how the microscopic life within our bodies-- particularly within our intestines--has an astonishing impact on our lives. Your health, mood, sleep patterns, eating preferences--even your likelihood of getting bitten by mosquitoes--can be traced in part to the tiny creatures that live on and inside of us.

In Follow Your Gut, pioneering scientist Rob Knight pairs with award-winning science journalist Brendan Buhler to explain--with good humor and easy-to-grasp examples--why these new findings matter to everyone. They lead a detailed tour of the previously unseen world inside our bodies, calling out the diseases and conditions believed to be most directly impacted by them.

With a practical eye toward deeper knowledge and better decisions, they also explore the known effects of antibiotics, probiotics, diet choice and even birth method on our children's lifelong health. Ultimately, this pioneering book explains how to learn about your own microbiome and take steps toward understanding and improving your health, using the latest research as a guide.
