Background and guest information

Next time you are trying to decide what’s for dinner, consider that you are eating for two. You and your gut microbiome.

The bacterial community in your colon is home to about 100 trillion bacterial cells; there are about 10 times more of these bacterial cells than there are human cells in your body, and they represent a vast number of different species.

Join Dr. Ritamarie and Steph Jackson as they discuss how to keep your microbiome mass of bacteria happy.  Gut microbiomes that contain healthy, inflammation-reducing bacteria could help reduce the risk of a myriad health conditions: cancer, heart disease, and infection.
