Physician and microbiologist Martin Blaser discusses how changes in the human microbiome - through the overuse of antibiotics for example - may be contributing to an increase in chronic conditions including obesity, allergic disorders, and diabetes.

makes sense, I actualy want this to be true because if it is the public health issue will be much easier to control.

I wonder if there could be a correlation with micro biodiversity and food allergies.

+redventrue1 I think there almost certainly has to be. The human microbiome is the next frontier of health and medicine. It's very exciting.

Just a year ago we heard about antibiotics being linked to obesity, now it's diabetes. What's next? http://www.pressreader.com/channel/Lucie_Gretchen/ZA8EO3LIF5E1/t635765858334430000

Great info, but unless you were speaking at a democrat event, your very off topic, political remarks no doubt alienated a good portion of your audience - very unprofessional for a public speaker. If you really want to get your info out, stick to your topic and don't pointlessly alienate the very people you are trying to reach.

Thanks. No problem.

+Mia Cabanting Actually, it should have read, "you were." But thanks anyway. And keep trying, you'll be a grammar Nazi yet.

what's the deal with the democrat science tricks. he shows a graph of two years to demonstrate some goofball algore theory, where is the rest of the graph, then this clown announces that he's part of some biased group in new york, which is a bastion of morons, so let me guess, his income comes from those tax dollars,,,,,,,,

Very interesting! Thank you! I had to stop and rewind a couple of times.. it is pretty late though ;)
Microbiology researchers recently proved that populations of microbes living in and on the human body affect their hosts’ health. In this abridged video, physician and microbiologist Martin Blaser discusses how changes in the human microbiome - for example, through the overuse of antibiotics and hand sanitizers - may be contributing to an increase in chronic conditions including obesity, allergic disorders, and diabetes. This video was shot at the November 2014 SciCafe. Grab a cocktail and join us for the January 7 SciCafe: The Science Behind Football. RSVP: http://bit.ly/1BfB60k
