Presentation: 00:08:25 - 01:26:53

Have you wondered how your gut “bugs”, or microbes, compare to those of your ancestors? Or if your gut inhabitants have more to do with your daily life than you had previously thought?

Hawthorn University welcomes Tami Chu for her presentation Obesity and the Gut Microbiome.

In this webinar, Tami talks about the gut microbiome as our own personal "pet", discusses the links to obesity, describes her own personal microbiome experiment, and then shows some potential lifestyle adjustments we can make to "stack the deck" in favor of leanness and overall health.
