About this book

World-leading scientists, Justin and Erica Sonnenburg explain the most up-to-date science behind why what happens in our gut is responsible for everything from our weight to how we age, our allergies and our diseases. Living in our gut are 1,200 species of bacteria. There used to be more but these microbes are facing mass extinction. Why? And why is it so important that we keep these bacteria off the endangered species list? The Good Gut reveals that what happens in our gut plays a critical role in preventing illnesses such as cancer, diabetes, asthma, autism and inflammatory bowel disease. And it includes a brilliant, seven-day, family-friendly, gut-healthy meal plan with recipes to revive you own individual microbiome. If you care about your gut – if you loved Giulia Enders' Gut – this is a must-read.
