The Invisible Universe of the Human Microbiome

NPR

The microbiome is the collection of microorganism that live in our gut, mouth, and skin. Microbiomes are key for immune health and other functions like digestion. The gut appears to the most complex and diverse—where pesticides can hurt the most. “So if it’s not functioning properly for some reason, because of what we eat, antibiotics we take, that may actually lead to all kinds of diseases. Diseases like colon cancer, colitis, maybe even diabetes and obesity.”

Autism’s Causes:  How Close Are We to Solving the Puzzle?

Dr. David Amaral, Director of research at Mind Institute and Dr. Martha Herbert, Professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School, discuss the environmental, genetic, and immune system components that contribute to autism.

“There is a small subset of children who may be particularly vulnerable to vaccines –if the child was ill, if the child had a precondition like mitochondrial defect. Vaccinations for those children actually may be the environmental factor that tip them over the edge of autism. It is incredibly important to try to figure out, what if any vulnerabilities in a small subset of children might make them at risk for having certain vaccinations.” – Dr. David Amaral, Director of research at Mind Institute.
