While you may think of bacteria as something bad that you should avoid, the bacteria inside your gut can keep you healthy. The human gastrointestinal tract harbors 100 trillion microbes known as your microbiome that play an important role in maintaining health. Disruptions of the microbiome can lead to serious health problems. Research at the Mayo Clinic Center for Individualized Medicine Microbiome Program is seeking to understand how the microbiome promotes wellness and how disruption of the microbiome can enable disease.
On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, Dr. Purna Kashyap, co-director of the Mayo Clinic Center for Individualized Medicine Microbiome Program, will discuss microbiome research. Also on the program, Dr. Robert Jacobson, a Mayo Clinic pediatrician, will share what you need to know about bats and rabies. And Dr. Karen Swanson, a Mayo Clinic pulmonologist, will share the latest information on the vaping crisis.
