SITN_guthealth_postcard_new Trust Your Gut: How Helpful Bacteria Impact Health Did you know that you are carrying about 2 pounds of living bacteria inside you right now!? That’s 10 times more bacteria cells than your own cells! That may sound creepy but symbiotic microbes are helpful to us in many aspects of health and wellness. Come listen to three Yale scientists present exciting new research about how gut bacteria help us digest our food and contribute to our mental health, and how they have changed over the eons. In this relatively new field there are still many unanswered questions, but one thing’s for sure - we can trust our gut to these “microbe managers!”
