Video: Gut Microbiota: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

In this video Dr. Jeffrey Bland discusses recent research into the gut microbiome. This research illustrates the systemic effects of intestinal composition on drug response, and inflammatory and immune response. Some of the research cited includes work done by the Cleveland Clinic showing certain gut microbiota may convert animal products consumed in the diet into secondary metabolites that are possibly heart-disease inducing (“the Bad”). However, research out of Europe appears to demonstrate particular gut flora may enhance the effects of chemotherapy drugs, improving efficacy (the “Good”).
