According to researchers, analyzing the gut microbiome of premature babies may help develop personalized feeding patterns and nutrients to help them get stronger.
A new mouse study reveals pups of mothers who faced prenatal stress and who were exposed, by birth, to maternal vaginal microbiota had decreased body weight and exhibited increased stress hormones as adults.
A new study reveals smokers have lower levels of Baceroids in their microbiome. In contrast, the levels of Bacteriods were the same level in vapers as in non-smokers. Decreased Bacteriod levels are associated with obesity and Chron's disease.
Vaping e-cigarettes modulates the oral microbiome and increases the abundance of pathobionts. The aerosols in vaping products alter the host response, prompting gum inflammation and making epithelial cells in the mouth susceptible to infection.
A new study reports a mother's diet during pregnancy may have an effect on the composition of her child's gut bacteria. The effect, researchers report, may vary by the method of delivery at birth.
Whole-body vibration (WBV) therapy may be a way in which inflammation associated with diabetes can be controlled. WBV alters the microbiome, increasing levels of a bacterium that creates short-chain fatty acids, which help the body to better use glucose.
Researchers reveal a surprising association between nicotine addiction and gut bacteria. Gender smoking patterns and the effect nicotine has on a person may be a result of how the gut-brain relationship is impacted by nicotine.
People who follow a more restricted, plant based diet have more diverse gut microbiota, a new study reports.
