The ecology of the gut and what this means for product development
What is the importance of and the implications of gut microbiome diversity? Dr. Walter has done a great deal of work in this area. He has authored studies on the gut microbiome makeup of populations from Papua New Guinea and of inhabitants of the Venezuelan rainforest. Which species are missing from the modern gut?
Should probiotics formulators be seeking to reintroduce these? Dr. Walter will investigate these and other questions.
