Dr. Richard Matthews, DC DACNB FACFN about this book: Human gut bacteria, our microbiome, outnumber our human cells by 10:1 and their genes outnumber our human genes at least 100:1. The last few years have shown us an explosion of new research studies explaining how vitally important our gut symbionts are to brain, immune, hormone and mental/emotional function. The new information has been very slow to be incorporated into healthcare, and most people have no idea what is good or bad for gut bacteria or why it matters. The Symbiont Factor was written to translate the language of peer reviewed research to normal English, bringing a new understanding of gut bacteria to more people. The book is heavily referenced with over 1300 studies in the bibliography, and is a comprehensive guide to everything about gut bacteria packaged in an entertaining clear format. Functional relationships between immune factors, microbiome, and environmental factors such as diet are explained with simple flow charts. The Symbiont Factor will make you respect the gut and our symbiont organisms that live within!
