Microbiomes anyone?

This is a U of C introduction lecture about some research into our microbiomes. They really seem to have a tremendous amount of control over our lives. The lecture touches obesity, parkinsons, an African childhood disease, mood as in bold/timid. I don't recall it touching the recent 'endurance athlete' microbiome findings.

YouTube: Follow Your Gut: Microbiomes and Aging with Rob Knight - Research on Aging ~56 minutes, can be ripped to podcast without loss even though there are slides.

If anyone is interested in a method to quickly make podcasts from YouTube audio let me know. This one took two minutes to set up and was ripped in five or so minutes on open source software (VLC.)

There's apparently a theory out there that autism is caused by gut bacteria.

From an evolutionary viewpoint, one could make the argument that the ecosystem in your gut is the dominant life form, and you evolved mainly to serve as its host. There are more of those one-celled organisms living in and on you than you have cells of your own - by a substantial factor.

Everything causes autism! Vaccine, micrombiom, paint, you name it.

Google it. There's been a significant amount of research into it.
