Our Miraculous Microbiome Is Under Threat
Our microbiome, the collection of microbes that live in and on our bodies, is under threat. Antibiotics, processed foods, and even stress can disrupt the delicate balance of our gut bacteria, leading to a range of health problems. Problems with our gut microbiome could be factors in the rise of diabetes, obesity, food allergies and even developmental disorders like autism.
We talk withÂ filmmakers Sarah Schenck and Steven Lawrence about their film The Invisible Extinction. Itâ€™s about the threats to our life-supporting microbiome and the scientists racing to save our vanishing microbes before it’s too late.
